Poppy seed bun

Poppy seed bun

After a rather long break and all those speed-painting sketches with videos it's time for something more interesting (at least for me). I drew this as a form of relaxation right after coming back from Japan. Winter still hasn't come where I live so it's still quite appropriate to draw autumn themed things, right? ;) Feel free to read tutorial about flying cats, wool and sweet poppy seed bun. That bun is of the utmost importance.

Skull

Skull

Believe me or not, it's very hard to find time for writing and making tutorials while I'm in Japan (after all strolling around is more entertaining than sitting in front of computer), but I don't want to abandon the website for so long so here is the next on from the Daily Sketches series. Maybe not very optimistic drawing, but surely a great exercise ;)

Mt. Fuji

Mt. Fuji

I have no idea why this even happened, but this movie is the only one among all "daily sketches" movies, which had worse quality from the very beginning. I don't like it and I wouldn't even post it but on the other hand even though you can't see details clearly, you can still see what I do and follow along. And on top of that it corresponds nicely with me flying to Japan on Monday. This is a coincidence I couldn't ignore :D So this is something like postcard from me, or maybe a goodbye - Mt. Fuji.

Gun

Gun

Never too many hands, I'd say. Another hand-drawing exercise and in the same time a moment spend on the gun. This was another quick sketchy exercise for me, right after hard exam (if you are wondering - I picked the topic for my exercise at random so it was a coincidence... and yes, I passed with flying colors). Anyway I was tired so it didn't go all that well but final result is acceptable so I am showing the process. Hands are tricky - sometimes easy, sometimes super hard. But that's why you practice! :)

Shoes

Shoes

Another movie from this small series of fast sketches! Hopefully those aren't too boring for you ;) Lately I don't have much time for painting so those little drawings are all I do and can only wonder if videos are interesting enough for you, since topic of those drawings clearly isn't too fancy. Today something from still life, shoes in about an hour (video i slightly faster than original, since it took about 100 minutes to draw this - too long for you to watch, I suppose) and some fun with depth of field. I'll show you some simple tricks and guide you through the process.
