Prismacolor Pencil

It been awhile since I use my prisacolor pencil. I drew Naomi Scott and Mila Kunis and attempt to color them in using prisacolor pencil. Am happy with the results, what do you think?

Inktober 2020

Inktober 2020 is more than half way done and so far I’ve been able to keep up. I believe this is my fourth year doing inktober. This year, I’ve been able to draw all my drawings without using pencil first and then having to retracing it in ink. Am slowing building my confidence in drawing with ink. Some time I need to think about how to approach a drawing. Weather I should start with this shape or should I draw this line first and then draw a shape. Below are a few of my drawings from Inktober.

3rd sketchbook

One of my sketches from my 1st sketchbook. Bad? Is suppose to be Catherine Bell.

It was six years ago I decided to start teaching myself how drawing.  I went to Michael’s and brought my first sketchbook along with some other supplies just to experiment for fun.  The last time I was serious about art was in high school.  Remembering what I learned from high school I used that information as my starting point.  Drawing a oval like egg shape and dividing the shape on where the eyes would go, the nose and the month.  My drawing weren’t that great, but I could only get better with practice.

Now at the beginning of August 2020, I started my 3rd sketchbook where I just draw portraits. Looking over my drawing I can see that my drawing are closely resembling the actual person in the photo reference I use. Practice, even though this is just my 3rd sketchbook where I focus on drawing portrait, I’ve also practiced drawing them in my journals including add watercolor.   I still have much to improve and learn. Learning on your own has it challenges, but it also make it fun.

I’ll make you famous.

Acrylic Portraits Paintings

Well am stilling learning about painting with acrylic paints. It been a challenge, especially the whole mixing paints to get another color. I thought that would be easy, but I used up more paint trying to get a certain color then using paint on the actually painting. I don’t know about you, but this seem a lot easier when you a kid.

Here are two paintings that I did. One is of Barbara Palvin which I think is my best one that I’ve done so far. The second one is of Gal Gadot. Almost there, the hair need a lot of work and happy with the skin tone, but it could be better. Well I will be shifting gears a little since world watercolor month starts on Wednesday. Am not giving up on acrylic paints just yet, just a temporary pause. Anyone else doing World Watercolor month?

First Acrylic Paint

I brought these Winsor and Newton Acrylic Paint when COVID-19 was the headline in the news. Just wanted to experiment with acrylic paints and just have something different to work with. I really didn’t know what to expect whether it tough or easy painting with acrylic paints. I also brought a watercolor notebook. It states you can use acrylic paint on it. Maybe I should have brought those package canvas boards.

Sketchbook filled

After 2 year and about 2 months, I filled my sketchbook. This is my 2nd one that I’ve filled  If you visited my blog before you have seen a few post of portrait sketches I’ve done using photo reference.  The sketchbook I used is a canson sketchbook with 100 pages, 9×12 inches. I wish I could show you all my sketches so you can see the progress I’ve made with each sketch.  Just show the importance of practicing to get better.  Here are a few sketches that I’ve posted on this blog before along with some news one.  For the last five to eight pages I decided to see if I could sketch a portrait just using ink.
