lance_inkwell 24 of 365 /2015. This is a blind contour drawing I did of a Batman statue I have. For those who don't know, a blind contour drawing is a drawing where the artist looks at something and draws it without looking at the paper. It's a fun challenge and is a practice I plan to do more often. #sketchbook2015 #sketchaday #drawingaday #draw365 #batman #blindcontourdrawing #blindcontour 20h
  •   hannnahlucia Blind contour drawing is seriously so hard. This is way good 20h
  •   lance_inkwell @hannnahlucia thank you! I couldn't believe how hard and frustrating this practice could be. 20h
  •   hannnahlucia Yeah it's super hard. I had to do in an art class I took a few years ago, and we had to do portraits of each other. Mine came out awful! I wish I had the patience to get really good at it! 19h
  •   nicolehtx @lance_inkwell I've done this before and it's crazy. This is a legit ass bat man, you got skills 19h
  •   vcolt Wow!! That's awesome!! 16h
  •   alg.ebra Haha love to do this. This one is good! 10h

lance_inkwell 22 of 365 /2015. This is what I think of your fancy sticky notes! Over 20 sticky note sketches and 1 photo of Bigfoot were used to make this full length feature film! Quality time well wasted! Ladies and gentleman, I give you "The Cat-amorphosis". sketchbook2015 #sketchaday #drawingaday #draw365 #animation #stickynotes #cartoon #timelaps #diyanimation #academyaward #catamorphosis #catsofinstagram #flipbook 3d

lance_inkwell 20 of 365 /2015. Had fun practicing head construction and learning more about framework for correct perspective by copying these happy critters from Preston Blair's "Animation". #sketchbook2015 #sketchaday #drawingaday #draw365 #prestonblair #animation #cartooning #headconstruction #cartoon 5d
  •   molly.anne.maloney Cute! 5d
  •   lance_inkwell @bannedinsf yeah, there are a ton of artist who have taken images directly from Blair's book. I don't mind if they give credit, but it bothers me when people use these images and try to act like they are originals. I'm not say Kozik did that, but others do all the time. 5d
  •   lance_inkwell @shinganist thank you! 5d
  •   lance_inkwell @brg716 my best advice is to get him in lessons, but don't push him. The second he sees the lessons as work and not fun, he will give up on drawing. In my opinion, everybody is a really good artist, most just gave up practicing too early because they started to view it as work and not fun. To me, it's just fun, and that's all it is. 5d
  •   bannedinsf Kozik kind of did but I think most people know his thing is using fair use imagery, like crap hounf does 5d
  •   lance_inkwell @molly.anne.maloney thank you! I miss you! 5d
  •   alg.ebra love this!! And totally agree about keeping it fun and not viewing it as work. That's why I stopped art school! 5d
  •   brg716 You are sooo right! Thank you for that! I definitely want it to be fun for him! 5d

lance_inkwell 19 of 365 /2015. Probably not the most exciting sketch to share, but I decide today that I'm going to go through the best instructional guide for animation in my opinion- "Animation" by Preston Blair, and redraw every page to help bring my cartoon and animation skills to the next level. For the next week or so my daily sketches will be copies from this book. #sketchbook2015 #sketchaday #drawingaday #draw375 #animation #prestonblair #constructionofthehead #framework #colerase #bringbackclassicanimation 6d

  •   lance_inkwell @yatfung.yeung thanks, I will! 7d
  •   lance_inkwell @dropdeaddamndame thank you very much! 7d
  •   moon_belle nice! 7d
  •   lance_inkwell @moon_belle thank you! 7d
  •   moon_belle does it take a lot to figure out what you'll draw next? 7d
  •   lance_inkwell @moon_belle no, not really. The world is full of things to draw, regardless to what style I choose to draw those things in. Today I felt like doing a still life, but tomorrow those very same bottles might get turned into cartoons with faces. It all just depends on where my head is. For sketches I usually just draw the first thing that comes to mind. Thanks for asking! 7d
  •   moon_belle so true! now I'll be left wondering how those bottles would look like as cartoons with faces, ha I'm a fan of your cartoons but very impressed of your still life work as well. 7d
  •   lance_inkwell @moon_belle thank you. I appreciate your comments! 7d

lance_inkwell 16 of 365 /2015. I took a break from a big project to bust out today's sketch. From now on my cartoon self portraits will include my gnarly mountain man beard. #sketchbook2015 #sketchaday #drawingaday #draw365 #copicmarkers #notimeforsleep #hourofthewolf #coffee #blackblood #getwoundup #blackbloodtransfusion 1w

lance_inkwell 15 of 365 /2015. This is probably breaking the rules and point of doing a daily sketch, but this project is a big priority for me and I have no time to sketch right now, so this clip is my sketch for today. #sketchbook2015 #sketchaday #drawingaday #draw365 #crosshatch #penandink #timelaps 1w

lance_inkwell 14 of 365 /2015. I have been working on an awesome project all day and have had no time to do a daily sketch, so this close up sneak peek is my sketch for today. This is all brush work with a Winsor & Newton Series 7, size 1 brush. #sketchbook2015 #sketchaday #drawingaday #draw365 #sketchbook #inkwork #brushwork #wip #inker #inking 2w

lance_inkwell 13 of 365 /2015. Very rough RFTC sketch with markers for an idea I plan to do with brushes in greater detail. For those of you who don't know what RFTC is, look them up, but be cautious, the heavy sound will save you! #rftc #rocketfromthecrypt #sketchbook #sketchbook2015 #sketchaday #drawingaday #draw365 #copicsketch #wip 2w

lance_inkwell All you need to turn your garage into a total gym is a dirty mirror, a ladder, a hatchet, and a bunch of poisonous chemicals on a shelf....oh and weight lifting stuff. #totalgym #weightlifting #scrawnybeefcake #buffalohair #workout #inspirational #nopainnogain #flexrayvision #powerlifting 2w

lance_inkwell 11 of 365/ 2015. Today is Beard day in the gym so I sketched this for inspiration and to see what I might look like in the future if I keep lifting with my beard. #doesyourbeardevenliftbro #sketchbook #sketchaday #drawingaday #draw365 #sketchbook2015 #workout #lifting #strengthtraining #weightlifting 2w

lance_inkwell Within the next decade, wild tigers will go extinct, people will talk about it on social network platforms for a couple weeks, then some new viral event will take over and wild tigers will become that of myth and legend....forever. I know that 99.9% of all the species that every existed on this planet are now extinct, but if you ask me, there has got to be a flaw in natural selection if creatures as amazing as tigers bite the dust at the hands of mankind. It's late, I can't sleep or draw well, so I'm just going to keep scribbling tigers, wild tigers, and think about how I will miss them so when they are gone. #tigers #coolestcreatureever #wildtiger #savethetigers #sketchbook #scribble #thetigershavespoken #wild 2w

lance_inkwell 10 of 365/ 2015. Here is another rough sketch of a cartoon that needs a caption. I have a few ideas, but just want to see what other people come up with! If anybody comes up with a good caption, I'll beg you to let me use it, and I'll give you credit with the final version. Note- the caption doesn't necessarily have to be funny for this one. #sketchbook2015 #sketchbook #sketchaday #drawingaday #draw365 #cartoon #funnies #funny #comic #lanceinkwell #caption #death #grimreaper 2w

lance_inkwell HELP WITH CAPTION! This is a rough sketch for a cartoon funny I'm working on. I have a few captions in mind for it, but thought it would be fun to see what others can come up with. If anybody comes up with a caption that's too funny to not use, I'll beg you to let me use it, and I'll give you credit when I put out the final version. Go wild with it! #cartoon #funny #caption #sketch #copicsketch #lanceinkwell #wip #funnies #funeral #characterdesign 2w

lance_inkwell I usually don't draw political stuff, but being a person who loves drawing cartoons, I felt the need to draw one in regards to the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo. Just so people know, I understand that not all Muslims are terrorist, so please don't take offense to this cartoon... unless you are a terrorist. If you can't take a joke, but you can take a life, then you deserve to be made fun of....forever. Love in the face Hate, Laugh in the face of Terror! 9 of 365/ 2015 #jesuischarlie #iamcharlie #charliehebdo #sketchaday #drawingaday #sketchbook2015 #lanceinkwell #cartoon #notworthkillingover #noussommestouscharlie #NousSommesCharlie 2w
