Been hanging out with my friend for the past week which should explain my absence on this blog. It's nice to get a break. Anyway, I drew her but it didn't really hold any likeness. So I will be trying again!
Just a stress release sketch. Originally I wrote "see you in hell" on the side but my handwriting is very embarrassing so I erased it. My last final is tomorrow and I have been feeling the pressure. After they are over I am going on holiday for a bit with one of my mates. Should be a nice break from all of the academic work.
I am going to have to work really hard over the summer on backgrounds. It's really far behind the rest of my skills and it's becoming painfully obvious. Anyway, here's a sort of street design. I had a lot of fun doing it.
I've tried countless times to draw Podolski but haven't been able to get it right until now. Anyway, sorry for the spam of football sketches. It's been nice to get back to practicing and sketching like I did last summer.
This was really fun to draw. I still have a hard time getting Schweinsteigers features right, even after drawing him several time. For some reason my scanner has been scanning my penciled work wrong and I have yet to figure out how to fix it in photoshop. The actual sketch is much softer.
I am getting really serious about drawing every day. It really brings up my mood, especially when it's something I feel confident and familiar in such as football players. Anyway, gotta love Per! Expect some more German football players coming your way.
I've decided in order to get through the next couple of weeks (finals) I am just going to be finishing or redoing drawings that I've never gotten around to doing. It's a way for me to combat not having any inspiration as of late. Anyway, I thought it might be fun to show the sketch, the inks and then finally the finished colours. Now some of you might see what I mean when I say I liked the sketch more than the finished work haha.
I am now officially nineteen, and now a blond! I want to wear my new age proudly. This past year has been a lot of things, but definitely productive. I am extremely happy I have this blog to keep track of my progress and keep going. I've got the whole world to conquer!
Something I got the idea for earlier today in class. I'm decently happy with how the sketch came out. I had to redo the hand several times but decided on something fairly simplistic. I might colour this later.
I've been drawing with coloured pens again recently. There's nothing really to say, my art productivity is still really static. I need to find something inspiring or something but it's hard when there's so much stressful things going on.
