Yesterday, Drawing

An Artwork A Day, Digital Art, Doodles, Drawings, Illustrations

I drew this on Photoshop yesterday afternoon while I was sleepy and was in a place where it isn’t okay to sleep. I guess this can fit in on my “An Artwork A Day” thing, but I am going to stop counting them. I have a lot more drawings but I haven’t posted or scanned them yet. Too busy.

yes it’s unfinished. I was really sleepy. haha

this is how messy I normally draw. . . but I draw faster this way.

And I was too sleepy to care. Somehow I want to keep this messy style because I am most comfortable with this style. Loose and free. I don’t really care whether people will like or hate this style. I know there are probably people who are into this.

An-Artwork-A-Day, Day 45: Tea with My Good Friend

An Artwork A Day, Daycraft Signature Sketchbook A5, Drawings

This is a very very very late post. . . about that time that my friend and I had an “Art Day” that happened last June 2.

My friend and I went to this cool branch of Prosperitea.

An-Artwork-A-Day, Day 40: Soccer

(still part of my “late posts”)

I drew these last May 25. At my brother’s soccer game. Of course, I drew these before the soccer game —because I had to watch the game.

I try to draw my subjects as fast as I can because every time I draw, I never let people know what I’m drawing. I’m challenging myself to capture things as fast and as accurate as possible. I obviously need to work on it harder.

It was last May 24. (this is one of my so-called “late posts”) I got up early in the morning because I wanted to join the Urban Sketchers Philippines sketchwalk event to celebrate their third anniversary.

It was a nice summer day, I took a long walk around Makati until I reached the venue, which was at Jaime Velasquez park, the same place of the Salcedo Saturday Market.

I went there alone, because I wanted to get to know people of the same interests. The way to find out who the sketchers were was to just simply take out your sketch materials and sketch. Soon enough I met a new friend and the organizers of the event found us.

I have never felt more relaxed. It’s a nice day and we were free to choose what we want to sketch. The aim of the group was ” to share a glimpse of the beauty (and not) of our cities or otherwise about life through our sketchbooks.” I don’t normally draw city structures and other objects. I usually draw people. I have to practice drawing different subjects.

This is my favorite part (also taken from their Facebook group “about” page):

“It has less to do with skill level or technique. What is more important is experiencing the process of looking, seeing, feeling and recording on paper.”

I just joined their Facebook page a week before and was really excited to go, even if I don’t know anyone there.

I made two sketches. One was a group of people sitting on a bench in front of me. Another was a of fire tree petal I saw fallen on another bench.

these are the group of people sitting in the bench in front of me, they don’t move much for hours so it’s alright. I was in a hurry to finish, though, because the sun was scorching on my arm

I used watercolor, unfortunately, I guess the paper was made for dry media so it easily wrinkled up. Also, the color absorbs too quickly that you can’t undo a mistake.

While waiting for my friend at the mall, I sat at the food court where there’s a band playing. They were composed of only three members: 1 singer, 1 guitarist, 1 percussions. Because I got nothing to do, I just sketched each one of them. Extremely rough sketches, since it’s hard when they’re moving. And also, the last one, the percussions dude, I think he noticed what I’m doing, he looked uncomfortable so I didn’t get to really finish his.
