Hummingshrew

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.

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.

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.

Wings

I was really troubled while thinking about this image, I didn't know what I actually want to paint. I knew that I need to draw a portrait, probably of a beautiful girl, or maybe "interesting" girl. Why I was struggling so much? I wanted to draw something for upcoming Exotique book from Ballistic Publishing and I felt that nothing I've painted lately is acceptable. That's why I needed a portrait for this occasion!
