Well, tonight's sketch is more of a work in progress plus a doodle. Scott Purdy gave me some tips and they've really helped me push it. It needs a bit of work yet but going to set fresh eyes on it tomorrow night.

Any crits or comments would be welcome.

Day 2. A lame effort to be frank, another busy day filled with applications. Couple of sea horses drawn in biro without removing the pen from the page. I like seahorses I do, could add something funky to a dragon :)

Fun and games!

First daily sketch!

Well, here is the first sketch. Sorry it's nothing exciting but it's been a long day! No wonder I sucked as an animator, look at that pencil mileage!

Just an iguana done in biro on some random sketchbook I found in a cupboard. Looking do draw dragons so I guess i'd better find out what makes up reptiles!

Hello Interwebs!

Hey :)

Rowena Aitken - Illustrator here.

This blog is going to be jam packed full of my daily sketches. This is so I will definately sketch every day AND so that you can see the inner workings of my mind, you lucky lucky people!

The sketchblog will start next week (Monday 26th October 2009) which should give me enough time to make the blog page look nice and get my geriatric scanner working with Vista.

That means real sketches people, I can draw in real life and not just with a Wacom :) There may be some photoshoppery but definately trying to push the ol' sketchbook back into my thoughts.

Well, that was a nice little intro; better get to jazzing this thing up and I will see you all on Monday!

For more fun I am available at the following locations :D


Hope to see you around :F
