“Face” Cedar Park, 2017

こんばんは。

Today I drew a couple faces, based off of some artwork from one of my favorite digital artists, Ilya Kuvshinov. I love the style of his faces, so I used one of his drawings as a reference and tried to draw the eyes, then the rest of the face and hair. It took a lot of drawing and erasing, but I finally drew something that I thought wasn’t too bad.

From the pencil sketch, I traced a couple copies, then inked the top one using a Micron pen and applied watercolor. The other one I just used my Uni-Ball AIR pen. There are a few things I am not happy with, but overall, it’s not a bad first effort.

I am going to try to draw on my own, using some of the techniques I learned from this drawing. We’ll see how it goes! The more I draw, the more I realize I have a long way to go.

“Fuchico Omiyage” Cedar Park, 2017

こんばんは。Today Mariko and Bay returned from their three-week+ long trip to Japan with suitcases full of omiyage (gifts) and food in tow. One of the things I received was a new Fuchico “Japan” series figure. It’s pretty fun, silly, and cool! ❤️

While I was waiting at the airport for them to arrive, I made a small sketch in my Traveler’s Notebook. As I was sketching the Jeep, it started to drive away, so I had to hurry and then try to remember what it looked like as I hadn’t quite finished. But I think it turned out ok. I just wish the ink were waterproof so I could watercolor over it. Oh well. Maybe I need to get some waterproof ink for my Kakuno fountain pen in the future.
