I have felt sick most of today – I don’t know if it’s my neck being out or food poisoning or what. So not much words to accompany today’s art. Basically my goal was to practice some basic geometric shapes – especially cylinders. Drawing coffee mugs is a way to keep cylinders feeling more interesting while I draw. I did a page of plain drawing drills (basically quick ovals and rectangles) on newsprint, before opening my sketchbook.
Later in the night, I opened up Photoshop and went to town freehand drawing some geometric shapes, while watching Batman the Animated Series on HBO Max. Which was soothing, hah. Free hand except some of the straight lines – I did use the shift key in Photoshop to keep some of the lines parallel to the canvas. Lots of practice with sketching brushes, with the brush smoothing setting, and with rotating the canvas.
And then finally, I decided to try my hand at sketching a face again, since my attempts from yesterday and Monday did not work out. I think it turned out pretty good, as far as the line art goes. I need more drawing practice overall, but I’m glad I put some practice time in. And I still need to practice hair, skin tones, face shapes… the list goes on.
‘Til next time <3
