Bloody exhausted today at work, but picked up Loomi's Fun With a Pencil and proceeded to sketch, good way to relax.

About 45-50 mins at the british museum. Form studies.

Practicing on one of my tiny toys, trying out using observation + construction. A bit fail here :D

25th August 2010

Was told that Loomis is another great way to learn how to draw, and am currently reading up there. Had no time to do more today though; worked through lunch and  past 9pm today.

This is my excuse for today's practice :P

23rd August 2010

Life drawing class this evening, not sure why but I'm in like a very good mood today. Most likely because I was very satisfied by the progress at work today :)

15th August 2010

After yesterday's epic long draw, here with have... about 20 minutes worth of attempting to draw critter head :D

Saturday, August 14, 2010

14th August 2010

At the V&A Museum today. Couldn't focus enough to do the head :(


13th August 2010

Form studies at the british musem today. Proportions are.... wildly off.

12th August 2010

Lunchtime form studies with a block of modelling clay; experimenting with blending acrylic at home, and out at the british museum for a bit more form studies.


Wednesday, August 11, 2010

11th August 2010

Spent time at work using a lump of clay to figure out form, and spent some time learning how to blend acrylics. I bought acrylic paper and acrylic retarder today! Woo!

10th August 2010

I think one area I suck at is creating form. I'm now just trying to create form using simple objects (in this case, a blob of modelling clay), with the hopes of being able to represent the more complicated objects better.

9th August 2010

Life drawing lesson today.... somehow the last few weeks I feel I'm losing my touch. Maybe I'm overworking myself. In any case, the long draw of 50 mins today I messed up the first 20 doing all sorts of measuring and just not feeling it. Last half hour came up, I said screw it, rubbed it all out, and redrew from scratch using gesture followed by spherical forms. Quick shading. No time for the head or fixing the extremities :(

Form studies at the british museum.

Now I'm using a Faber-Castel TK-Fine 0.5mm 2B. Almost wanted to buy a Pentel Graphgear 1000 but at £12.95 vs £2.95? Easy choice.....

Two sketches today should be good enough :) One during lunch break, one at home.

Still dealing with stupid software issues, and really no mood to practice. Only wanna sleep...
