#bandofsketchers prompt for Christmas day was Joy. I decided to sketch a sort of nativity scene. I wasn’t totally happy with it so added texture using the photodirector app on my phone. Merry Christmas x
I’m tired and not feeling much like doing anything, scratchy sore throat and a bit blocked up nose and ears. I decided to doodle a face. Why is it when I draw profiles they normally face left? Previous discussions with other artists raised the idea you can see where to draw easier if you draw the outline first then move back towards the eyes and mouth and ears. This is a finger drawing in ArtRage oils. I need to experiment more with it. I also need to find my stylus.
Sundays #bandofsketchers prompt was lens. I like drawing magnifying glasses and trying to get a good feeling of reality from an imagined object. This is my idea of how a lens looks. Felt pen drawing and fine ink liner pen. I used some metallic pens to give it a bit of a sheen.
A graffiti like image that started as a doodle with pastel and metallic pens. The scratches and textures were created using the photodirector app on my phone. Trying to create something that looks like it could have been painted on a wall and weathered over time.
An app I don’t use very often, but sometimes I remember it and then hve a play with it. This was just a doodle of a face. There is a metallic and non metallic pen and different sizes of them, plus a dry brush, an everlasting oils brush, and two others. The colours change depending on how metallic you set it. I think I could learn to control it better if I used a stylus instead of my finger to draw.
Well actually clothes horse with clothes on. At 3am this morning I was feeling rough, sore throat and achy so I decided to get up and draw. This was sketched in tippex and metallic pens on black paper. Photograph was late at night under electric light. I could take another photo but don’t feel well enough.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was clothes.
My slippers are grey with stars on them. Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was slippers or similar. I couldn’t get the photo exposure right because I was using shiny metallic pens. My foot up on the footstool trying to rest my calf muscle.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was using your other hand to draw. As I have injured my right hand I was happy to try and draw with my left hand
This is one of our cats. Drawn left handed. I could manage the outlinesbut the shading is a bit rough and ready. I used a dark blue ink brush to go over the black shading. I have some nice metallic pens which are useful to create related colours
Dragon with teardrop shaped scales. For swimming underwater, nostrils that close up with spring valves, a small mouth that can close tightly. Pressure resistant eyes and ears that can hear infrasound under the ocean. Another design idea. I duplicated and mirrored the dragon head as I had only drawn one half of it.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt is meditation. I wanted to do pattern to meditate on? I was trying to draw a mandala but it went a bit shaky and sideways. So I embellished it. Using various metallic pens.
