Somewhere, over the rainbow...

...there's apparently a land full of very pretty ladies walking around semi-naked all of the time.

Or, at least, that's what one must assume based on yesterday's Dr. Sketchy's Galway 'Wizard of Oz' themed event!

There was a real buzz in the place yesterday. We had a slightly smaller crowd than normal, I think, but we made lots of noise and the performances were great, with some really fantastic poses to get stuck into.
Personally, I was seriously trying to concentrate more on what I was doing as I was doing it, rather than just draw on auto-pilot. I think I had a small measure of success with that, but I still see a lot of room for improvement in procedure and execution.

For the first time though, I was actually happy with some of the initial quick drawings-
One-minute poses
These were produced with my trusty Pentel Brush Pen. This is definitely the way I plan on doing these 1 and 2-minute poses from now on.

The middle poses, the 10-minute ones, are a tough challenge, I find. They are just long enough that you can try and get something of a likeness going, but it isn't so long that you can really afford to concentrate on any one spot for very long without other sections suffering. This is one I did in this time bracket-

dirty speech balloons removed for public health reasons
And here are the two best pieces of the night-
Shir Madness as the Wicked Witch
Kat Moiselle as Dorothy
Now I just have to wait 27 days for the next Dr. Sketchy's...
