This week I put more effort into the sketches for this time. I spent more time on these so I only have three to show for this week. The drawings this week are things I wanted to do a serious illustration of but I didn’t find the time to do it.
The first sketch (above) was inspired by a conversation about morality I had some years back. In simple terms, we discussed “moral gray areas” and the view of things being black and white. I wanted to (and still may) do a piece that says absolute moral rights and wrongs do exist. Sometimes we are involved in situations that make doing the right thing complicated.
The second sketch (left) is one I used my acrylic inks on. The portrait is of a good friend of mine who I have been wanting to draw for awhile. I used green because that is her favorite color.
P.S She’s my unofficial writing coach too.
The third sketch (right) is an idea I wanted to do from the time one of my all time favorite rappers Dre Murray released his last solo album titled Gold Rush: Maybe One Day The sketch was inspired by a track called Rameses the Great where the featured artist Propaganda does a spoken word piece about the futility of spending your whole life only focused on acquiring more riches.
