Dragon Profile (Daily Doodle)

dragon profile

Daily Doodle for Mon and Tues. I I haven’t drawn a dragon recently so I thought I would do one from my imagination. I usually do a new doodle every day but I couldn’t keep awake last night and  wanted to practice mark making, so I continued to mess around with it. 45 minutes to a hour

The 21 Day Drawing Challenge: All 21 Days

I participated in Von Glitschka‘s 21 Day Drawing Challenge (http://www.lynda.com/Design-Illustration-tutorials/21-Day-Drawing-Challenge/164144-2.html?utm_medium=ldc-partner&utm_source=SSPRC&utm_content=524&utm_campaign=CD14621&bid=524&aid=CD14621). Truthfully I was hoping to upload the new challenge drawing every day, but I have been swamped with homework this month. Being the genus that I am, I took 15 credit hours at 3 different colleges. I am almost done with a 8 week psychology course, and I spend around 6-9 hours a week on the darn thing. It’s driving me crazy. So I haven’t post in a month. But I did successfully finish the challenge. I have a friend join me on the challenge and it helped a lot. I enjoyed the challenge, my only gripe is that it was supposed to be for all skill levels but my non-artist friend struggled with it, I had to help him along and teach him techniques that the videos did not mention. I actually enjoyed teaching him. However, the course made him discover that he loves drawing and had decided to continue with it, which I am excited about. I definitely will do another monthly challenge after I finish dreaded Psychology get caught up on other things. (It will be a while).

Animal sketches 4-2

It’s funny that I spend so much time sketching animals at the zoo but then I never upload them here. Well that is stupid of me and it is going to change. Here are some animal sketches slight from my sketch book. Although I have 100s of pages of animals sketches. I refuse to torture my readers so I will only upload the best of my sketches.

My best sketches of My Tone Sketchbook (7-2013 to 8-2013)

Finished a tone sketchbook. Out of hundreds of sketches i did, I picked my favorites. I have switched to markers to build confidence in my line work and simply because I love the look.

I made this stupid rule when playing video games: every half hour I must take a break and sketch something from the game. So there is a couple sketches of McPixel. It’s a very short game. The weirdest, strangest, most demented adventure game I’ve played so far. I was very addictive and ended way too soon. Also a few drawings of dragons, strangely enough out of the 100s of sketches I did, these are the only dragon drawings I did around that period, yet they are some of the best that I’ve done. I also sketched a tree from my house and a barn from my imagination. And that horse… I need to practice drawing equines more.

Next’s weeks sketchbook drawings will be ones I did a the zoo.

Update: Image cropped and uploaded in right orientation

Update: I tried the WordPress app on my smart phone. It screwed up everything. It double posted and uploaded the image upside down. I won’t be using it again, that’s for sure.. Image is fixed now. Sorry about that

For today’s doodle I thought I would try my hand at drawing a dragon in charcoal. About a hour. Ran out of fixate afraid of moving page.

A different dragon – ipad drawing

20130616-232940.jpg

I been drawing quite a bit of dragons that are more like wild animals,I wanted to take a shot at drawing one that was mire of a ‘person’ and have a personality yet still resembled the fire breathing monster we all know and love. Maybe this dragon was once a man and is now struggling with is new body, or perhaps is a domestic dragon that is kind to humans and is like a loyal pet to them. I wanted to try this with out resorting to anthropomorphism. Here is the fished drawing. I struggled with this one, changing various features, over and over. Im not quite sure if i like this drawing or not. Painted in Procreate
