February’s Sketchbook

Another installment of my sketchbook’s from the last month. (This will be a monthly post!!) I’ve noticed I draw alot of eyes, lips and hearts for some strange reason. Why I’m not exactly sure. The above piece was a shading and learning curve. In a simple pencil. By the way, if anyone has any artistic advice please don’t be afraid to share in the comments! Or even even some lovely active artistic blogs would be fantastic.

This was drawn a while back but I actually love it. It was my first colour test of an eye. However I had altered the shape alot. Really chuffed with the colour and how the skin tone worked oit rather nicely. I had done loads of manga drawing so that will most likely be an influence. 

Another older piece that makes me happy every time I see it. Loved playing the the shape and colours. First time I actually used a white pencil in my work that I wantes to make noticeable!!! 

This was a 15 minute facial sketch………boy do I have a long way to go!! Still need to work on placement, size and the proportions but I do feel like I’ve made great progress!!

This is an on going banner piece. I see loads of stunning banners everywhere. So I thought I would give it a try myself, turns out to be a tad stressful. I still don’t think its lined up right but great practice. I do like the flower detail but plan on adding text and more petal details. 

Yet another lip study. This one just a little larger in orange. So far I like the detail and the shading on the upper lip. (I HATE DRAWING TEETH!!!) I may just keep it as an unfinished piece. Not to sure yet. 

Yet another eye study but this one is a tad more realistic. I changed the shape slighty and can again see great development. However the eyebrow……..I have no idea what happened. 

I was basically playing about with lines and this happened. A skirt and leg placement. Gonna need to work on that knee though. Everything else looks good but it looks odd.

These 2 pics. (One above and below.) These where just pieces I was doing to use up leftover acrylic paint. First time I used this techinque………I love it!! They look like dandelion’s! Feel like I’m defo gonna have to explore this one more. But I do feel sorry for my poor brush. (It had a good wash after and a well deserved rest.)

It’s green!! I finished my first large arcylic painting. A simplified gemstone piece. I used 2 different shades of green and added white to lighten it up. I don’t think I have an even coverage but it turned out so much better than what I expected. The black outline is black biro pen. Love the effect and combo.

Until next time my lovelies.

Xx
