Quick sketches

13 Apr

For my daily quick sketches I did an informal appearance on Ustream (pointing the webcam at my drawing pad on my lap). I drew the first 4-minutes sketch in pencil and the second with a felt tip marker.

Succeed through failure?

Succeed through failure?

Originally uploaded by aaipodpics

I set myself up for utter failure. Or did I? Anyway, it felt like I tried so hard to make this sketch fail.

  1. Really big brushes to make rendering finer details practically impossible – CHECK
  2. Crappy copier paper that is bound to wrinkle and tear (which is both did) – CHECK
  3. Little or no experience in a medium, so lack of skills is a sure thing – CHECK
  4. Unlucky number for a day of the month – CHECK

Maybe this is an example that it is so bad that it is actually good. More likely, I was so busy getting things right, I didn’t have time to mess things up.

Warm-up sketch for April 13, 2010

13 Apr

I did another daily recording of my warm-up sketch on my Ustream channel Draw, draw, draw!

I tried 3 sketches: as fast as I could, somewhat slower, and really considering what I drew.
