I think I’ll lay off the full color for a while, until I really have time to practice it. This drawing might have looked a lot better if I’d done it black and white, though the idea relies on some reflected light, so some shading was necessary. Anyway, not too happy with it, but it was an exercise, yeah?
Here’s yesterday’s drawing. I realized how much I take my “studio” for granted. It’s never gotten much steady use before, but I missed it last night. I started this at the the office after work and finished it in my parents’ dining room. Each pleasant places in different ways, but it was definitely more difficult to challenge myself with the drawing since It felt like I was doing it between other things, instead of in it’s own time.
(P.S. Snapped the picture and posted this from my new iPhone!)
I finally went to The Drawing Club tonight. The theme was Hard Boiled. I want to start going regularly, and there’s another figure drawing session Mondays and Wednesdays I may start going to again. Between the two, I think I’m pretty much set for live models.
P.S. I’ll scan these in later. Right now my scanner’s out of ink T_T
Daily Challenge 002
Second day doing the daily challenge drawings. Yesterday was just getting the ball rolling. Today I feel like I learned something. Next time I’ll look at it scaled down or from a distance. The value here gets muddied, and you can’t even tell it’s a dog, let alone a manic dog.
Inspired by this thread (which I haven’t even read through yet), I’ve started a daily challenge, which I’ll continue for at least a month, and then we’ll see how it goes. A drawing a day. Either here or on my deviantart page.
