Oh man! It's so damn late (almost ten to bloody three at night), but I still wanted to upload a thing or two before I went to bed.
This evening I went to Kid's Rhythm 'n' Blues Café in Antwerp on my own. To draw (drunk) people in their natural habitat. Also, I really like the music there, which inspired me to make some music-themed drawings which will come up later on. But like I said, it's goddamn late so I'm going to keep it short for tonight.
This was a good experience and I think I'll repeat it, even though I have gotten some weird looks. Interested looks and a bit of a chat here and there too, so that's no problem.

Here's one of the first sketches I did! Conté pencils, and happy with them.

This one's a bit strange, but meh, it's funny too.

Well, that's it for this evening. I'm hitting the sack. I'll upload some more tomorrow, while pausing from working on my AVAT-thing.

Looking slick! I've never used conte pencils, in fact, I have so little official art training I've barelly used conte at all. If the 'lead' as soft as actual conte? Rock on, keep'm coming! :P

Thanks! Well, the pencils are a mix. Some of the colours were really soft, like the black I used. The dark brown and reddish brown were a bit more 'scratchy', but that has a nice feel too.

Here's another one, spread over two pages. Heh, having a pool table in a bar always makes it nicer.

'Nother one.
For those who a at a bit of a loss after reading what I wrote down, they were playing Oh la la la, and the singer's pronunciation of "c'est magnifique" is rather funny.
The dancing guy later drew something in my sketchbook, haha.

Oh, and the stuff that 'shines' through the previous page is what the dancing guy drew in my sketchbook.

Last one of that evening, again music-based. I had to adjust the levels in this one, otherwise it would have been only half visible.
These aren't the only ones I made, but the rest isn't very interesting. And I think this amount of uploads will do for now anyway..

For the next-to-last round of AVAT. It's mediocre at best, but I lost my wacom pen (still haven't found it goddamnit) so I had to start again on paper. Sucks.

Hey, what do you do when you feel like a miserable sack of potatoes?
You draw yourself like a miserable sack of potatoes. Obviously.

It might even help! Also drawing and painting bags under eyes is fun. In a sad way.

Forgetting to add your drawing to your post for the first time is also great.

Oh, haha, thanks. In a silly way it does, actually.
Well, yes, in hindsight it isn't as bad as I thought when I finished it. I was mostly disappointed that I had to start over because I lost my wacom pen.
Still haven't found it, argh.

I found it! Although I have searched under, around and inside my couch, apparently it was just beside it on the ground.
This does mean we have to have a word with our cleaninglady wo apparently failed to see my pen while cleaning yesterday..

Anyway, to celebrate I made this little thing! Probably very accurate.

Hi folks! I have been trying something new the past few days, and it has paid off. Following the advice of Spac3case916 and NinjaThumb on my Bubble Friends picture, I have tried to convert that drawing/collage into a T-shirt. And I thought I'd show you guys.

Also, I'll have a spot on Lambermontmarte this sunday, an art-market in Antwerp where I'll try to sell more self-made shirts, for any accidental Belgians in the audience.

Anyway, bubbleshirt!

Thanks! Deciding where the bubbles go was actually harder than it probably seems.

Next shirt. I'm sorry the pic is pretty crappy, but I made it using the built-in webcam in my laptop. So yeah, I was hovering my computer over the table, very practical.

hrm.... I think I'd like it more if the illustration was bigger; I'd say it'd still work with both graphics at double size.
also: I had a bit of a rabbit/duckmoment there

Hm, yeah, could be. But the bigger the stencil, the harder it is to neatly stick on the fabric, especially with all the little frizzles on the side. And I have to work with really tiny bottles of paint :D
It would be a super awesome duck though.

Fourth shirt! (Yes, there is a third but that one is pretty meh, so I won't post it) Variation of my bubbleshirt. It looks red in the picture, but it's actuall hot pink.

Last shirt, woot! D'awww, hedgehog. Full view and close-up.

For some reason, I find women's shirts a lot easier to do than men's. For a man it's either too cute, or just boring. Oh well, worries for tomorrow.

...
Fuck I am tired. These shirts take roughly 3 hours to make each, without the drying time. Pfff.

This has been an awesome day. I'm completely exhausted, but it has been an awesome day. I only sold one T-shirt, the one with the hedgehog, but I have three more I'm going to make as commissions, and a lot of people want me to draw them a comic, a cartoon or work with them on something else.
Nice.

So I thought I'd post a picture a friend of mine took while I was still busy making my 'nameplate' to stick on my table. It was still early and the market wasn't open yet, it became a lot busier later that day. And you can see my T-shirts hanging from the coat rack behind me.
Also I went to a little free-drawing gathering which was a lot of fun too, I'll post some of the pics I drew tomorrow.

So, 5 minute sketch of a guy of the drawing session last night. Also the hat of another, but then I remembered I suck at drawing hats and he wouldn't stay still so I stopped.

The little introduction I made of myself to stick onto my table at Lambermontpartre, underneath my name. Very very quick selfportrait here.

And this was made for a guy that asked me to draw him a dumb goofball.

I actually have a feeling I make better drawings when I make them for someone or something else than myself. Hm.

That looks really good, I like the flexibility! I also enjoy the dude with the ballet outfit on (idk what you'd call it), the anatomy looks great. I like your cartoon style you have, it works really well. :D
