Weekend inky drawings: Baby Rhino, Goldfish, Pluto & a Hand

Baby Rhinoceros in Ink, 10.18.15

Baby Rhinoceros in Ink, 10.18.15

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.

Side view of hand

Now I’m back with another skeleton hand – this time a side view of the right hand.  Like the last one, I’m pretty pleased with this.  I think my shading has improved on these particular drawings that I copy from my anatomy book (I’m drawing other paintings/drawings of bones).  Add some flesh to this & I’m sure it would be tricky – I’ll have to keep this kind of pose in mind the next time I draw my own hands.

I’m back with a hand drawing!

Hand Drawing in Blue Pen, 6.12.15

I really can’t believe how long I stepped away from this blog & my regular drawing practice.  I’m not sure what happened, & I apologize!  Basically, I went away on vacation, & then when I got back in early May, I decided to take a day or two off from drawing, which extended into weeks.  It’s amazing how hard it is to establish a habit & how easy it is to break it…

A hand, gesture drawings, & a couple other random things

Hand Drawing in Pen, 4.16.15

Hand Drawing in Pen, 4.16.15

Last night was kind of a meh night for me for drawing – I only have 3 gesture drawings, which I’ll show below.  To make up for my pathetic offering, I’m first starting with this drawing of a hand that I did at a work-related workshop today.  I actually drew this one in light pencil first, then outlined & detailed with a few different Micron pens – including a “brush” pen, which I really liked for nice, thick lines.  I guess this one turned out ok, but it’s probably not my best hand.  I was kind of rushed, though.
