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.

Fishing for memories

Fishing for memories

Why such strange idea? Well, girl from the picture is heroine of my story (one of many, actually) and in the middle of writing new chapter I kind of wanted to see this scene. Urge was so strong, that I started sketching right away. I drew Arte behore, couple of times I suppose, but I think she still can't show her as I see her. Something is still missing. Well, maybe next time. I am still happy how this one turned out, even though it was a lot of work. Well, see for yourself!

Shiba Ryuu

Shiba Ryuu

Today a portrait, which I've painted for RudeOwl, it's the main hero of her original manga - Shiba Ryuu. At first I wanted to draw something more complicated, but I had so much trouble with his face that I had to abandon my original idea and focus on the portrait. Maybe next time I'll manage to do something more interesting. Right now let's just see how this almost female face and massive amount of hair were painted :D
