Sketch 25

kaiki

Here is a sketch of a friend's Christmas tree. The perspective of the tree is off because I kept moving around due to the environment I was in. The small cylinder next to the sketch is what I would have done if the perspective was correct. It is odd, I like how I did the shades in the background, but only on the left side. A delicate touch is proving, once again, to be more effective then thick heavy lines. Something I will have to work on and master using the microns...until I start to experiment with other types of brush pens.

Sketch 24

Here is one of my super-fast super-simple sketches. The plant came out alright. So did the bow, yet I failed on the subtle curved lip of the pot. I think it was one of those curves that only some very delicate hatching & shading could have pulled off. Also in regards to the surface next to the plant. It is again one of those moments where I am learning that less is more. I didn't need to have those long lines all across the surface, some simple hatching on the edges probably would have worked just as well.

Sketch 23

kaiki

Here is sketch 23. To be honest, I rushed this one. I gave hardly any thought to perspective, form, or anything. I was just trying to do a drawing in 20 minutes. For all of that though. I did like how the plate & surface came out. That's all folks.

Sketch 22

kaiki

Here is a sketch where I did not actually draw what I saw. I started with a from life drawing but it started raining and it canceled that part of the drawing. From there I just winged the rest. I liked how it came out though. I will try to continue this style in the short term, if only to work on my hatching/cross hatching.

Sketch 21

kaiki

Her i a sketch that came out...differently then I thought it would. The perspective is mostly correct as I was standing on an overpass looking down at the scene. Though when I got the bottom of the wall around the "tall grass thing" I realized I had messed up and had to draw a little pond looking thing. Hopefully it worked out. What about yall? Does it look like I had no idea what I was doing at the bottom of the picture?

sketch 20

kaiki

Here are some more sketches from ye olde sketchbook. This was an exercise in perspective and depth that I believe succeeded. It may not be perfect but I think it does a convincing job of portraying a hallway. The floor is a mess but I have no skill in drawing straight lines X_X

sketch 19

kaiki

Here is a sketch I did in my old Canson sketchpad while my drawing pad is in the shop. I think I pulled off some atmospheric perspective in this drawing. Though some of the kona beads came out too flat in one dimension. Something to work on, Also I think I like the lighter touch of the earlier beads. But to my eyes they seem flatter. Flat and pretty or rounded and ugly. There must be a way to solve this problem.

Sketch 18

kaiki

Here is my third attempt at using dip pen with ink. I thought it turned out better then I expected, I think. I wish I had more time to finish the piece but you work with what you have. From my last post, the quality of your dip pen really makes a difference. If/when I get more into dip pens I will need to buy a high quality wooden dip pen. Though one downside with the dip pen is that since you can alter the tone of the ink I am driven to make 6 or more different tones so I can get the perfect representation of the tone of the object.

Sketch 17

kaiki


Here is a new sketch I did with a dip pen and ink. I really enjoy the dip pen compared to the microns, though the dip pen requires more space to use what with the ink and what not. Also it seems that a high quality dip pen really makes a difference. I bought a 1-2 dollar pen and the top is splitting causing inconsistent line width. After the holidays I will try and invest into a proper setup.
