Mural style pen and ink portrait of Kurt Cobain
Well, since the time I started this blog, I’ve been focusing more on my writing, (Psst, 102 posts and only 9 sketches) than sketching. So, I’ve planned that tonight I’m going to do some quick thumbnail sketches using few reference photos that I had taken yesterday and maybe, then we’ll see which one would be appropriate for a finished ink sketch.
As, I work primarily with black ink, all the images are converted into grayscale. If you would particularly like to see one of this get converted into a sketch. Let me know. So far, I’m planning on the first one.
Well, it’s not actually a quick sketch or even a study. This one was my first attempt with acrylics on canvas. A finished painting by Nitesh Mishra.
Should I really write some eloquent description for this particular portrait of Angelina Jolie that I tried some five months ago? Honestly speaking, I do not want to. But I’ll end up doing it either way.
Another quick sketch done with Brustro Technical Pens. I do enjoy drawing landscapes just a little too much.
Well, as many of you might have known by now, I generally do not work with watercolors. So, I recently thought of changing that and well, this particular landscape is an ongoing attempt to destroy my watercolor phobia.
I guess, this week’s photo challenge prompt satisfaction was specifically made keeping me in mind (Oh, my narcissistic tendencies). Anyway, as most of you know nothing gives me more satisfaction than sketching. So, here we go again.
This one is done as a quick study (15 minutes, I know, showoff) to see whether I can convert this one into a painting or not. And let me say this, so far, I like it.
Do take some time to see my other works.
Lately, I’ve been focusing more on my writing than my sketching. You know, the whole #postaday, #dailyprompt and whatnot. In addition, writing a post takes maximum of an hour but sketching ends up requiring my undivided attention for a plethora of them. See, I can’t stop showing off even now.
Well, to mend the crime that I’ve committed against my sketchbook, here is my latest addition.
Interestingly, this blog has ended up making the writer in me dominate all other creative parts of my life. I guess, I just might end up becoming a better writer.
One of my favourite sketch done in the style I generally feel comfortable with. It’s unique in the regard that it was done with permanent blue marker without any pencil sketch unlike my most pen and ink sketches in which I first draw with the pencil and then trace on that using archival inks.
To be honest, I’m quite impressed with this one.
