Yesterday I went the extra mile, with some serious doodling. It was just really relaxing, and I had quite a bit of time to draw. I’ve been using a 4×6 sketchbook for most of my doodles recently but sometimes, it’s just a bit too small. I decided to take out an ancient high school sketchbook that I’ve had forever and start using that again.
I have the terrible habit of never finishing/reusing old sketchbooks, so hopefully this will help me break that habit. I think I’m going to keep filling old notebooks/sketchbooks for a while, until I can safely say that I haven’t wasted any precious pages.
These are the sketches I did in my little sketchbook, before I decided I needed more space. I also got sick of using pencil, I love using ball point pen for sketches, and when I found a red one, I got super excited to draw! I find that sometimes using different supplies really helps spark some ideas, maybe that’s just me?
Regardless, I really enjoyed the sketching process yesterday, and I’m glad to be drawing a bit each day. I have a feeling I’ll probably stick with it a while, even though somedays are less than stellar. Does anyone else take the time to draw, or cultivate a hobby, each day?
I took some time to draw facial features, and aliens of course. Not to mention the many circles and lines in between. When I sketch, instead of doing a warm-up with circles and lines, I usually incorporate them into the page. Don’t ask me why, for some reason it just happens as I’m doodling. Without me even noticing really.
