More sketching…

IMG_2523

It’s one of those weekend – that I am trying to sketch again. The thing about sketching is that – I must continue to sketch, not about practice but about getting the experience to be able to discover the style!

By getting more experience – I would be able to look at what I am good at, what I am bad at, and in the next sketch is for me to improve. Every sketch is masterpiece – for good or for bad 🙂

Shitty Perspective

The sketch I did today is another try at sketching the same thing. My problem is of course is how to I view perspective. The converging lines is just so difficult for me to translate into my sketches. If you look at the sketch below – despite using guides, I am still shit at that.

Fine – time to do some research and learn how to do converging verticals. Not so easy – but i guess with more experience I would be able to handle it better.

To detail or not to detail

I don’t have a lot of patience, but I do like details. It’s fun to draw details – especially playing with different pens. But when I get bored, I will just screw the whole sketch up. I guess it’s about getting the balance and planning myself ahead. Like for the sketch today – it was just a spur of the moment. Spent less than 30 mins to come out with the sketch. Ha ha.

Colors

Okay – I am just shit at this. I don’t even know how to use water colours, don’t know how to mix. Amazing that I am able to come out with something. I kinda got the hang of it. I guess in more sketches – I would be able to discover the colours and style that I like.

Summary

I need to continue to focus on building my skills. Sketch more… and I’ll get better 🙂

 

I need to get a watercolor sketch book!!!

Sketching is fun. And I am not good at it but would like to continue to try to do it so that I get better at it!

The sketch book that I have is nice and big but it’s not usable for watercolor!! Look at what happen. 

Need to drop by art friends later today to pickup some small water proof sketch book. Not so big I supposed 😁

Trying out water colour

Just testing how watercolor will work on my sketch test. Actually the sketch is a failure because of the perspective. Will continue to sketch on it to figure out what’s the right perspective. It’s the portion on the right of the Capitol building that’s screwy. I do like the smaller details as it creates a nice impact to the image. A pain to do though. Had to use magnifying glass!

Sometimes its fun to sketch when you don’t feel like working

I have about 1 hour before meeting my sister for breakfast. Pretty hungry as I didn’t have sahur today. So decided to do some sketching to practice on my hand control and perspective. Don’t think I want to whip out my water color in office though!!

Here’s the original switch box. Couldn’t really decide on whether to draw the cables, and I was drawing it I lost focus. Quite a lot of improvement that I can see. Most importantly is patience. 

I really like the texture when using very thin pen like the 0.03mm that’s used to texture the cable. Create a 3D like feel. 😁😁
