Rainbow pencils

This is an old draft from early January that for some reason was abandoned. Fun with rainbow pencils from my sketchbook.

I need to do a big scan again before uni starts back next week.

Let’s Play Video Games!

Its Friday! So you know what that means? FAN ART. Sorry about the iPhone photo, I didn’t feel like getting the scanner out for one picture.

bmo!

I love BMO. Such a cute fun character.
Now I think I’m going to take BMO’s advice and go play some games.

Fan Art Friday!

Is that a thing? Maybe it should be. I guess I should probably draw some more then so I can make it a thing. I could also probably track down some childhood drawings to share as well. I used to always draw my favourite cartoons. It hasn’t changed much.

gir
Gir! Probably one of my favourite characters ever. Why yes I did used to wear Emily the Strange, Paul Frank and rainbow plastic beads all the time when I was younger. I actually went to the mall to shop though.

Jhonen Vasquez has a great style. I’d love to see Johnny the Homicidal Maniac animated (yeah yeah I know I was the stereotypical 90’s/2000’s emo kid).

The watercolours from the next page bled through and that kind of bugs me. I need to stop worrying about this so much. Its just my visual diary, I need to learn to enjoy the little mistakes.

I’m not really a big Pokemon fan. They’re fun to draw though. I also wanted to play with my rainbow pencil.

Lumpy Space Princess is another character I really love. Adventure Time is super rad. I love the colours and stories and how can a cartoon be so sad sometimes? Ice King is always breaking my heart.

As you can see I found a different kind of rainbow pencil. Its got better colours, but its softer so I don’t enjoy drawing with it as much.

Hope you’re all keeping cool. I’m lucky that it doesn’t get too hot in my unit (we don’t have aircon) but I think I might need to have an ice block or two later.

Happy New Year!

Well 2014 is almost over and I’ve finally gotten around to doing some scanning. I have so much I’m not even scanning everything today. I’m not even sure what kind of order or how or what I should share.

I’m not going to do an overview of the year, instead I’m going to share a bunch of skulls because I think besides naked people thats what I made the most art of this year. I pretty much drew the same skull over and over again.

Playing around with watercolour and charcoal.

Pencil was probably my medium of choice for 2014.

I bought some pitt pens a little while ago and they’re pretty much my new favourite thing.

I mean besides drawing skulls. Though this rainbow pencil is pretty cool too.

And sometimes I’m funny. ha. Or I try to be.

Ok thats enough for now. I’ve got to get dressed to go to a New Year’s Eve party.

Drawlloween Week One

I really should be finishing off the last of my assignments and artworks for my folio but instead I’ve been taking part in the Drawlloween challenge on instagram. A lot of people also seem to be doing it as Inktober as well, but since I’ve been enjoying my coloured pencils so much lately I’ve been drawing with them instead.

I’ve even fallen a little behind with Drawlloween, but here enjoy the first weeks worth of pictures that I’ve just scanned up while scanning up some art for a presentation I have due in tomorrow.

Alright I best get back to working on that presentation.

The Return of Tracey’s Thighs

I’m on mid-semester break this week so I treated myself to a life drawing session tonight. And what a treat it was! The model they had lined up had bailed on them, and Tracey (my favourite!) was filled in.

It was the perfect opportunity to play with my new coloured pencils.

Urban Landscapes

Another exercise we were asked to do in our visual diary was some quick urban landscape drawings.

pastellandscape

This is the view from my front living room window. Kind of. None of the buildings are that bright and colourful but they are all cute little terrace houses. I’m still not the master with pastels, but I like the childlike roughness of this anyway. And if you look in the right hand corner of this one you can see Lizzy’s claw marks again. She’s always trying to art.

boardeduphouses

This is my favourite house in my street. It’s all boarded up and was previously a squat. Shortly after I finished this drawing a sign was put up to notify the local residents that it and the abandoned building next door are being knocked down to put up town houses. Sad Face.

Tracey and her Powerful Thighs

I finally made it back to life drawing last night for the first time in weeks. Last night’s model was a woman that I’ve drawn before, she’s probably my favourite model to draw. Tracey has the most amazing powerful thighs and beautiful full figure. I really love the way she holds herself and you can just tell that she loves her body. She’s so much fun to draw.

I also experimented a little with my drawings.

I brought my pastels along and had a play with them.

During the one minute poses I had a bit of fun with blind contour drawing.

This one was done with one continuous line. She looks a little stern, but she really wasn’t.

The rest were drawn fairly much the same as I always do.


The more I draw the more I improve. I need to work on my hands and faces though. Today at uni I was talking to a classmate and she told me of how during high school to practice drawing hands she used to look through magazines and draw every hand she could find. I think I might need to give this a go.
