Today’s session on the Princess Bride drawing was all about laying down material and grinding it into the paper.
The planning phase of this Princess Bride drawing has taken longer than any other drawing I’ve done and the planning continued today with composing trees.
The next step in my Princess Bride drawing is to clearly separate the lights and darks starting with the focal point of the image.
After a normal day of work and my beginning exercises I started converting my composition to the real Princess Bride drawing.
I’ve chosen a Princess Bride composition for the drawing and it only took a couple more thumbnails to get there.
I’ve had an all day art marathon full of energy, motivation, research, cleaning, new exercises and a new process.
I’ve finished the Black Panther drawing, or at least I’m calling it finished with a bit of resignation.
I had a ton of fun today during my art session rocking out to some music and piling up charcoal on the paper.
From the day I started research for this drawing I’ve had a severe lack of clarity in motive, and the quality is suffering because of…
After yesterday’s influence from amazing compositions I started incorporating what I learned right away by simplifying the values into three tones.
I didn’t have enough time to get deep into it but I’m focusing more on simplifying the head with this charcoal Black Panther drawing.
Today I started a second drawing of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther but with a paper that I’m not supposed to use with dry media.
I was right, after a good night of sleep I was able to make a decision on how to proceed with my Black Panther drawing.
Today’s research into the next Fandom Fitness drawing has resulted in a whole lot of smoke and that is exactly what I see when I…
I didn’t have a lot of time for my art session today so I did what I could and had a short practice day.
After making some adjustments to the tail I’m calling this Tyrannosaurus drawing finished.
I beginning to get comfortable with minimal detail in my drawings but there is always a question about how much is not enough.
I’m learning that describing complex forms that are smooth is much easier than trying to describe complex forms with scales.
I’ve had a very productive labor day today by focusing as much as I can on art throughout the day.
Today was a relaxing and easy day as I focused on art and recovery by drawing early and keeping my workout easy.
With every new drawing I try to put motive first. It’s the motive or idea that determines everything from composition to material.
I’ve had a long day of working today but not much of it was on creating art but framing it.
Today has been a day of adjustments. I’m going to be adjusting my current Jurassic Park drawing as well as my future roadmap of practice…
Today was the first day of work on the Tyrannosaurus drawing but I’m not convinced the composition will communicate action, movement and depth.
