Warm-up sketch for April 20, 2010

20 Apr

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

Third attempt at getting this pose of a kitten right. I took it slow and considerate, but still got it wrong. Ah well, there’s always a next time, and practice makes perfect.

Warm-up sketch for April 19, 2010

19 Apr

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

This is my second attempt of drawing an Abyssinian cat called Denise van Outhuizen as a kitten. The is better than what I had yesterday, but still very different from the photo.

Warm-up sketch for April 18, 2010

18 Apr

It amazes me each time that if you keep trying to improve, even your not so good sketches start to become better. This kitten was my first breeding cat. She was also very close and trusting to humans. Not so much buddy-buddy with other cats, though, unless they were kittens (she always tried to grab suckling kittens from her daughter, while she had no litter of her own, and therefore no milk).

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

I tried to make this a somewhat more elaborate sketch than usual. I hope you like it.

Marble Babies designs

15 Apr

I tried some design sketches for a personal project I’m working on. The sketches themselves have nothing to do with the design, but are just to get some inspiration, and to discover how things work.

I also recorded some live streaming video of the drawing.

Warm-up sketch for April 15, 2010

15 Apr

I did another daily recording of my warm-up sketch, this time on my Livestream channel Draw, draw, draw! (Ustream was unavailable when I wanted to record).

This time two quick loose sketches, which didn’t turn out like I wanted. The first was really loose and off-model, the second was more deliberate, but lifeless.

I have to do more practice on this “loose drawing” thing, because I’m really bad at it.


P.S. I’ve looked what I did earlier this week, and today’s sketches really were much better. I guess it was the “never good enough” attitude which got me. It often pays to go back to earlier sketches and check if you indeed improved as an artist.


Warm-up sketch for April 14, 2010

14 Apr

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

This time a constructed drawing on my cinnamon Abyssinian kitten. Something went wrong, but that’s alright for a warm-up sketch. Next time I hope to avoid that mistake (clue: the muzzle is not in correct perspective; it’s not on a circle, though the base of the muzzle is).
