Somehow I wasn't sure what I want to paint and when I'm like that nothing usually comes right, so I decided I can struggle a bit with urban landscape and don't feel bad about the result. I never draw such things. I expected disaster. It was a huge shock that something actually came out of it. I made lots of mistakes and killed the perspective in few places but I'm still proud. I put it here for fun and to show you what could have been made better. Especially you shouldn't trust your eye and be lazy when it comes to drawing grid/lines for perspective. Or just be lazy and use the brush I give you ;)
This time another video from my daily sketches series. Well, honestly speaking, I stopped doing those sketches some time ago (lack of time) but I still have some I wish to share with you, as they might help you improve your own skills or maybe motivate you. For me this one was particularly difficult, possibly due to lack of experience in painting landscapes. But that's okay! Practice makes perfect!
Drawing those kind of creatures is a funny exercise. It didn't take much time and yet was a very enjoyable exercise. If you are short on ideas, I recommend trying to mix two random animals (or three, for more daring) and also design some new colors for the resulting creature. I decided to try with hummingbird and shrew combination. I sketched out on paper many other little things, but this one I certainly liked the most.
Something not for kids maybe, but there's gotta be a change from time to time and maybe for those more lazy this will be a good motivation to get some anatomy practice done! ;) I hope you are not too deeply disappointed, maybe you will like this short ride through the drawing process of this image. Personally I am not to fond of the result and I hope t will turn out differently but it's always one more and practice makes you perfect, right?
For today I've prepared another short (ok, maybe not so short) video with me drawing tulips. Somehow I am usually terrible at drawing flowers. On my images they are always heavy and artificial looking. Well, drawing aside, in real life I'm not any better at handling flowers, everything in my pots is either dried or rotten. There must be something in flowers that I don't understand :D I liked those tulips though, maybe you can benefit from this short video too.
