Daily-Draw February 29

Last day! It's over! =D

I didn't get to make anything good or special for today due to lack of time and ideas, but I'm happy I managed to make something for every day, whoo!

Not sure I'll do this challenge again any time soon, but it was nice to be drawing/doodling again! =)

One more day left! Here, have a random gentleman!

Just another quick drawing I have done. The month is almost over!

I've had a long and busy day today, with a big family reunion which I helped out at and which lasted all day. And of course there was way too much food involved!
This is how I felt after/during it.

Sorry for the crappy picture, I drew it with pen on a tiny piece of paper and then took a picture of it with my not-so-great webcam.

Daily-Draw February 25

Yes I know, I'm late. =(
Though if I were in the UK already I'd still be in time! =P

But yes, the reason I'm late is because I have been spending today preparing for a big family reunion tomorrow for about 70 people. I made two tiramisu cakes and helped my sister with her dessert. And tonight I helped set up the room where the thing is going to be held and I helped with some other preparations.

So here is just a very quick and not so great doodle of what my tiramisu cakes sort of look like.

In a retro mood, so here is a retro-inspired drawing. =P

And we're still going! Took me a while to know what to draw, but then I randomly picked the word 'ferocious' from my list and this is what I ended up drawing for that.

One week left!
I did the same as yesterday. Found a paint texture online and then drew whatever I saw in the paint. A bit different and experimental I guess, but I enjoy doing this.
Maybe once I've moved I can start making my own paint textures! =)

February 21, 2012

Daily-Draw February 21

I did something different today. I looked up some paint textures online and then looked at what I could do with it. This is what I ended up with and I have to say I'm quite happy with the result. =)

A simple one today. My aunt is lending me her sewing machine, so my mind is currently all about sewing, even though I still have to start!
I did a heart because that's what the colour red reminds me of, plus because I love learning new things. =)

If anyone has any sewing tips or tricks or simple things for me to make ('cause I'm a beginner with absolutely no sewing experience), feel free to let me know! =D

A blog-chain award

There is a blog award going around which people give to each other. I was given this one by An!
These are the rules:
1. Add the award to your blog.
2. Thank the blogger(s) who gave it to you.
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4. List the rules.
5. Award to 15 bloggers.
6. Inform each of the 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

7 things about me:
1 - Apart from art, one of the other things I like spending time on is videogames.
2 - I have always said that if I can't have a job as an artist, I wouldn't mind working with animals. Working in a zoo/petting farm would be amazing as I love animals!
3 - My room is always a mess, much to the annoyance of my mom (sorry!).
4 - Sparkling water is my favourite drink. I will always carry a bottle with me.
5 - I make lists for everything: things I need to do, things I need to buy, ... I like to have things planned out!
6 - I still sleep with a teddy bear in bed since it's so nice and soft. =)
7 - I love theme parks, but rarely get to go. If I could visit one every month, I would!

Alright, now I have to give this award to other people. Sadly I don't follow 15 blogs, and the few I do seem to have already gotten this award. So the only other person I can give it to is:

10 more days to go!
Almost finished, I can see the finish line!

February 18, 2012

Daily-Draw February 18

Just a quick doodle today as I'll be going to the cinema tonight!
I have spent all day looking at webcoding and similar things, so this is how I feel at the moment!

February 17, 2012

Daily-Draw February 17

Phew! Been gone all day and only got back not too long ago. Spent my day visiting a friend, which was nice!

I did manage to make a sketch on the train though, so I've quickly scanned it in so I'm still in time for my daily drawing! Maybe at some point I'll turn this into a proper drawing, who knows!
(I also seem to have a thing for sleeping people/children.)

I'm posting a work in progress today. I'm helping someone to create the DVD cover for their student film. The original sketch was made by Nick Claes, but he had to cancel so now I am continuing where they left it. I redrew the sketch in my own style, while making a few changes and adding some extra things. If she likes the sketch, I can start finishing it up soon. =)

Another quickie today!

I found out Desperate Housewives is back on tv tonight (why didn't they tell me sooner?!) so I'm looking forward to that! One of my favourite shows, whoo! So I drew this, 'cause I love that feeling of snuggling up on the sofa with a blanket, eating a yummy snack and watching a show you like. =D

I've been a bit busy today going shopping and going for new glasses (well new glass inserts for my glass frame) and then exercising at the chiropractor, so now I feel tiiiiired. Because I don't have the energy to do a proper drawing, I just did this quick doodle. Hopefully I can do something a bit better again tomorrow, sorry!

February 13, 2012

Daily-Draw February 13

We're almost halfway! I'm amazed I've been able to keep it up this far haha. Let's see if I can reach the finish line!

Found a texture that just begged me to have something drawn in it!

February 12, 2012

Daily-Draw February 12

Almost running out of time today!
But I managed to make something, whoo!

Though I'm having problems saving this as a jpg or png in Photoshop. The colours go all weird when I try to upload it online, even though it looks fine on my computer. The image I'm posting here is a screenshot I took of the drawing, so not ideal for my image quality. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong in saving my image? =(

February 11, 2012

Daily-Draw February 11

No inspiration today, so I just made a doodle of myself trying to think of something to draw. Except I normally don't sit at a desk. =P

For today's drawing I started with a simple digital cloud practice (after listening to 'Feeling Good' by Muse I felt like drawing a blue sky).

Then I remembered how I used to draw digital"realistic" images all the time years ago. I would spend days on just one drawing, drawing individual hairs and spots, all on a simple online drawing program that wouldn't let you save your progress (all you could do was submit the finished image). So I'd have my computer on for dayssss, drawing during my spare time after school heh.

I decided to do a realistic drawing again, though I did it a lot more roughly than I would have back in the day. The time limit has something to do with that too. =P
I drew a snow leopard as they are some of my favourite animals. I love how majestic they look!

This is for those people who have over-active brains at night, when you should be sleeping. I know I'm one of them. Random thoughts going through your mind, thinking about anything and everything, seemingly all at once!

February 8, 2012

Daily-Draw February 8

No doodle or experiment today.
I finally finished a commissioned drawing for a website which is to be used as a T-shirt design and on stickers. Had been working on this for a while already, drawing motorbikes is not easy!
I made three different versions so the guy can pick whichever one he likes best (he likes all three, whoo).

Drew this one at night. Sometimes it feels like life is crushing you down and you have to try and survive, to keep moving on.

I will already apologise, as today's entry is really just kinda bleh. But I didn't really feel like thinking of anything to draw today. Just grabbed some scrapped paper that I was about to throw away (and still will) and started drawing.

The first one had some colour on it from where I tested my paints. Just started drawing in that corner, and somehow I ended up turning this into some kind of Venus portrayal (like the Venus from Botticelli). My scanner didn't do the colours/lines any justice (made it all look worse), but I didn't feel like trying to fix it.

Then I also doodled this on another piece of scrap paper and gave it some highlights/shading in Photoshop. Don't ask me what's going on cause I don't know heh. Just a random doodle.

Daily-Draw February 5

Something quick today because I couldn't think of anything to draw.
I decided to fiddle a bit with the brush settings in Photoshop to see what I could do with it. A Chinese-like drawing is the result.

A quick doodle today. I drew a robin, since we have quite a few of those in our snowy garden, pecking away at the food we've placed there for them. Such cute and lovely birds!

February 3, 2012

Daily-Draw February 3

And here is number 3! I currently seem to have a thing for long vertical canvasses haha. I just find it fun to work with I think, plus it helps to portray the fall in this one.

The Fall of Icarus

Daily-Draw February 2

So here is the second drawing for the second day of the month. So far, so good. =P

I drew this last night while listening to some (sad) music. Also had Radiohead's "Street Spirit (Fade Out)" playing, which influenced this a bit I guess, having the character fade out into the darkness.

I drew this with a white chalk pencil (I think) on black A3 paper. One of the only art things I still have around in my room heh.

So I'm on a forum somewhere and someone decided to start a thread in which we all post one drawing for every day in February (he got the idea from another forum). So every day you post a new drawing. This can be anything, a finished drawing, work in progress, a simple doodle.

I decided to join, but I'm not sure I'll be able to draw something every day. We'll see though!
Since I have already packed away most of my art supplies, I think most of these will be digital doodles heh. Unless I decide to unpack my stuff, but I might be too lazy for that. =P

Anyway here's my first doodle!
Decided to go for something wintery since it's so cold here and there's snow everywhere.
A boy is standing in a deep pit or ditch and I guess the girl is afraid to go down there herself. Yeah, I don't know why I drew this. =P
