It’s been some time since I posted anything related to drawing on this blog. I noticed that my sketch pad is nearly full. I’ll certainly need to replace it soon with a fresh, new one from my local arts and crafts store. I’ve always found it enjoyable to go back and skim through my sketch pads when they’re full. Primarily I do this because it’s nice to see the advancement in skill apparent in the drawings from the first page to the last. Sometimes it’s really quite painful to look on my older work. I recently scanned through my drawing pad and thought I’d post some highlights from its contents. These are a few of my favorites.
|A WWI dogfighter. Perhaps inspired by the film Flyboys.|
Meant to be simplistic. A cigar-chomping sharpshooter.
|I have no words...|
|"Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!"|
More simplicity. Apocalypse survivors just chillin’...
So there you have it! They’re not in any particular order, and some are much older than others. Some have a more finished look to them, while others are sketches and never meant to be touched up or given complication of any kind. I do so adore the look of black and white pencil sketches and drawings, though. I think pencil drawings may be my favorite visual arts media available to mankind. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to do some more drawings soon.
