Day Three - and first day trying to squeeze it in after work.

Not very successful evening drawing - I'm practicing guitar as well in the evenings, and it doesn't really give me enough time to eat and fully focus on drawing. As I need the guitar practice less, I'm going to do less of that and make sure I prioritise the drawing instead.

This really needed me to properly set up an easel and spend about half hour on it, but I just rushed and wasn't really focusing on what I was doing as I was just trying to finish it. So I'm going to go back to this exercise tomorrow. For now though, I want to at least do something each evening, so posting anyway.

Trying to start this thing off again

Been a very long time, but I'm going to try and start posting again just to track/encourage my own progress. Starting from the beginning, and just been doing some basic drawing exercises from the excellent 'Basic Drawing: How to Draw What You See' by Charles Williams.

Batman. Stop.

Fuck, been over a year since I did ANYTHING on here. Planning to give it another go - been doing a lot of music lately and being a bit more creative and now I'm itching to get some drawing done again.

Well, a little scratchy at least.

So, I happened on a drawing book that seemed to be just what I need and I plan to work my way through it. I was actually going to do a few sketches last weekend, but then I realised because I have a new PC, my old scanner is incompatible and I need a new one. Still, going to at least try and get some drawing done over the weekend even if I don't post up for a little bit.

Hopefully I'll be back on here soon!

Bee's Mouth

And stuff from tonight - so-so stuff. The one at the top I like though - we had to a drawing in the dark and that was it. I actually thought I was using a thick black pencil, so I was a bit surprised when the light came on and it was all blue.
