I've been doodling for years, but I've had a hard time getting myself to practice for more than a few days before I put it off.
I'm not sure that I've ever put in enough dedicated practice to actually see major improvement, but it certainly feels like I'm on a plateau right now.
So hopefully, by starting a sketchbook here, I'll be able to motivate myself to keep going.
So here are a few sketches from the last couple of days. I'm going to try and keep it up to at least one sketch a day.
This is supposed to be Patrick Stewart, but I think I transformed him into John Locke, somehow. :/ He's too wide and the head's not curved enough at the top.
Really struggled with the shapes on this Sheridan. So much junk strapped to the hull and turret, it was hard to make out the shapes underneath. Excuses.
If it's not clear enough by now, I find tanks and planes fascinating.
Any tips, besides keep at it?
Some still life. Really had a hard time giving the tape measure the proper heft. Doesn't look nearly solid and bulky enough, and I'm not sure why.
Woo, I made it a month with fairly consistent sketching. Feels good to start filling up a sketchbook.
Enjoyed working with pen, I think making permanent marks helped me to take my time and place my lines precisely.
So how'd I do? Anything obvious I'm doing wrong? Going to keep at it.
Some attempts at timed quick gestures, about two minutes each, a gun and a wrecked car, and two faces.
