Yesterday I decided to do an image search for “whale”, found a photo of a killer whale and did a quick sketch of it. This is a bit of a change after all that colouring. I still like to colour, but I think that I want to do more sketches and drawing exercises.
I love dragons, and I love to draw them. I drew this dragon after having watched a video tutorial. The pattern on the skin of the dragon however is my very own. I used markers and coloured pencils on top of them, and markers again.
I did this quick sketch following a drawing tutorial on YouTube. As you can see it I did it on a piece of scrap paper – you can see the print on the back of the paper shining through. And – oops – you can see some of the pencil strokes which I actually wanted to erase. Well, seeing the piece on my screen makes me notice all the things I overlooked and should have done before putting the sketch on the scanner.
This is more a preliminary sketch than an actual piece of art. It has been drawn on a cheap piece of paper with a ballpoint pen, and coloured with markers. But I must say that I’m quite pleased with the result all in all.
Just playing with patterns and colours. Now I think that I can call this done!
This was done very quickly on a piece of paper. Although I not quite sure whether to add some colours on the tail and head feathers I think that I don’t want to colour the whole bird. This dancing bird is something like a symbol of the coming spring to me, with its dancing pose and the bright colours.
