A little bit of a challenge coloring this one. One of the challenges is being able to work with the colors you have. Next would be the different shades of brown and then the blending of the colors. Still trying to figure out how to color hair to make it look like hair.
Another two more drawings colored in with prismacolor pencil. The coloring of the hair need a lot of work. As for the skin tones, well am limited by colors that are available to me, which are the 24 that came in the set.
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.
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.
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?
