Virtual Dr. Sketchys

26 Sep

I attended a virtual Dr. Sketchy’s last night in Second Life (hosted by Tart Gallery). This is one of my sketches (I have to admit I’m a bit rusty in figure drawing so I know this could use some work). It was fun and challenging. They gave people 10 minutes per pose so I sketched this out last night then spent an hour and a half inking it with ball point pen. One of the biggest challenges is that the physics in Second Life are kind of wonky, so things don’t lay as they naturally would. The avatars have textures on them and that doesn’t always match up with the lighting. Considering it was done with basically video game characters it was pretty good though. And there was a great music stream being played, and other cool artists participating. If it works out with my schedule I hope to do it again.
