When I have new sketches to share.

Standing Kate Pose Studies (2002)

Used as studies for page05 in Part Two, where Kate & Mike are reintroduced.

Crown Vic Studies (2002)

These were some initial studies for page06. Up until this point, I'd only really drawn cars directly from photographs, and not in full view, really. But, for the beginning of Part Two, I really needed to learn how to draw cars for real, especially the Ford Crown Victoria, the classic ubiquitous cop car.

Mike & Intersection Studies (2002)

Used as studies for page05 in Part Two, where Kate & Mike are reintroduced.

Kate Expression Studies (2002)

Dug up some screen captures of TV's Laura Prepon, of 'That '70's Show' fame, who proved to be a great expression reference for Kate. Also, a couple of magazine poses in there, too.

More Kate Expression Studies (2002)

More expressions taken from TV screen captures. Actors and actresses make good poses models, actually.

More Posin'

Various Kate Pose Studies (2002)

The final batch of magazine pose studies in this volume. Doing these really powered up my skill at drawing people. I highly recommend doing it, if you can find the time.
