Remembering The Nemo

Black Star Art Spiral Sketchbook, Updates

I was in the process of making another blog post about updates that I intended to post about but then I was suddenly occupied by something important.

My cat (well, me and my brother’s) needed me.

An-Artwork-A-Day, Day 6: Karou

An-Artwork-A-Day, Day 6

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.

An-Artwork-A-Day, Day 4

This is one of the drawings I’ve drawn a long time ago that I’ve only finished just now. (I’m not even satisfied yet)

The binding edge of the paper got wrinkly because I had spilled water on it months ago. I didn’t notice that it got wet, until after a few minutes, that’s why. 😦

Colored pencils.

The colors looked faded when I scanned it.

Here’s a more color-accurate to my actual drawing:

I fixed it with photoshop.

An-Artwork-A-Day, Day 1: Le Crappy Monroe

I was practicing quick sketching. .
I was dizzy so the drawing didn’t look much like my reference (I can’t try so hard because I’m dizzy).
I was trying to figure out what will work better for me.

Of course I wasn’t thinking so much, so I didn’t realize that the blacks of my 6B pencil will mix in with the oil pastel I had just shaded on top of it. On the other hand, I was just experimenting to see what will happen next.

Then, without thinking again (haha), I tried to fix the grays with some leftover gouache paint from my palette (they’ve dried so I just wet them so I can use them again). Of course, it didn’t really stick because of the oily nature of the pastel, but somehow I liked the effect.

It looked like crap, but I guess that was my intention. Besides, I’ve come across many art/illustrations that are just as rough.

This was my reference, by the way:

Marilyn Monroe. Photograph: Eve Arnold/PA (flip the image and then it becomes my reference)

I know, right, it doesn’t look the same —in fact far from the same. But then again, I wasn’t really paying that much attention. 😛

I’m just trying to do as I promised, to make one artwork -any artwork for each day.

(. . .and this one, I did yesterday.)
