View Full Version : Some comics-like quick drawing to relax

10-24-2014, 03:08 AM
Imaginary playful excercise ... as inspired by some of works (painting with wizard, owl, framed officer touching a lady) and a guy I saw once getting out from the underground (no bus Mr. Ploos, but certainly You're my greatest example here!) ... Nothing special, but I hope You like also this simple style. BTW the officer is a year 2050 British one, as You may desume from the stick ... LOL:o;)

Caesar...I like your character study, the one in the lower right corner made me think of Uncle Fester of the Addams family...
Good stuff....
Take care,

Such wonderful, humorous drawings Caesar! Your people are so anatomically correct, they always impress me! :) :)

Thank You, dear Sandra! I'm afraid I always a tendency to turn people and their main features into pin-ups, caricaturs or semi-monsters, but that's probably more enjoyable and natural to me than to vainly try real fine art with my skills and even more modest artistry ...

You're too right, Sir McPloos! George Orwell was an absolutely unique visionnaire genius and we're doing our best to turn this qorld into one of the most frightening sci-fi post-catastrophe environment.:( Thank You!

That's true, dear Steve! Uncle Fester out of an humanized owl! Just removing the feathers ... ehm, the hair from the top of his head! Thank You!

I can assure, dear Robyn, that I didn't dissect any corpse to learn something about anathomy and proportions to draw these figures though, although I confess I saw butcher's dissection of animals and I eat lamb's meat and many other types too, including seafood!:eek:;):oLOL Drawing directly, fast and credibly enough human figures and heads, from any perspective, without reference is the little natural talent I have since ever, unfortunately I never substantially grew artistically too far from it ...:(;) Thank You!

These are well done Caesar, neat, clean style and expressive..:).

Thank You, dear Waheed! Speed and shape drawing are probably the key. The less I work on an imaginary illustration, the most spontaneously and loose I proceed and the neatest are the outcomes of my drawing-prone brain and hand .. eheheh;):o

Marvelous! Really cool drawings, Caesar. You're getting really good at this stuff. That British officer is really great, although I would have thought him German and with a monocle, from the early days of motion pictures in Hollywood. We had a very famous (at the time) film maker/director/actor named Erich von Stroheim who would fit this drawing well. He was a bit notorious and the one who set the cliche for this look of the aristocratic officer of the WWI vintage because he also brought this persona to the screen. But I think he was the real deal. Very few people would actually know him now other than film students.


And the other characters of course are great, well-known types as well. Bravo!

Dear DAkey, curiously I know of V Str., maybe because I'm old enough alas to have seen also some vintage movie scenes. As for Your compliments what can I say? Thank You very much!:( che si

What a fun set of characters! Sei geniale caro Cesare ;)Cerea

great thread dear Caesar, you talent for quick characters well painted is on fine display with this set... your mouse must be quite the yoga aficionado to retain such flexibility to come up with all these.

Grazie caro Andrea! Forza Toro né? Le altre italiane, Fiorentina a parte, non hanno brillato.

Thank You, dear Gary! My mouse is flattered by Your compliments!:D:o

Gary, don't go flattering Caesar's mouse over much. It might get a swelled head.
