Caveman Sketches


It's DrawerGeeks Friday! Topic is 'caveman'. How could you not have fun with this? Anyway, I did two different sketches. One slightly experimental - painting with textures in photoshop, and another ballpoint sketch.

The first one with all the textures reminds me of fae changeling, in the stone age. More Norse, in an epic feel sort of way. The second one is SO CUTE. I love the two different styles. Keep them coming, it's lovely to see you posting you know!

Awesome stuff Marco. I especially like the life drawings. Let me know whenever you and Jay feel like taking a break and going to Starbucks to doodle. It'll be nice to draw ppl that aren't sleeping for a change.. darn tired commuters.

Man, these are great like always. I love the top one! Not so much a suggestion, but curious, have you tried adding some highlights in to pop out certain features, like the nose?

They both look great, I think I like the experiment with photoshop most
