Darn... too late for the Daily Sketch Forum.

Catergory: Life in the fast lane.

These are a couple sneak peeks of the "Sketches" section that I'm making for my website (

I'm not taking these sketches any further and consider them finished drawings so I figured I'd put them in the Finished Works section.

Actual drawing is 8 inches x 6 inches? I used a black bic pen. C&C is always welcome and appreciated.

...Wow. First one to post! That's great control for a bic pen. Those things always leak for me...:applause:

Chris R - Thanks man! Ask and you'll recieve :)

Looks really good! I like your style. Some color would really make these pop!

very dynamic. I like the first 2 better than the diver :) they have more sense of movement while still keeping the original form. The diver is loosing too much volume and not as dynamic.

nice style :D

It would be a HUGE sin not to post this on the daily sketch forum.

So I am posting them.

Hey thanks Roberto! Very nice of you! I saw that you found the third runner I drew... hehehe.

I'll post it here too then... different style but also a runner.

Hehe, I was surprised to see the pride of our nation sketched in here! Another Greek underdog winning at a sport he wasn't supposed to. Who could forget that finish! BTW your sketches are looking great. Keep up the great work! :thumbsup:

Dennik - Hey thanks Dennik! I'm glad you like them!

Here's another.. this one turned pretty distorted but I like :)
It's inspired by Norway's Gro Espeseth and USA's Mia Hamm in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic soccer semi-finals. Hope you like it

those are hilarious!

i like the 3rd runner. thats a keeper there.

keep it up! id like to see how you would do the vault or the shot-putt.

07 July 2004, 03:18 PM
Hmmm... that's a good idea Big_E.D. Maybe I'll do the shot put next

07 July 2004, 01:05 PM
Whoa! Awesome! My favorite is the swimmer!

07 July 2004, 06:36 PM
Funny drawings! Can't understand how you can do that with a bic pen!? wow.....
