Day 286

I've come to realize that I draw differently than most of the artists I see. It's when I post a work in progress such as this that I notice the difference. Albeit, most of my drawings are small, but I've notice even on my larger drawings that I am all over the place. The artists I follow typically sketch a preliminary outline and then fill in the drawing from left to right. I'm not saying one thing or another or even trying to compare myself to these artists; it's merely an observation.

Day 285

Practiced some lighting today. I used only one pencil for the entire drawing and  am surprised I was able to get it as dark as I did without scratching through the paper. Once I had the graphite down where I wanted it I smoothed it out and developed the soft gradients to wash out any hard lines where the light was more brilliant. Overall I think this turned out rather nice.

Day 283

While cooking a pizza tonight I sat down with a soda and drew the day's sketch. I used the tablet and stylus again for this as it was nearby and well, getting up to grab a pencil and paper was at the time a very taxing thought. Additionally I really like to practice digital art. Enjoy!
