Sketch dump

Here's a quick portrait I did of Mick Aston, Time Team archeologist, who died yesterday. I love Time Team, such a shame it was cancelled, and also a shame that he died so relatively young. Time Team is one of those shows that teaches a lot without requiring massive concentration (perfect for those times it's on tv when I have to cook dinner at the same time =P) and I've always found the archeology very interesting, although I admit I first started watching because of Victor Ambrus' truly gorgeous illustrations (also a crying shame that those were dropped in the final couple of seasons). 

Photoshop CS6 with a Wacom Intuos 3, about an hour and a half.
This was a good opportunity to try out whiskers in this lasso-and-shade style. 

And here are some recent pages from my sketchbook:

A very quick sketch (15 minutes) of Queen Victoria in her wedding dress, from an 1847 portrait by Franz Winterhalter:

A sketch inspired by a mother and daughter I saw queuing for Japanese:

And a couple of kids that were at my cousin's baby shower:

All of those are 0.5 #B mechanical pencil in a Moleskine Skethbook.
