This was a productive drawing weekend for me! Well, at least Friday & Sunday were – Saturday not so much, but I was busy costume shopping.
On Sunday, I finished up my rhinoceros drawing (you can compare with the WIP version here). It’s a baby rhino, by the way, if his horn looks unusually small. I was pretty pleased with the WIP as I left it, but I wanted to try adding more shading. Of course, I was scared of ruining it, but I at least had that scan saved if I felt bad about the finished drawing. Over all, though, while I didn’t add a ton more detail, I think this one came out pretty well. I probably could have added more? I don’t know.
On Friday while at a meeting, I drew my left hand:
This is not my best hand. Then again, it’s also not the worst. But I feel like it’s one of my least favorites, alas. I need to draw more hands.
Also on Friday, I bought a few new art supplies, including some sepia Micron pens. Because I was feeling especially productive on Sunday, I have two more WIPs, both done in my new sepia pens! The first is a goldfish:
The sepia is so dark in this it looks almost black, but if you look, it’s definitely a dark brown. I love it. And I’m liking the drawing so far, but I’m a little anxious about adding more detail to this one, particularly the partially translucent fins.
And finally, I attempted to draw Pluto, King of the Kuiper Belt:
For those who don’t know, I’m a total space geek & I had literally been waiting for years for New Horizons to arrive at Pluto. And then the day came, & it was more than I’d hoped for! Pluto is gorgeous, and it loves you. I will attempt to finish this one, but I’m not sure how I’m feeling about it. I might have to attempt another drawing in the future, & possibly other space-themed drawings. The planets & dwarf planets are awesome, but so are the moons. Like Europa! Or Ganymede! Or Triton!
