Last weekend I went to a fun Dr. Sketchy session at Blick Art Materials in New Jersey. The model, Scarlet Stepford, dressed in several different anime and comic book inspired costumes. Her Officer Jenny (from Pokemon) costume was one of my favorites, especially the bright blue wig. Along with the drawings I did I also took some Hipstamatic reference photos to work from at home. I used Sketchbook Mobile and imported the image into ArtRage to give it the painterly textures. I was thinking of Wayne Thiebaud’s painting and his use of thick, colorful brushstrokes.
