Today I practiced drawing a bit bigger woman.
Today my daughter selected a picture from net (drawing of pennywise) and we both drew a version of it. Again I tried to copy, and my daughter made her own version
Today I drew a picture of a girl, a sketch about the famous composition of Edvard Munch ‘The Scream’ , one drawing again following Christopher Hart’s YouTube video and then practiced drawing hands.
Today’s drawing is a scared cat, once again from Christopher Hart’s YouTube video.
On Monday I drew a female face based on Christopher Hart’s YouTube video
Then on Tuesday I and my daughter drew a pirate rabbit again from Christopher Hart’s YouTube video. My daughter actually can draw, so she does make all pictures her own, I just try to copy.
This week I first draw again things from Christopher Hart’s YouTube videos. I really do like them.
Next one is not directly copied anywhere, but it is a combination of couple of pictures found online.
Then I found a couple of YouTube videos showing how to draw a glass of water. Clearly I need more practice 😉
Then back to practicing with Christopher Hart
This week I finished a drawing that I have been continuing on and off for few weeks. It is an exercise for Udemy course The Ultimate Drawing Masterclass: Start Drawing Better Today. You can find my earlier pitiful attempts on my May 13th post about my progress on March . So this is a proof that Tuomas Tuimaala’s teachings work. It is still far from perfect (I really would need to find a source of patience and perserverance so that I could continue until I would be totally happy with a drawing, but at some point I get fed up and stop), but this still is quite huge improvement from my earlier attempts.
I drew some pictures again following instructions on Christopher Hart’s books and videos:
Then one drawing following instruction video on YouTube Channel Pencil Drawing
I have tried to draw something every day this week, mostly following Christopher Harts YouTube videos for beginners. My photography is unfortunately pretty lousy 🙁
This one is from Christopher Hart’s book ‘Manga for the beginner – midnight monsters’
Then practising drawing eyes.
Still practicing different things. I do not have very much time, and when I would have time, I have no energy to practice much, but anything is better than nothing, right?
I started redrawing the portrait in online drawing course ‘Muotokuva helposti’ Only outlines so far.
I though that portrait course was so good – as even I was almost able to follow the instructions 😉 – so I joined also his basics of drawing course ‘Piirtämisen perusteet‘
Here are some of the drawings I made when practicing different things on that course. There is a lot of need for improvement, so would really need to practice more. On the first one perspective is definitely somehow wacky. On the second the picture on the right hand side has been drawn normally, and the left hand side having the reference picture and my paper upside down. Presumably drawing things upside down might improve your drawings, but here definitely that is not the case.
I also did some random shading exercises and played with oil pastels
One very good resource – if you wish to draw more cartoon style pictures – is Christopher Hart. He has made several books, but he is also available in youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/chrishartbooks
