Sketches: Rest of Undefined Variables

Undefined Variables, the book

This is the last batch of sketches from a sketchbook I carried with me (theme: Undefined Variables).

I’ve got two more tiny leather-bound sketchbooks like these but I may take a break from this style of book for a bit. I’ll pick it up again when I think of another programming concept that I can translate into a sketch style.

I also need to get the proper pen(s) again. I’ve been using the “soft” variant pen for these last ones for a change, and it’s much more like a brush pen. This paper is heavily textured which makes the soft nib catch more easily.

Sketches: More Undefined Variables

Just scanned a bunch of the sketches from the little notebook I carry with me (theme: Undefined Variables). Much like my first notebook (Object Oriented) I started running out of ink at about the 3/4 mark, right near the end of these. I remembered that a drying-out brush pen is still pretty useful for shading, so now I’m carrying both it and a fresh one.

Next batch of the sketches in the Undefined Variables sketchbook I carry around. Enjoy!

It's not easy to get into the semi-sized tow trucks.

Cafe Legato

Just one crayon, left outside.

Stray crayon

I have no idea where that rabbit came from (or went).

Easter at home

Good spot to duck away from conferences at Moscone too.

Samovar

Sending off the orange seats at Candlestick.

"Paper" bags = insulated drink koozies.

55 South

Not sure what game that was. Maybe a Magic variant?

PAX Prime

Got some good use out of my bag from Headknife! Good size for a Nintendo 3DS.

SeaTac

Yep, that's a Buster Posey bobblehead.

Kensington Circus

I don't draw cars very often. Oops.

Sketches: Undefined Variables

I have this little book with me whenever I go out. At the time of posting this, I'm close to halfway done.

Undefined Variables, the book

This is the latest little sketchbook I’m carrying around for the occasional moment to draw. The theme of the last one was Object Oriented, and it was a little brown book with sketches of objects drawn in brown ink. For this little black book I wanted a different theme, ideally playing off of another computer science term. Hence: Undefined Variables.

I’m trying out a more elaborate ruleset on this one. I didn’t really know whether it was working until I’d gotten four or five of these done. The ruleset is this:

1. Draw a scene of the objects in front of me and pick one object to cut out, leaving only the outline of the space where it would be.
2. Instead of drawing the true background, fill it with a nearby pattern.

Here’s the first quarter or so of the book.

Zach's sippy cup, and a very strange children's book.

Backyard

Shhhhh.

SJ Singlebarrel

These chairs are like miniature couches.

AMC Saratoga

Pro tip: don't buy a kid's bike from a guy on the street.

SOFA district

Always a good time with Ted & Claire!

Parker, CO

Denver of the variable weather, and tons of craft beer.

Celebrating Lulu's bachelorette party in style.

Napa

Think I've had enough time on the lawn. It's seats all the way now!

Shoreline Amphitheatre

Dan Savage is super nice in person, as you may have guessed.

Hancock Building

Go here. This place, and the ACME Hotel it's in, are very cool.

Berkshire Room

Universal remote? Naah.

Daly City, CA

There would probably be more Chromatic drawings in here if I weren't trying to actively change these up.

Chromatic Coffee

Slo-mo flames are pretty relaxing to watch.

Inktober week 4: George

Inktober is done, and here’s the last batch of sketches: this time it’s George, age 76. Some of these expressions are very suitable for Halloween! [also see previous Inktober sketches ]

It’s been a fun exercise, though I like having these as pick-up projects rather than forcing a daily schedule. I’ll keep doing this and posting batches as they are ready. It’ll be a good project to have on hand if I’m more in the mood to draw people rather than my current object-sketching project, Undefined Variables.

Yeah, I'm not that thrilled with the straight-ahead shots either

Waiting

Amused, in that slightly self-conscious way

Amused

I imagine him reacting to hearing someone else telling a story here

Cringing

The word that comes to mind here is "egad!"

Aghast

A bit unsure, but thinking it over

Contemplative

Boo!

Startled

I'd be wincing too if someone drew my head this funny. Sorry about that
