27th September 2010

I don't know why, but I think I'm on a win today. I guess it's due to finally getting rested up.

First up: did this whilst I got my system upgraded.

And some stuff from today's life drawing class:

Seeing some slight improvement here :)

24th September 2011

Today at the brit museum. I think I'm slowing down. While I'm still doing my practice a day, I'm no longer spending the entire evening at the british museum, only staying to do one sketch, then heading off. It's not like I have a goal of sorts to accomplish; just a hobby that I hope to use to develop my eye. Maybe it would be useful for work, maybe not. It's like photography. Some of the HDRs used in my projects were shot and assembled by me. Foresight? :D

17th September 2010

Crunch time at work, wasn't able to do anything. Today though, finally had time to look into doing some practice blending pencils. I recently acquired Drawing: From Life To Line by Mike Sibley (http://www.sibleyfineart.com/) and it is probably the best book on how to approach drawing fur and tone I've ever read.

This book gives detail on the technical side of drawing, such as how to blend tones, tools of the trade, paper types, and so much more that other books only gloss over.

Highly recommended for pencil technique, thought it is fairly pricey.

No practice from yesterday as I was pretty sick with a cold/flu/fever. Much better today but still feeling rather crook. Thankfully most of the stuff I'm working on is in a good condition. Time to zzzz before I collapse.
