I have been trying to get back into drawing more again, but the bigger pieces still require a bit more coaxing. I think it may be reading constantly about the state of the planet that is draining me, or the fact that I have to play teacher during the day… or maybe it’s just that time of year where I just don’t really wanna do anything big…
I really miss you guys. I miss the stream. I miss social media lol.
You never really know just how big a part online social situations play in your life until they are removed.
I just love sketch cards. I really do! And when I have the opportunity to trade them with others makes it so much sweeter! I was invited to join a swap for the Legend of Zelda themed cards. I am not great with color… but I tried anyway! They were accepted and will be on the way to their new homes very soon!
I have had some real trouble in getting back to what I love. My heart is longing to go back on vacation lol. This place really isn’t that good for me… It is kind of wearing me down a bit. But today, I had the help from some social media! I sent out the request for some topics to draw. These are what came of it!
I keep seeing, over and over again, that people are suggesting to use hairspray to fix their art from smudging. That is the ONLY THING IN ART that crawls under my skin.
DON’T use hairspray if you value your art at all. You are worth more than that. Don’t cheap out because you don’t want to spend one or two more euro or dollars to get the good stuff. Fixative isn’t that damned expensive.
Tools: Faber-Castell pencils and Schoellershammer paper. I used several brushes and a kneaded eraser. The electric device is an eraser, but I changed the eraser head with a small piece of kneaded eraser.
These are the sketch cards created during my 2 hour Twitch Stream today. I would love to see some familiar faces when I stream, so come give me a follow and you can get notifications when I go live.
Would you like to be an artwork? Would you like to be featured in an art book?
I am trying to get back into the swing of things since the vacation. 5 weeks off will do a lot of damage to the motivation! I joined in a couple of swaps over at iATCs and this was the result.
I do love a good cult film! Here are some fan arts on sketch cards
