I made this for a homework once. . . maybe it was for the English subject. According to the date in the red ink, it was checked on June 25, 2001.
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.
Done in 2001.
I was twelve and it was the time when dad had brought me some new art materials:
Bruynzeel markers and colored pencils (the one I used here), and some brushes.
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.
Been busy today. I’ve been cleaning up the contents of my laptop. This is all I can do today. 🙂
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.
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. 😦
The colors looked faded when I scanned it.
Here’s a more color-accurate to my actual drawing:
I fixed it with photoshop.
