Doing studies of skateboarders is great because you get to study…

  • Dynamic poses
  • The figure in relation to the ground plane
  • Shadows
  • Fashion/Clothing/Wrinkles

The lighting of skateboard photography is also usually bright and visible with defined shadows. Note to fellow Irish residents: Apparently other countries have this big hot yellow orb that hangs over them emitting a strong light.

After two minute sketches, I revisited each, inking and colouring them to various levels of finish.
