September Draw Along WIP - I'll add more here as I go along.
So about 4/5 hours so far. Sorry about the crappy photograph It's A3 and I didn't want to stitch the WIP's together but I will for the final drawing
WIP 1 and 2 - I think about 9-10 hours on it so far and I'm guessing about halfway there
WIP3 - This one is my third and final WIP. I think I have about another 8 hours or so to get this finished so hopefully in a couple of days Again, sorry about the really poor quality photo, the final will be scanned and much clearer
I'm finally getting round to making the speed drawing video. This is a little start and I thought it would be a good idea to ask if the video quality looked alright before doing more? It's really tricky getting the camera at a decent angle and not getting my hands in the way!
WIP1 - About 45 mins of drawing. WIP2 - It turns out, I really don't like recording me drawing even one teeny bit It's so difficult to try and not flip the paper round and round the way I normally do. So, I will keep recording but I don't think I'll do it all, I'll do each element of the drawing, but for the skin etc, once I've done one part, the rest is the same, so no point in sending everyone to sleep WIP3 - I'm about 5 hours in now, I'm guessing another 10 or so to go. WIP4 - I'll make this the last WIP now. I'm at 8-9 hours. Sorry about the dirty marks, I need to clean the scanner .. again! It's also scanning a bit weird because of all the white space, hopefully when she's done I can get a better one
I'll add a few more WIPs here as I go as always. Paula
There's not a lot there yet, but I'll keep adding to this same submission as always the more I do. I've darkened this a little so you can see it, it's very pale at the moment, I'm just laying down some base layers.
WIP update: About 6 hours in now and I can't decide whether to do the snow globe in graphite or colour. Help???
FINAL WIP update - I'm guessing about 3 more hours so far and this will be the last WIP, it shouldn't take too long to finish off now. It looks very odd right now
I have a LOT of things on the go, so just incase anyone is waiting on a prize or drawing from me, I promise, your all on my list and I'll get there eventually
A couple of WIP's of my new drawing. I'll pop all the reference details in the finished drawing
About 4 hours on this one so far
UPDATE1 - Another couple of hours on this one, I'll just do one more WIP after this. The scanner has started to freak out at the dark and it's all going weird, but we'll see UPDATE2 - Last WIP on this one. It shouldn't take too long now.
Quick Note: I was asked if the black on this is a digital edit, no it's not. I don't add ANYTHING digitally (if I did it would be in my comments) .... it's just not my thing. You can see at the bottom left my first layer of graphite, that's only there because of the negative hair and I need to erase, it's 2B and applied messily, it wont be there for long. The dark in the top left corner is 8B Mars lumo, it is jet black and completely opaque and covers the paper like a thick layer of charcoal. On top is 6B applied using circulism. No digital, no edit, just patience
I've not drawn anything for days so decided to try this months draw-along reference to motivate me again.
As always, I'll just update this WIP with more as I go along
Update: Changed the format of the WIP's, I couldn't see what they looked like and I drew them Just one more WIP for this one ... so I can make my WIPs a square Colours are kinda wonky again but I'll fix it for the final one.
WIP1 - Anyway, this floating eye will be Jensen Ackles for my friend Annika We're doing a trade Annika made me the handsome fella below I can't wait to get him home
WIP2 - A little update with a real WIP this time About 4 hours in so far. Hopefully he looks less like Marilyn Manson now
WIP3 - Another few hours work, still a lot to go, but he's taking shape
WIP4 - This is going to be the final WIP. I so want to get this finished ... but there's just not enough time at the moment. Still, he's getting there and it's a lot of fun to draw No one area is complete yet and I'm guessing another 6-7 hours until he's done.
I'm in a bit of a muddle at the moment, I don't know why. I've tried to draw two ATC's that I'm doing as competition prizes so many times and they just never work .... someone stole my hands I think
I've included my little pencil case that goes everywhere with me in the photo, the pencils and the blue tac are all that's been in use so far. I don't use very much other than this lot really.
Thanks for taking a look
P.S. As always, I won't post a million WIPS, I'll just add to this deviation as I go.
This is likely going to be the next drawing I finish, but there are a few on the go
Hoping that posting some very dodgy looking WIPs might motivate me to get a move on!
WIP2 - So, I have a story, this started life as Hilary Duff. I almost binned it since it looks nothing like HD, but then I decided I quite like her anyway, so now she is just girl based on a reference Also, note to self - USE A GRID WHEN DRAWING CELEBS
WIP3 - Darkened the background some more and made a start on that hair. I'll just do one more WIP after this one now.
WIP4 - dA have made changes again! The edit thing is all weird Anyway this is the last WIP for this one and again I apologise for the photo
A bit closer - it's kinda blurred but I'll scan the final one
*I don't ever upload more than one WIP, but I will keep adding to this as I go*
