I always carry some sort of camera around so that when I see something that interest me I can try and capture it. I don’t always take out the camera, and when I do I’m not always succesful. The photos that are join my collection of things I see.
Succes! My second week of drawing every day is complete without missing a day. While I am not always entirely happy with the results, since most are quick sketches of trying new things, I am happy that I kept up with posting them to instagram. Here’s day eight to fourteen of my #draweveryday sketches:
Right now I’m trying to just keep doing it and move through the book on fashion illustration. I know they are not very fancy drawings and are basicly the minimum I could do each day. But I’m doing them. Getting more of a rhythm drawing more often is a good thing, even if I tend to make these at the last possible minute right before I turn in at night. I should probably work on starting them earlier in the day/evening, just so that when I am done with the month and don’t have to do them I am still used to drawing at a more manageable moment in the day. But the main thing is to keep doing them and make it a full month.
The drawings of the first week are in this post.
I have succesfully completed the first week of my draw every day for a month goal. I’d started this goal before but was missing too many days so I decided to start counting anew. And on the second day I though that posting my sketches to my instagram (and twitter and tumblr) would be a good stimulation to keep up with it.
So here is a collection of my first #draweveryday week, days two to seven! I didn’t post the first day, because I hadn’t decided to start posting them yet, and I didn’t really like that sketch anyway.
Except for day four all of these are based on examples in the book on fashion illustration I got a while back. My goal is to get good at all sorts of different poses so I can draw believable women bodies. I plan to keep going through the different chapters of the book so I will get better at drawing clothing as well.
I still have trouble with hands and feet especially but I know there is a chapter on those coming up later in the book, so if it doesn’t take me too long to get there you’ll be seeing drawings of hands and feet as a part of my #draweveryday overview posts (which I plan to do for each week). I also feel like the legs I draw are too long, but this is sort of the case with the examples in the book too and I guess a consequense of stylized fashion ideals. Or maybe legs really are that long and I just don’t pay enough attention to them in real life. I also want to start trying some more ‘plus sized’ models, considering I want to be able to draw a more believable me.
