Mabel Pines

I've started watching Gravity Falls (and I'm loving it!) and came across some model sheets of Mabel & Dipper Pines. I gave drawing Mabel a shot first, and I'm pretty happy with the results (it took a couple of drawings to warm into the style - the top right was my first)

Beaker

New sketchbook which means new self-portrait! This is my best impression of a muppet.

Hands #04


EVEN more hands (and this isn't even the last of them!)

Worked my way through this great resource for animated hands.

Les Mis

Anne Hathaway in the trailer for Les Mis. I originally wanted to draw her portraying Selina Kyle but I couldn't find any decent images to reference. This was a great substitute though!

Hands #01

 
HANDS! I thought it would be quite handy (pun completely intended) to improve my hand drawing. This is the first of many sets I've done so far; the first 2 and a half pages were all using reference photos found at this wonderful website (I tried doing cartoon versions next to the more realistic hands), after realising I didn't quite know which features of the hand needed emphasising for a line-only drawing, I fell back to using some already hand-drawn reference, courtesy of this deviantart entry.

Caricature dump #01


Trying to practice caricaturing faces... took drawings I've done already and tried to exaggerate key features to varying degrees of success. I clearly need a lot more practice but there are a couple I don't mind (ie. 2nd image top row)

Jackie

After starting season 4 of Nurse Jackie I really wanted to draw Edie Falco with any of the incredibly emotive and complex emotions she portrays. This didn't turn out so well, but I may retry it again later. Still posting it thought, even if it's just for tracking my progress!

Figure drawing dump #04

So I've been a bit MIA with posting again... but I've been very consistently drawing so I've finally scanned in the last 3 or so weeks of stuff and will put more up when I find a chance.

In the meantime here's some figure drawing sketches to show my slow but nevertheless existent progress. I believe these were 60 secs a pop.

Mother of Dragons



Not my best work (especially the wonky eyes) but this is Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones (played by Emilia Clarke).

Figure drawing dump #03

Some more figure drawings. I've been doing a lot but they get quite repetitive so I thought I'd pick out a single page of ones I was happy with to show progress. These are 60 second sketches. I'm slowly feeling more confident in speed drawing, and am finding over time I'm progressively adding more details (ie. I've noticed it really helps drawing a couple of lines to define the ribcage more obviously for certain poses).

Reflection

Another self-portrait... I've decided I'm going to do one per sketchbook now (I'm onto my 4th A4 one since this new wave of drawing).

More Ariel...

I watched The Little Mermaid again recently and wanted to try my hand at drawing Ariel again. I think I'm getting more consistent at matching her facial proportions. Practice practice practice!!

Back to it...

Been a bit quiet with this blog for the last month but I have been drawing, just not posting. Finally have a chance to catch it all up. I'll hopefully be a bit more consistent again now that life has become a bit less hectic.

Peter and the Wolf

Tried drawing some poses from "Peter and the Wolf", using choreography from the ballet I've done of the story for years. I'm hoping to try doing the same thing but with the figures less human-like. Baby steps.
