Sketching

After sketching a little something every day this month, I've really learned what keeping in practice means. After continual drawing throughout my seven years of college I definitely felt like I took for granted what I needed to do to stay in good shape.

I also learned that I never really found my voice (so to speak) when it comes to sketching/drawing style. With my sister's suggestion, I need to develop and more importantly embrace my style. It doesn't have to match anyone else's and it really shouldn't. I'm going to finish out this month and try to see how I need to continue on my design path. Thanks for following me so far!

My little Sanrio stack

Happy Christmas Eve! I wasn't sure what to draw today and spotted my little Sanrio family of square soft toys and felt they would be a good gift drawing!

Little Piggie Lamp

Many moons ago a certain young man bought a certain young girl a piggie lamp for her birthday. She kept it thinking it was adorable. Little did she know that this nice little gesture would end with a life commitment.

Sweetie

Aw man, the lazy train is hard to get off of! I saw an adorable pic of my dearest Sweetie (german shepard mix) and felt he needed a random dedication. 

Love you, Sweetie! You will always be one of my fondest memories - dog or human

Oh the good ole days of Process

If you are a design major then 'Process' will sound very familiar to you. It's one of those important foundation courses we must all take to understand the basics/intricacies of design drawing. 

All the angles in which a spherical object will vary in degrees of radial depth based on how far it is from its grounding surface. 

Not following? Here's my late night visual!



I've been taken to do many last min sketches to fulfill my December Dailies and I think it's pretty evident where I spend time to do a sketch and where I don't. I did this one at midnight while tilting to one side... Must try more tomorrow!

The Sound of Music

One of my favorites, the classic Sound of Music with the ever so lovely Julie Andrews. Here's my little ode for today :)



I had absolutely no idea that the story is in fact based on a true story! The real Von Trapp family experienced many similar occurrences with what the movie/broadway play showed. 

Here is a photo of the actual Von Trapp family singers (found from Wikipedia) This is blowing my mind...am I the only one?

You know how there are some days you try and then there are some days you truely don't? Well...

Here's Jimmy's gourd. 


Here's my drawing of Jimmy's gourd. 


And here's the continual effor of drawing myself. This was a 10 min attempt so for sure it won't look like me and I can spot a million thing wrong with it but oh well! Practice makes perfect!

Strength in Prayer

Close family friends are going through a tough time. I'm not personally religious but I do believe in mental strength. Allow yourself to believe in happiness and positivity. Stay strong.

December Dailies

I have always felt that sketching is very essential to honing your craft. You stop for a bit and you can lose it. Well, enough excuses and let's try to restart this journey.

I'm going to try to draw a quick sketch every day this month, I've been inspired by Olivia from her and her friend Agnes's NanoWriMo/Daily drawings in November to give this a shot myself.

I'm not a great artist, I don't really think I have that unique of an imagination. I can draw what is pre-designed quite easily, think inanimate objects, cartoons, or fruit or shoes or my thumbnail or something... ew..


Anyway, this is the month where I attempt to start drawing again. I'm not really determining a particular theme of what to draw but allow myself to switch from cartoons to realistic renditions, from pen to paint... the goal is to basically try.

Day 1!
