Welcome to my s~A(R)T~urday linky party – today:  WIP speed drawing

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

~ Andy Warhol ~

Acouple of sARTurdays ago I showed you a fully colored manga drawing and how I started it as a simple pencil sketch in my sketchbook. Your feedback was terrific!

As were your responses to the short video I posted last Saturday with little how-to of photo art. By the way, I promise to another one and to include a voice over and improve the video’s quality so that you may actually read the on-screen. Got to figure out the darn’ YouTube compression…

YouTube is a wonderland of just about any information that you would ever (not) want to see. I am watching how-tos and drawing inspiration on a constant basis, especially while I am working out on the elliptical.  One (of the many) inspiring artists is Jazza of ‘Draw with Jazza’, a young guy from Oz (my 2nd home country) and on top of all the drawing videos, he also holds a monthly drawing challenge for his community. I don’t think that I will actually take part in it, however, the theme sounded just too good:

Dragons vs. Kittens

I nearly despaired trying to draw the dragon, still am not 100 % happy, but for a 1st try – not too bad.

First up is again the pencil drawing I did in my sketchbook, which I transferred via Sketchbook App (it records transparency) to my iPad. In ProCreate App I went over the pencil with a pencil and then ink brush, added details and… a lamb, monster, seal, well – wait till you see the 2nd kitten appear in the bottom right corner. What a struggle it was to get that kitten right – quite hilarious to watch. Maybe I should have cut it out of the video, but I wanted to keep it real. Mind you I was drawing without a reference and in the end I decided on a different pose and that worked. Except for the fact that for quite a while I had a three-legged kitten – hahaha – oh well.

I also started coloring, but have not finished, that is where it stops for now. There is much more to do, yet I thought I let you be a part of my WIP and hope you will watch and enjoy the video (btw – it’s quality is way better than last week’s).

Thanks for watching and have a great weekend!





p.s. I am on the road for the most part of the weekend, so I may be even slower than usual to check out your art – but I will, promise!
