Draw

Image
I got some new drawing pads some time ago this year, and this is the first drawing I've done from one of them. I think I was actually thinking about how I needed to draw more when I drew this. That's why I drew the word "draw," several times. Those drawing pads are cool. That particular one had a certain texture to it. I think it worked out well.

Christopher Hart's Assignment #3, on deviantART

Image
Here's my submission for Christopher Hart's "Assignment #3." For this assignment, he showed us a confident-looking character he drew. He wanted us to draw the character with a worried expression. This is what I came up with. I drew the basic look of the character, but I drew him more in my style. I wanted it to be clear that I was drawing that character as the assignment says to, but try to avoid making it look too much like Christopher Hart's style. I usually draw a more pronounced jaw line, but I kept the original jaw line for this character, as I did with the head shape in the submission I titled "Goofy Face." I figured his eyebrows would be tilted. I thought to add more intensity to it, I'd express his worry through his mouth as well, and I added some sweat to his temple. I think this drawing turned out pretty well. You can see Christopher Hart's journal post, on deviantART, about the assignment here.

Christopher Hart's Assignment Number 2, on deviantART

Image
I just submitted my work for an art assignment from Christopher Hart. You can see the work above. The assignment is at on deviantART, here. Basically, he showed a cartoon face he drew, and he said to redraw it. He told us to make up our own features and expression. I drew a goofy-looking guy with crossed eyes and buck teeth, and kind of a funny hairdo. It's a little like Ed Grimley's slicked up point on the front of his hair. I drew it in more of my own style. This is the second assignment from Christopher Hart, and I think he's doing more of these. I think it's a cool idea.

Hump Day

Previously I mentioned an artwork I did over the weekend, which is a Batman drawing. I was working on the shading. I'm not sure I'm satisfied with it, so I don't know if I want to blog it. That's why I usually don't blog about artworks ahead of time. I might decided I'm not satisfied with the result, and whoever read the blog post, and was interested in seeing the artwork, might not get to see it. I might show it as an outtake at some point, if that. Maybe. Or, I might redraw it and post that. I'll see what happens.

If you haven't checked out Darrel Tank's site, FivePencilMethod.com, I highly recommend it. He has some great techniques for doing amazing drawings. I've been visiting the site and watching the videos, and he really knows his stuff. He's a pro.

I just checked out a cool-looking book from the library. It's titled How to Draw Chiller Monsters, Werewolves, Vampires and Zombies, by J. David Spurlock. I'll be reading that prac…

Draw, Draw, Draw!

I haven't done a lot of drawing lately, which is why I haven't posted much. I intend to get back into drawing big time. I've read that you should draw everyday to keep your skills sharp. So, that's what I plan to do. I haven't been working on the "Ginger" artwork frequently lately, but I think I've more or less got a huge portion of it done. I did a Batman drawing last night and I think it turned out really well so far. My skills are still pretty sharp. I did try to do a couple drawings before it that didn't turn out the way I'd hoped, but this one I think is going good. I'm not finished with it yet, so I won't be posting it in this blog entry. I've got to work on the shading. In the meantime, here's a journal entry I posted on my deviantART page. It's about a fellow deviant on there named KyaValentine. I recommend checking out her page. She's got some cool stuff on there.

New Look for My Blog

I just changed the look for my blog. I decided I wanted something different. I don't think I want to change the look too often because I think a familiar look helps make my blog more recognizable. My blog has gone through many different designs. I like to think of it as sort of like the TARDIS interior on Doctor Who. It changes occasionally. I think this newest design looks cool, and I might stick with it for awhile.

Happy Fourth of July!

I decided to put my blog on hiatus this week. I haven't had anything to post. However, I figured I ought to post something for the Fourth of July. Above is one of my artworks for Terribly's 30 DAY DRAWING/ART CHALLENGE on deviantART. This is the first time I've blogged it. I got busy with other things before I finished the challenge, so there are some artworks I didn't blog. I hope everyone has a great, and safe, Fourth, even if you're not in or from this country. Happy Fourth of July! (Terribly. FYI, this is the citation, not part of that sentence.)
