Here's a some life drawings I did last week in a workshop. They are mostly around 6 mins. The workshop was about simplified realisme focused around John Buscema's sketching style.

The first assignment was to copy 2 pages from Tyler Landry one
of Frank Santoro's former students. We copied each panel separately in color pencil. Drawing the color first and then doing the outline.
Later we redrew a page on tracing paper to explore different variations
We then took that page and xeroxed it. Doing that left us with the same page only in graytone values. We then had to recolor it using only one color.
We storyboarded a 4 page story that had to take place in a car.
This assignment was sort of a combination of the 2 previous assignments. We had to storyboard 64 panels on notecards in 3 hours (though spend a little more) it was still fast. This then worked as the first draft of a script. Doing the panels separately made it easier to edit if a panel didn't work and you could move things around as you wanted. Afterward we taped the panel to a from a 8 panel grid and made a template showing the golden means and put it on top. Htis was to show that eventhough composed separately it still fitted into the larger comp.
I then xeroxed the pages and did the pencils on top. These were done in about a day and a half
Here are some ink tests
