Sketching at the Montreal International Game Show

I got an invite Monday night from Anthony and Daniel at Syn Studio to come sketch at the Montreal Int. Game Show.  I was drawing the models being body painted by makeup artist Lisa-Marie Charron before they went up to pose for the audience.

Up on the main stage stage digital artists and matte painters painted on laptops projected on the big screen. Other industry pros, students and people from the audience were invited to step up to an easel and join in.

DJ Slim was on hand, providing us a mix of epic soundtrack and 8 bit video game tunes. Sketching with pounding music can become an interactive thing. I find myself making brush marks with the beat.

Sketches were done with Private Reserve inks washed with clear water. (Same approach as these life drawing poses). Sorry no close-up scans, gave the drawings away to the models, Pascale, Karsten and Phylactere.
