This is definitely happening. I got this sketchbook from a friend here in Japan who remains to be unnamed. She challenged me to do this BIG BADASS SKETCHBOOK CHALLENGE which is simply the SKETCHBOOK SLAM CHALLENGE (#sketchbookslam) that has a lot of the artists on all forms of social media going.  Basically, its a challenge to fill this 600 page 8×10 sketchbook in one month. I see a lot of the finished sketchbook tours on youtube, instagram and facebook and I thought “WOW!” is that actually possible?

The Man of Steel

The Sketchtember theme today was COMIC BOOK HERO so who is the quintessential hero? SUPERMAN. I decided it because I just want to draw some classic superhero and really concentrate on how I can render it.  And Lo and behold, I could actually draw the classic Reeves Superman!

You can see the speedpaint process below to see how I drew this classic Man of Steel! I used the bargue process of using general huge shapes first and filling it in, its been working pretty well for me, but I guess– MORE HOURS and More Practice. PLUS, I  do think that I need to start rendering out bigger and completed works than sketches.  So Up , up and AWAY!!
