Monsters and Facial Exercises!

First off here's a color monster drawing! RAAAWR!

I wanted a way to warm up before penciling and inking, so I started doing this exercise recently to get all the nervousness out of my hands before hitting a page. I've found recently too, that I enjoy only drawing in pens and markers in my sketchbook. Sure, I'll make mistakes and I'll have bad drawings, but no every drawing is going to be pretty, right?

I just wanted to use my sketchbook to have fun drawing. Plus it helps me come up with background characters for other possible stories!

I start by filling a page loosely with random shapes for heads. I wanted to stick away from traditional shaped heads, so that I could force myself to come up with something interesting and make a more exaggerated character from just a quick, loose shape. This is what I start with:

After I've laid these quick shapes down then I just have fun and let my hand do the creating. It's not really something I think about too much. It's just a way to step away from work and have fun drawing! These are some of what happens after I draw over the shape!

Hope you enjoyed them, and try the same in your sketchbooks too! Have a great weekend!
