So I’ve just come back from this week’s art lesson where I’ve been learning about the ink wash technique which looks fantastic and I really need to research it more…but here you go, here’s my first attempt:
So I’ve just finished my Tony Stark project but saw a most excellent tutorial on drawing Thor on black card but felt I’d like to try my own example and, well, here you go….
So whilst I took a break from my main Tony Stark project (which is done by the way), I thought I’d have a go at an iconic photo of Muhammad Ali in Pencil…..and a bit of charcoal so here is the greatest himself. Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee…..
So I’ve just started an evening art course and I’ve never used chalk to draw before and I was very impressed by my first go so I’ve included it in my blog today…. and here it is:
Hey, so further adventures in drawing….well, I’m stuck in bed, I have a couple of books but I thought I’d look at some web imagery and tutorials and as mentioned before, I am a bit of a wrestling fan….so I’ve drawn one of the greats in the wwe…John Cena and…..here he is…
It’s messy isn’t it?….But when you get past that, it is a lovely medium for drawing with.

Hey, so I’ve just had keyhole surgery for a hernia and couldn’t be bothered to pay crazy prices for the TV….so what did I do? Of course, I drew. I drew some of my adventures in Egypt and I’ll pop a few up over the next couple of days but I’ve got a sicknote for 2 weeks so I’ve got plenty of time for a few more…… I give you, Rameses the great at Abu Simbel….
Crazy fact for ya….Those figures next to his legs are his beloved daughters….another fact, they don’t think he was the one who banished Moses but rather his son Merenptah.
