The Goldman Sachs grave

Here is a illustration made and inspired by the great world we are living in now financially speaking and those who has played a major role in making that grave, I thought it was the appropriate time for this kind of evil picture:-)
Apart from the mockery it has been a very good learning experience of doing it all analog. I made it with pencils and graphite powder that i have spread out with a paint brush and rendered further with the pencils going from HB to 4B. I can really recommend the pure graphite powder i got from Sennelier and the paper from Daler/Rowney the heavyweight version.

Here is the sketches from the last 2 weeks more or less if I remember correctly.. i had a good day out in the park yesterday, doing most of these sketches. That day I also acquired my self a folding stool, since I am getting a bit more into this sketching thing, it is really something my back appreciates.
It is a really great for me coming back into this sketching thing, which I haven't been doing much or since drawing class many years ago..:-) and gives some quick personal drawings in between all the productions drawings i do at the moment for an Israeli company named Animationlab. 
They are a really kind bunch of animations people that has given me a really interesting design job for their first feature and if I am not wrong the first Israeli animated feature film.. can't say more but one day ill post some of the drawings when we are done with the film... until then you must do with my sketches and there are more in the bag to be released soon:-)

I have begun working a bit on getting some of my new ideas down on the paper in a clear and effective way and also practicing on my workbook skills, keeping it simple!! (it is hard when you love to render).
Thanks to Nima Azarba for letting me work with his awesome ink brush:-)

Digital sketchbook page 2

Hi guys... here is more character designs from my sketchbook and the personal test's I do to learn more about color and getting the right texture feel to it.. I have found it a little difficult to get the right pencil/paper look and keeping the colors from looking dirty or too dark, but I am quite happy with this one so far:-)..
