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.

Handshake

Handshake

This time something rather quick, practice drawing for hands. Believe me, there is never too many of those exercises... I added the video to this short tutorial, I recommend watching the process, thinking about how I build shadows and lights on those hands, build their shape. I hope this tutorial will help a little bit those who (like me) have problems with drawing hands from time to time.

Birdie

Birdie

Another movie from the daily sketches series - another animal, this time a lot smaller :D On the movie I will show you how to draw such birdie from the very beginning to the end, maybe my techniques will become useful to you in your own creations. Also I'd like to encourage you to upload your drawings to YourWorks gallery (you can do that after logging in)! Lately few new drawings showed up and it makes me very happy :D Such small bird is a great exercise so watch the movie and try it out yourself!

Horse

Horse

Lately I've been under constant impression that I don't really improve despite sitting in front of the tablet for long hours. I didn't "study" drawing anymore even though I felt I really should. So I've decided to practice everyday, draw some study from photograph and see what I can do. And since it won't take long (I didn't plan to draw for more than an hour, it was just practice after all) I could record a movie for the process. That way you can see me drawing this simple horse portrait stroke by stroke.

I don't know, maybe you are already fed up with those furry, smiling dogs and cats but I had movie prepared and I decided it would be a shame not to show it. There will be a happy dog, buried in autumn leaves, for everyone who wants to become a children's books illustrator, because that was the purpose of this drawing. Apart from watching the movie you can read my description of the whole process.
