I love realism. This is the art type I want to work the most in. I’ve been practising by drawing random things lately. I asked friends to suggest me any object so that I could practise with it. This motivates me more in a way. I think it’s nice when it’s someone else’s idea. It makes me want to finish earlier and better so I can show them and get their personal opinion on their own suggestions.
The first suggestion I got was a shoe. I chose a kind of classic style one. I wanted to practise many objects, and therefore I chose to make the drawings a bit small.
The second drawing suggestion i had was a katana. The details I wanted for this turned out to be a bit difficult to illustrate. That is mostly because the drawing is only around 6cm*8cm.
I really liked making these small practise drawings. I’m planning on doing a lot more too. Maybe I’ll even create my own little collection. I’d love to hear more suggestions from anyone here too.
Thanks for reading :3
Lately I’ve been drawing more animals. I’ve practices both traditionally and digitally. I also worked on illustrating new textures.
The first piece I made was of an octopus. I chose to draw a tentacle. This was made digitally on a phone app. I’m very happy with how I managed to blend the colors and get my idea to life the best way possible. It’s easier to get a cleaner look when it’s digitally.
The second drawing I made was of a lynx. I made this traditionally on paper. I’m more used to drawing on paper and therefore I often enjoy that more. I’ve never drawn fur before so that was a challenge. I’m planning to draw more animals in the future to practice new textures like this.
This is a coloring-pencil illustration I made. I only used 1 color for this sketch. The original color was green. I used photo editing to change the color saturation, I then acquired the desired color. I chose the color blue because it sustained a more appropriate fitting for the theme. I took the picture while consciously choosing the lighting effect. I think it all came together well as a piece of art.
Here I practised some different anime mouths. Anime expressions are known to be over-dramatic and exaggerated.
This is a posture-sketch of a japanese school girl outfit from behind. On the top I did Chinese calligraphy.
Here’s a smol grill from a post it note:D
I drew this with coloring pencils in 2018. It feels so long ago hehe. Happy New year:D
This is the beginning of my Hitler portrait. I start by getting the proportions right. This is one of the most important steps in portrait drawing.
Here I start adding more contrast. I get darker colors by using softer pencils. I layer the color instead of drawing too hard.
These pencils are high quality and works for many types of drawing. My most used pencil is the HB. This is the most basic pencil in here and it works good for most things. Though when I started to add shadowing I went more over to 6B.
Here we see that I added the darkest colors too early and that made it more difficult to blend it with the softer lighter shadows.
When the portrait was done I was very satisfied with the realism. In my opinion it is not hard spotting the person who is drawn. I’ll have to choose this as my best drawn portrait til now. You might find the choice of person to draw very odd, but it was all part of a school project so don’t worry ;P
This ink drawing was done on a kind of yellowish toned paper. I believe that is fitted for the look I’m going for. I find it very satisfying to do inking, and the end result is something I’m happy about.
I started this one a long time ago. Too often I don’t finish, but I decided to do a post anyway. Especially because it’s summer and this was associated with water.
My watercolor book is from “Grieg Design” It was around 5$, but the quality and number of papers have a higher value in my opinion. I’m very happy with it.
I used this watercolor palette from “Alf Bjercke” Not the cheapest option, but the colors have good quality and are highly pigmented. It has lasted a long time, but it’s expected from the price.
Then where I landed off was inking. “Uchida Yoko” is a Japanese brand with good quality. It’s highly pigmented, acid free, non-toxic, lightfast, photo safe and most importantly water-proof. It’s also rather cheap and long lasting. I use the 0.05 for most drawings. Especially when there is a lot of details.
A quick drawing of children eyes.
This is one of the funniest shows I’ve ever watched. I’ve loved the show for years and watched all 21 seasons. On my blog I’ve posted drawings of other shows that i love, but South Park has to be my favorite one. I have drawn other drawings of South Park people like Kenny, and he’s my favorite character. I know that in one of the earlier season’s they were planning on removing Kenny. Im so glad they didn’t.
Here I’ve painted the main characters with watercolor, and I’ve inked with 0.05 fineliner. I use a Japanese brand called “UCHIDA YOKO CO.,LTD”. I really enjoy this brand cause it’s acid free, non-toxic. Lightfast, waterproof and photo safe. For other areas I’ve used a 0.5 fineliner that is fade proof. This pen isn’t as good as the thinner one, but it’s much cheaper. Most of the writing on the pen has faded (it’s supposed to be fade proof haha.) So I dont know the brand.
