Mister Snugglepuss

16 May

This was an exercise in inking. The idea was to ink several line widths in this cat with a pencil brush.

Drawing the human head, part 4

16 May

Although I know this head isn’t entirely correct, I should push on, and revisit the profile sketch later on. No time spilt by the wicked, so why should I?

That is all.

My new running shoes

16 May

I had to buy new running shoes, because the previous ones were too tight and were giving me pain. I settled on asics GT-2140.

The drawing was made with HB wood pencil in roughly 20 minutes.

That is all.

Drawing Unknown Faces, part 149

16 May

I had to go somewhere, but I didn’t want to leave without at least one “unknown face” in the can for today. It is based on a black and white photo in a free newspaper. Therefore, I included some of the background in the drawing too.

Now I have to change and go.

That is all.

Drawing the human head, part 3

16 May

So I decided to revisit Christopher Hart’s book about drawing human anatomy. He at least has some valuable text and images about how to draw the human head from imagination.

Here is the schematic drawing I made today.

Compare that with the drawing I made on April 20.

And you’ll see that there is some difference in craftsmanship. The poor craftsmanship of the earlier drawing was a reason to throw the towel in and go to the more well rounded book by Bridgman.

I guess I need to continue in this chapter, and see where it brings me.

That is all.
