Sketchdump #48 by Ahkward Sketchdump #48 by Ahkward
The majority of this is thesis work and other homework and my cats. :l Some commissions.

More sketchdumps >> ahkward.deviantart.com/gallery…

I feel bad in being so quiet lately in the work I've been posting. I want to post more sketches and WIP, but I don't know how people feel about that. I have so many sketches, mainly commissions, that I am working on that I'd flood your inboxes if I posted everything. So for now I'll likely just post finished work when I can and then post these sketchdumps. I'm pretty active every week on Instagram, and so if you want more updates and WIP you can follow me there

I always love seeing updates from you, even if I don't comment much. :)


Btw, your green stone is malachite.  Sorry if this comes across as nitpicky.

Where did you get that book? Or is it a modified sketch pat? (the Art of Seeing thing)

I got it in a book Bazaar, but you could easily find it online -> www.amazon.com/Zen-Seeing-Draw…

What a nice dump!! I just wanted to leave a comment here because I remember you speaking about scientific botany drawings and you have one-ish in here. I just wanted to let you know that scientific diagrams are typically considered more professional if all of the labels are on the sides and use as many horizontal lines as possible. If getting the label to line up with the item being labeled is not an option, a diagonal line may be applied by bending the straight one. Here are some examples. Hope it helps!

Yes, I am looking into botanical work, but those are far from me trying to be professional. Those were sketchbook assignments for our class that he asked us to keep informal and loose. However I did not know that and it makes sense, keeping it neat and clean. Thanks for the info and heads up.

Thank you for sharing! Those feathers are drawn so gorgeously and it was cool to know you put real gold flake in your drawing! I love these little windows into the process.

I love feathers, maybe more so than plants. Well gold flake and pan gold are different textures. I wish I knew how to apply real gold leaf. For now I use it only as the pan paint.

I do wish I'd post more WIP, but I feel people would not want to see them.

I can only speak for myself, but I really love them. Sometimes seeing other artists' process helps me refine mine. Plus I'm the nerdy girl that binge watches How It's Made because I like knowing. Gold leaf isn't too hard to apply but it requires a lot of heavy duty paper. I've only used it a few times for school but it was simple.
