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.
It feels like it’s been a long time since I shared something here.
There’s been an internet connection problem and then it seems I caught the flu, and some cold. The weather has been crazy. As of now, my nose is still clogged and I still feel a bit dizzy. I should be able to continue the portrait that I was working on tomorrow. . . hopefully.
In this drawing, I used ballpens.
I guess I was inspired by Aleksandra Czudżak (or ConfusedLarch)‘s drawings.
Art Noveau-y. So I gave the idea a try. . . sort of.
I wanted to try using cheap media: like pens and crayons. . . . next time I’ll try crayons, cause they’re often overlooked.
Yesterday, there was a butterfly near our window, near where we were all singing karaoke.
I wish I’d seen it. So I just imagined how it looked like, probably not the way I’d drawn it.
All 6B pencil.
I have a lot of graphic pencils and most of them are 6Bs. I don’t know, maybe it was the time when Mom gives me by boxes of 12s. . . and I’m not sure if she knew that she was buying a 6B, I’m sure she doesn’t even know pencil grades. :))
Oh well, more pencils, more fun.
Next thing I know, 6B became my favorite.
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 decided to use a media that I’m not used to using: markers. (And for this particular drawing, I only used one color. :P)
For reasons I don’t want to reveal yet, I’ve been very busy these past few days and I just can’t sleep very well. So, while drawing, I was, I think, 60 percent groggy.
But, because there is not much to do and I really can’t sleep even if I want to, I just distracted myself by drawing some people around me. Most of them didn’t know that they’re being drawn, except for the boy in the pink shirt, who is my youngest brother. I was meaning to color all the other sketches, but I just couldn’t focus anymore.
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.
