Bad sketching

Hey, so I’m in bed thinking of what to sketch, then I notice my Michael Jackson’s Bad LP (yes, I am a bit of a hipster, I have 9 of my favourite LP’s on the wall with a record player next to my guitar….which I can play…..so-so….anyhow, I digress, I took my sketch pad out and thought I’d have a go at drawing the artwork for the Bad front cover)….Bare in mind this is only a sketch, but boy, it’s tricky as Michael Jackson was changing his look every five minutes in this era but anyhow, here’s what it looks like so far….definitely needs a lot of work though:

See, needs a fair bit of work, I started the arm and torso contours and realised he needed buckles and stuff for his jacket.

Sick in hospital

So, I’ve been sat on a chair in a day unit at Southampton General Hospital today (where I probably will be tomorrow too) and all I could do was stare out a window….So I got my pen and sketched what I saw…..

Bit worried about that crack!

Drawing in the park…

So, as promised, after spending most of the day in hospital waiting for and operation tomorrow, I’ve finally gotten around to uploading the drawing I did this morning in the park outside my apartment…..I hope you like it as I’ve used a little bit of artistic license on bits here and there…..Did I mention Alan Shearer was married in this church?

Really taken a fair few liberties with this one but please forgive me….I blame the nippy dog wanting me to throw the ball every 5 minutes.

Ideas for leftovers…

Hey, so it’s Sunday and I’ve just come back from doing a bit of an impressionist sketch down the park but I was thinking about all the chicken I have left from yesterday…see below…I’m just checking out the bbc goodfood guide for suggestions (like chicken and pasta, curry, noodles etc) but check this ton of beer can chicken I have for maybe a week…I hear I can freeze and refreeze it so I should be good…but as I say, it’s an awful lot! (p.s. I’ll post up my sketch from this morning later).

Excuse the bluriness…it was still a bit hot.

Random scribbling is pretty awesome…

So I heard if you draw random squiggles with a pen you can create some interesting portraits and yeah…I agree, I think this ended up pretty cool…if a little scary…Looks a bit like my grandmother actually 😮

A study of the nose

Hey, so this morning I looked at some of my old drawings and realised the nose was a bit rubbish. So I decided to focus on it a bit since it’s a really important part of the face. It’s quite prominent and always good to know. I’ve included some of my notes in pencil but I think I need a lot more work. Again, it’s really important to remember how shade works on it and the variation there is.

I started by designing the flat shape of the nose, then worked on each kinda angle and then how shadows and light play a part. After that I tried to draw a nose and think about how it looks on a skeleton considering the nose is mostly fat and tissue.
