Tulips

Tulips

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.

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 ;)

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.

This time something more spring-like and simple. It was a practice I did, based on the photograph I like very much :) Even such simple drawings can be fun, especially when you can learn something while painting them. Everything just because I couldn't paint decent... flowers. I even had to ditch what I was drawing just to learn more about flowers, it was that hard for me. You can see original photo for this one here: gallery of Andokadesbois. Thank you so much!
