I’m back! Still can’t transfer my photos from my phone to laptop through USB connection, but I discovered that I can transfer through the ASUS app Sharelink. SO – I’m halfway through my Monologue notebook. Thinking whether I should get another one soon or to upgrade to Stillman & Birn or Strathmore notebook. The reason? Some pages of the Monologue soft sketch book won’t absorb the paint as shown below. (The hair on the left drawing).
Argh. I hate the effect! But still, progress is still progress. As usual, the realistic portraits are referenced from Pinterest. The anime-ish ones are mine. My watercolor set is Prang (unless otherwise stated), and I use my Craftdoodle waterbrushes. 🙂
Left: I like the hands / Right: Galaxy hair without the white speckles yet.
The left drawing doesn’t look the same as the reference HAHA.
Left: My Sola ♥ / Right: I don’t like the final render huhu
Left: I used my Reeves watercolor pan set here / Right: Loose pencil sketch with loose rendering. 😐
Then I tried fashion drawings. Haha.
Left: I already posted this on the last Monologue post / Right: I tried blending the skin by adding water on dried paint.
Left: I used my officemate’s Simbalion watercolor set. Too powdery for me / Right: Kimono girl sketch.
Left: Self portrait with light wash / Right: Sketch of Sona, a League of Legends hero.
Left: Progress artwork with wet on wet technique. / Right: I tried to render with more shadows. Doesn’t look like the original though!
I’m now into drawing leaves as shown here. HAHAHA.
The first & last image are my latest drawings. Not sure if I should finish the left one. I like the wash effect but I was supposed to put more detail on the lanterns. The right one is still unfinished. It needs more leaves in the background.
I’m glad that I can still paint. ♥ Mostly during break times in the office. Speaking of which, I need to do those “requested” portraits soon. Argh.
Until next time?
