Another day done and gone. Yesterday, I mainly focused on drawing faces, (as it’s one of my favorite things to draw). I decided to draw with blue pen this time, and then red ballpoint ended up mixing itself in, to make for what I think is a really cool effect. It was a lot of fun, but also kind of frustrating, I had a bunch of practice sketches and things that I decided not to add, but I feel like, as with any artists, the worst critic is yourself.
Overall, I’ve had a lot of fun sketching so far. I may say it every time, but it really is just a nice way to create without all of the pressure that comes with in depth pieces. I don’t think I’ve done a finished piece since my last year of high school to be honest, I just can’t bring myself to put all that effort into something that I know I won’t think is good enough. It may sound rather harsh, but sketches are where I can go to really just allow my mind to run wild. I know a lot of people recommend using references, however, I use reference photos pretty rarely. Maybe I’ll try out doing only reference drawings some day soon, I think it definitely could be beneficial. For now though, this is what I’ve got for day 4 of my self-administered sketching challenge.
For this one, I tried to add in a bit of a background, I also wanted to do fairly large eyes, just to get the wide-eyed vibe. Especially because of all of the crazy atoms, flying (?) all around her.
I still don’t really know how to judge my own drawings, as I definitely see flaws in every sketch. That’s what sketching is all about though, isn’t it? Improvement.
Is it Wednesday?? I definitely get Addams’ family feelings from this one. I do really like this one for some reason. I think she’s kinda cute.
I’ll also be out of commission for the next few days, on probably what will be, the last camping trip of this year. I’m super excited to disconnect for a long weekend, and avoid all of the chaos for a little while. Wish me luck!
