Unbuttoned – Time for a warm up!

July 28, 2014 in Christian Grey, Colored Pencils, Sketch, Sketchbook

Gosh, it feels like the last update has been AGES ago!
Well, I’m back now – with a ton of ideas and some nice new illustrations! :D

Please note that I’m only referring to the books and draw the characters how I imagine them.
But I will draw E.L. James, Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson and all the others of the cast though, in another little project.

Currently I’m working on an illustration of Christian as a little warm up. It features a piece of clothing which became quite liked: his jeans!
So imagine (your favorite) Christian entering the room in a playful mood, closing the door behind him. What do you think about it? Write it in the comments, if you’d like.

Have a look at the progress so far:

Study: Wet, wet, wet!

May 14, 2013 in Christian Grey, Copic, Sketch, Sketchbook

Welcome to the wonderful world of Christian Grey’s anatomy! :D

Another sketch done with Copic Markers. I think it was after a shower scene in book two (I don’t remember it well), I thought about Christian’s body and wanted to draw a study of him, to get a feeling for the shapes.
I’ve got a big sketchbook titled “The Book Of Shades”, in which I want to draw all those studies and sketches and this is the very first sketch I drew in it.

As always, I started with some rough outlines and light colors:

The paper in that sketchbook is quite thick and drawing on it with Copics is fun. Although it might be a  bit expensive, because of the color drain. But anyway, I went on with drawing some shadows to define the muscles. Christan Grey’s body is described as quite muscular, I hope I’ve done him justice.

I added the base hair color, darkened the shadows and added a little bit of facial hair in the next step:

After that I added more layers of skin tones, blended the shadows to make them look smoother and drew the hair:

To give that pose (slightly a bit of) a sense I added some water falling onto Christian.
To be honest I didn’t think about where his right arm is or what it looks like. What is he doing there??! Is he touching himself?! :o

ASGDLFGLRDLAS..!! I didn’t notice that until someone asked me about it (thanks for that, mate..!).. LOL
Well, I didn’t mean to make it look like this, it just happened! Ha ha! :D

But maybe it shows him right after all the trouble in book 3, taking finally a shower, washing all worries away..?
He looks ok, I think. What’s your opinion..?
