More from the retro cartoon book. This time I actually drew on real paper.
So weird, my pencil felt awkward while drawing, and then when I went to erase the pencil marks after inking, the ink started smearing. WTF? Turns out I had been drawing on the inside front cover, not on one of the pieces of paper. It has a slick coding, so the ink wasn’t drying. I’m […]
Honestly, the only reason I’m continuing to put these up here is because if I ever become a famous artist these will be worth lots of money. I believe I’ve come to the conclusion that drawing anything is hard. Even cute little cartoons with less than a dozen lines. Just to be thorough, the one […]
Really late trip to Anchorage means I didn’t really think about drawing today. So here’s just a quick five-minute sketch of some Alaskan trees. I will be back to cartooning tomorrow, I’m pretty sure. 🙂
I think for the next week or so I am just going to try and copy some of the drawings in the retro cartoon book that I have. I’m also going to move to a table after this. Until now I’ve just been holding the sketchpad in my hands, and I think I might do […]
I thought if I drew 100 circles I would get really good at it. But I just got bored really fast and switched to ovals. And got bored with that. So then I just doodled. I’m pretty sure that tomorrow all of my artistic talent will burst forth in full bloom. Pretty sure.
I just decided to play around with some cartoon eyes tonight. I finally got a copy of the retro cartoon book that I had been missing for the last two or three eons, and I’m going to start going through that. Also, as suggested by Lesley, I’m going to be drawing a bunch of circles and […]
Walking by the hospital the other day I saw these 5-petaled flowers and thought, “I should try to draw one.” Wish I had taken a picture or at least stopped walking long enough to really look at them. But if you stand back and squint at this picture, that’s what they looked like.
I skipped the pen step tonight because I wanted to get this uploaded before midnight. It might behoove me to start earlier in the day and not wait until 11:30 at night.
I think I need to spend more than 10 minutes or so trying to draw. In fact, instead of drawing a picture a day, I should modify that to something like draw for 30 minutes a day, culminating in a picture. Anyway, here is today’s picture and this time I played around using crosshatching for […]
