Kettle on the stove

26 Jan

I’m was thinking of putting a kettle of water on, but didn’t because I thought it would be a good subject for a drawing.

Now I’m going to put some water in and make me some nice tea (or coffee?).

That is all.

Second sketch of the Tri-bot

Second sketch of the Tri-bot. I tried to sketch the big surfaces first, and connect them while looking at the bot.

Now I only need to do this a lot more. After a few weeks I should be ready to draw me some humans as well. Luckily, the ‘bot doesn’t mind to be sketched, but humans (including myself) may want my drawings to resemble their image.

That is all.

Sketching WowWee Tri-bot

Okay, I’m slowly getting into the grove of drawing. The proportions on the bot aren’t fully correct, but the drawing process was good (looking mostly at the toy in the initial stages).

The drawing was done with pencil on paper, in about 30 minutes. That is longest I’ve spent on a single drawing on real paper so far. I had to rub out some parts of the drawing, because I got them completely wrong at the start.

I guess if I start with roughly sketching first, and then building my drawing, I could without the eraser. So that’s my next plan, sketch first, check the rough sketch, then commit to it and finalize the drawing. While doing that, I should look mostly at the subject, and not so much at my own drawing.

Discipline is hard, especially if you have to keep it yourself.
