WIP one of November Draw Along. I'll add WIPs here as always as I go. I may be a little while on this one, I'm squeezing in little bits here and there among other things :phew:

This is showing a lot bigger than it is in real life, I think the eye is about 3cm wide on paper.

Materials are:
Faber Castell Polychromos
Watercolour Hot Pressed Paper

UPDATE: This is the last WIP now and the colours have scanned a bit weird :confused: The first two WIPs are almost exactly like the original, though I kind of like the colours of the wonky scan :giggle:

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 :D

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 :eager: Again, sorry about the really poor quality photo, the final will be scanned and much clearer :nod:

This months #Draw-Along WIP1

WIP2 - another hour or so. This will be my last WIP for this one :heart:

Thought I'd give pastels a try for the second time, I hope number 2 is not a pastel disaster like my first attempt :la:

2 hours so far (not including my sketch) - who knows how many more, I'm not used to pastels, but they're fast!!!

I'll put all credits in the final drawing and as always will add more WIPs to this one as I go along :heart:

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!

Video Link > [link]

WIP1 - About 45 mins of drawing.
WIP2 - It turns out, I really don't like recording me drawing even one teeny bit :no: 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.

The first of my WIPs for the December :icondraw-along:

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 :p

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 :nod:

UPDATE: Just another WIP, this will be the last one, I'm going to try and finish her tonight.

This is just a tiny bit of my next drawing, it will be a half body drawing when it's done.

Sorry about the rubbish scan, I'll get a better one for the final drawing.

So, hopefully you can tell this is going to be Liv Tyler :fingerscrossed:

Happy Holidays :iconsantalaplz:

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 :heart:

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 :P
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 :D

WIP1 - Anyway, this floating eye will be Jensen Ackles for my friend Annika :iconjustabeautifuldream: We're doing a trade :la: Annika made me the handsome fella below :squee: I can't wait to get him home :giggle:

WIP2 - A little update with a real WIP this time :) About 4 hours in so far. Hopefully he looks less like Marilyn Manson now :giggle:

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 :la: 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 :shakefist:

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 :dalove:

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 :D Also, note to self - USE A GRID WHEN DRAWING CELEBS :shakefist:

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 :confused: Anyway this is the last WIP for this one and again I apologise for the photo :P

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*

Thanks for taking a look :heart:

Starting off with a pretty basic WIP.

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 :)

:icondraw-along:

Update: Changed the format of the WIP's, I couldn't see what they looked like and I drew them :P Just one more WIP for this one ... so I can make my WIPs a square :ashamed: Colours are kinda wonky again but I'll fix it for the final one.
