I’m back and making speed drawing videos again. I had to figure it all out again since I don’t have access to the same equipment as before. I had to use my iphone to film it all. Although the quality is not great, I’m happy I was able to do it successfully.
I chose to draw Hugh Jackman. I’m somewhat happy with the result, but his face is wider than it should be. I checked the proportions over and over again and could not figure out where my mistake was so I just went with it.
I’m ready to do another drawing video, source picture is picked out and everything, so now to get it started.
I’ve been drawing a bit over the past month and forgot to show it on my blog! Silly me. My family went on a quick trip to visit/meet some family and while we were gone, I was determined to get some drawing in. I didn’t get much in but I got a start on this Patrick Stewart.
By the time I got the face finished, I was ready to move on to something else. So I just outlined the clothing and called it good. It’s a 5×8 inch size.
I decided to do kind of a companion drawing, so why not put together the bromance of the year. I did a quicker version of Ian McKellan here. Both of these reference pics came from Vanity Fair.
A lot more sketchy. I didn’t feel like doing more. 5×8 inch.
And most recently I finished this one of the lovely Marion Cotillard.
It’s 11×14. It didn’t turn out as smooth as I hoped but it’s fine.
I’m also starting to actually scan these drawings instead of taking pictures of them. I think they look a little better since they then stay perfectly proportioned. Still working on my editing skills though.
Lately I’ve been looking for new reference pictures on Pinterest. I’ve been finding gorgeous pictures, but the bad thing is that I’ve been finding too many! One good picture leads to many more that are even better. So I’m a little overwhelmed and don’t know what to draw next. I’ve kind of been wanting to draw a group picture. Like 90’s faves, *Nsync, or the cast of Friends, or Will & Grace. I’ve been watching and listening to those lately. The bad thing is that I’ve been ADD about my drawings, if it takes longer than 3 days to do, I want to stop and do something new. So group drawings probably aren’t the best idea. Eek!
