A pig

Sketch #18

Sketch #18

Today’s sketch is a pig from photo reference. I think it turned out pretty good. Obviously it could be a lot more detailed, but I think I nailed the proportions pretty well.

This was also a digital sketch, this time using my wacom tablet and the GIMP.

An eagle

 

Sketch #9

Sketch #9

So, I missed a couple of days of sketching. I gotta make that up somehow, but here’s Monday’s sketch (late, I know). It’s a bald eagle from photo reference. I should probably start drawing from life too, although photos are good practice.

I think the main problem with this eagle is that it should be wider. Also perhaps the top of the head should be flatter. Also it’s hard to make it look feathery, so I didn’t really try that hard. I feel like that’s the sort of detail I’m just not very interested in attempting to produce at this point.

More doggies!

Sketch #4.1

Sketch #4.1

Only today, three dogs for the price of one! The one on the left is a more accurate rendition of the dog in the original photo. The front is almost perfect apart from the nose, but I made the body a little too long and the back got rotated a few degrees clockwise. Individual parts seem to be of the right size though, and the dog looks like an adult now, unlike my first sketch which looked more like a puppy.

The dog on the right ist just a little doodle. A stylized version of the dog I drew just for fun. :-)

A dog

Sketch #4

Sketch #4

A white husky dog drawn from photo reference. I seem to have chopped his/her neck short. I noticed that long before finishing but I had no room on the paper to fix it. Perhaps I should had started over at that point? Perhaps I should be drawing smaller in order to have room for mistakes. Also I think the grey part on the right ear is probably too big. Looks strange.

A fish

Sketch #3

Sketch #3

A cute fishie fish. I decided not to do too much shading on this one and concentrate on the lines and shapes. Used a photo reference once again.

A frog

Sketch #2

Sketch #2

A continuation in my series of animals drawn from photo reference. The frog has a weird pose. I think it’s in the middle of a jump. I think I didn’t quite get proportions of the frog right, and its feet look strange. I like how the head turned out though.

A bird

Sketch #1

Sketch #1

So, after reinstalling WordPress, it seems like image uploading is actually working now. My first sketch is a menacing seagull I drew from photo reference that I found here: http://static.open.salon.com/files/secpic_seagull1_b1233704043.jpg

I’m by no means completely happy with the picture. That’s the reason I started this blog. I want to draw more, hopefully get some feedback, and improve in the process!

Enjoy the bird.
