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.
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.
I’ve been busy for a while so I haven’t updated my blog for so long.
Here is a poster that I designed for the Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta Foundation, Inc‘s 2015 Aviator of The Year Awards.
I updated my Behance portfolio, see the rest of the images here: https://www.behance.net/gallery/25532093/2015-Aviator-of-The-Year-Awards
You may also check out the PIHABF website, I think my poster is still there. 🙂
I did it, I missed 2 days of my “An Artwork A Day” project, but for good reason (a reason for another post.)
And so I finally did try to use some markers and some pens. I enjoyed doing this because it makes me feel so free. I didn’t erase some imperfections, I decided to leave it be. It feels so liberating.
I used these:
I haven’t bought some new markers yet, I was meaning to use these for doodling.
I forgot to bring my little sketchbook so I just settled with a yellow sticky note and some pens.
I used a Parker Vector Rollerball pen, a regular ball point pen, and a white Rotring Stargels Grip 0.7 pen. . . and some sweaty fingers -the sweaty fingers did a lot.
I didn’t use some blue inks. I just used black and white inks. For some reason, when I used the white pen over the black ink from the Parker pen, it turned blue. It must be the kind of ink it uses. I used my sweaty fingers to smudge some parts, after I accidentally smudged one part. I liked the overall effect. 😀
As I said earlier, I am in the process of experimenting in order to learn more about different media and styles that I might want to stick with.
Been really busy trying to save my photos, trying to free some disk space on my laptop. I am really uninspired so this is the best I can do right now. I know it looks like crap. I never said I’d do masterpieces every single day. :))
A friend of mine said that I should try to come up with a style or stick to a certain medium. I’m in the process of doing that, but right now I’m still trying to figure it out, so I’m trying different things, exploring different medias. One thing I learned is that colored pencils aren’t really my thing. At least not shading a lot—it makes my hand hurt quickly. I like using the brush more. Okay, that’s one thing I figured out today.
*the drawing is shot, not scanned, so it looks that way.
This should have been my “Day 1” in my “Artwork-A-Day” thing. I was sketching while sitting in the ICU next to my grandmother who’s admitted there. It was January 11. All that I could manage is a rough pencil sketch. I cleaned it up a bit and colored it in today.
Little girl with goat ears.
Another drawing that I started a long time ago. The problem is, between that time and today, The sketchbook got wet, and that would explain the wrinkly part near the binding (same as in here). It sucks, but I don’t want to waste anything.
I’m planning to edit out the creases digitally, instead.
This is supposed to be Karou. She’s the main character of Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. It’s a book that I was reading last 2012. I was currently reading it while I started drawing this. It’s one of the books I remember I really liked. I must remind myself to get a copy of the sequel! 🙂
Colored pencils, graphite.
