Trying out the iPod Touch again, using the free Justin TV app. It clearly has network problems, which hopefully will be resolved in time. The stuttering of the video is a symptom of packets not arriving in time over the wifi network.
Anyway, the sitting bear sketch went surprisingly well, and quick too. I made a mistake, which I could have prevented by being more methodical. I promise to change my ways and do better in the future.
Thanks for reading and until the next blog post!
So this was going to be a longer drawing session on Justin TV, like the ones I did earlier this year on Ustream. The subject was, not surprisingly, bears.
You can find the recorded videos of this live drawing session on Justin TV and an edited version on YouTube.
This was a kind of “warm-up sketch”, using an illustration from Ken Hultgren’s book “The Art of Animal Drawing.”
Using this photo on Flickr, I drew a Grizzly bear from photo reference.
After trying to understand how foreshortening works on bears, I decided to draw a bear from reference. Although, not a full drawing, just a quick sketch, because I haven’t gone into the details of the animal yet. Getting the big shapes right is what I’m worried with right now, so that’s what I did in this video.
You can watch the video on Justin.tv or YouTube.
Thanks for reading and watching my video and drawing.
Getting the kinks out of my live streaming process, I do a short tutorial on how to draw a bear-like shape. I based it on a tutorial by J.C. Amberlyn, from a Dutch-language book I found for little money in a bookstore.

Here are the drawings I did in the recording.
We had another model than usual, a young boy with a dark skin and a Rastafarian hairdo.
First initial sketch with 2B graphite pencil. Looking good.
Something went wrong while putting charcoal on this boy’s face. I guess I lost concentration again.
