Outcast Studios - LIVE DRAW NIGHT September 2011

Outcast logo

Hey folks!

This weekend, with the crew at the Outcast forums, we had yet another one of those so called "Live Draw Nights"! I tried to keep the rhythm, 4 hours of drawings sketches, while keeping my Twitter account updated during the night.

So, there's that. (if you want to follow me there!)

Like the previous times, we had a great time. Various characters and fun ideas during the night.

For those who don't know what I'm talking about... It's a art jam challenge, a sort of "drawing practice session" if you want. Divided in 4 hours, we received various characters ideas to draw under a specific time. Lots of participants this time around.

The four hours got progressively more demanding and challenging.

Here's last session in case you want to check it out.

Let's check out my entries, if you please~

First Hour

The first hour consisted in a series of 5-10 minutes sketches done back to back. Nothing much challenging, it was just about keeping the rhythm and entering the challenge with straight quick sketches.

We started simple enough with Nova. A character I think I never doodled before.

Since I was quite quick on this one, I decided to add-in a bit colors...thing I kept for all the following sketches as well!

Deadpool! A favorite of mine, so I knew exactly how to draw this one without references :P

HEY BUB!!! Wolverine, The best at what he does! Whatever it is that the guy does for a livin'~

'nuff said!

I'll say it right away, I don't like at all how Magneto came out like...


2nd Hour

Hour two was only one big sketch-long. Meaning, a 45 minutes sketch!

Red Sonja. Not much a fan of the character though. The subject was actually featuring her facing a random enemy (or this Death-something guy) or the after-battle.


3rd Hour

HOUR THREE!! 2 25 minutes sketch featuring a group/montage of a selected bunch of characters.

Group shot of a those characters. I went for something kinda JLI-esque.

Same group as before, but this time the montage had to feature a gender switch (I picked Iron Fist) and an age switch (Spider-girl here).


Final Hour

The 4th and last hour of the Live Draw Night! The final challenge of the night! Took me a whole fulll hour and a half.

The goal was to recreate a classic comic book cover - as a tribute - but featuring DCnU "The New 52!" redesigned characters. So I did the only thing I could do...

The famous JLI group shot (original by Kevin Maguire)!

Pretty fun :'3

In the order, from left to right, top to bottom: Godiva, Vixen, Fire, Ice!Tora, Blue Beetle!Jaime Reyes, Booster Gold, August General in Iron, Batman, Green Lantern!Guy Gardner and Rocket Red!

And that is all for this LIVE DRAW NIGHT session~
