Today Sketch ::December 2011::
I realized that the best way to improve your drawing skill is by practicing, and sketching is one of a good choice since I’m quite lazy sometimes to turn on my computer to paint digitally. Sketch is so magical, you can get drown by someone else’s strokes or your own so deeply (at least I felt that way). Also, the interesting part of drawing traditionally is you could improve your skill more since you can’t undo the strokes you’ve already made (yeah well, you could use an eraser, but it’ll left some traces if you erase it over & over again).
So, here’s my latest sketch, took months to draw again since the previous one here:
To get myself back in track, I’ve made a promise to myself to do a sketch at least once a week
Parker, from Leverage TV Series. At first, I didn’t like her, the first image that popped in my head is: “what’s this, just another additional blonde girl in action movie, bleh!” But, it turns out she become my favorite character in that series! Nice character, unique & weird (tee-hee). Anyway, I took one of screenshots from third season there, the story is about Santa & Christmas, she wore a interesting costume there and yea it just took one second, voila! she became my inspiration
I didn’t mean to do a full sketch with shading and so on, but I guess I was drown into sketch back then…
It took approximately 3 hours to finish this piece. C & C are very welcome.
Enjoy and happy holiday!
