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:
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…..
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?
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).
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 😮
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.
