Drawing is something I’ve always done, whether on a relaxing Saturday morning or just doodles in my notebook during class. I’ve never had an art class in my life, unless you count elementary school art classes. I just grabbed a pencil and began drawing things I love. I have to tell you my first pictures were horrible, but that never stopped me. Drawing for me was really just practice makes perfect. Now I’m working on drawing people, and I’m focusing on the difficult features like eyes. Here are some of my sketches that I’ve been working on lately:
I also love following artist blogs who share their process on the internet. An example of this is sleeplessportfolio. She posts pictures of her drawings as she goes and then posts the finished product. I also watch youtube videos of artist drawing famous people in a sped up time, my favorite is Heather Rooney. Watching her draw really helps me understand the process.
