Here’s a assortment of pages from my recently finished June to July sketchbook, it’s a mix of observational + imagination drawings as usual. Sketching is no doubt where I feel the most free when making art, there’s something really exhilarating about using just lines. I don’t think ill ever grow tired of sketching with a 0.5 uniball pen. I fill up hundreds of pages like these but never feel like anyone online cares to see that many of them, but at least I can dump a few here.
Heres a miscellaneous dump of some stuff I’ve done lately, or stuff that I can be bothered to upload here.I finished a small looping animation for ‘Loop de Loop‘. Im insanely rusty with animating and this was my first time using adobe animate. Also, having my Youtube subscribers shoot up from under 100 to 15k+ over the last month has been baffling.
The older I get and (hopefully) the better I get at art, the more opinionated I get over art things. One thing that I believe with all my heart is the importance of life drawing. It seems some beginner artists are wholly focused on just attaining technical skills, but there is an emotional side comes thru the acting, energy you convey in a drawing. When you draw people in the world around you, you should be observing their movements, their quirks, their character. Same with animals, they have traits we can relate to. I had an awesome sunday sketching at the zoo today, and of course, I couldn’t feel entitled to do a little preaching unless I put in the hours. Keep sketching Peace and later~
