coming along slowly. I have to study what will come next because it’s getting crowded and obfuscated. I’m trying not to resort to adding color for some elements to stick out.
this was going to be pitched, I tried to fix things but figured I would keep going just to see what comes out of it. There’s metallic marker, black ink and colored pencils. The only part that was originally going to have a color are the bubbles. That obviously didn’t happen. This just looks dirty and unappealing but I’ll post the mistakes along with everything else.
I’m still working on it. Colors aren’t my thang so I’m trying not to completely screw it up again. The colors are covering where I already messed it up. Originally the only thing that was going to be colored were the bubbles, but…
I’m running out of design ideas, everything’s starting to look the same but different.
I missed a row of shading and kept going. I made the first arrow point in the wrong direction and kept going. My pen ran out, the new one’s tip wasn’t worn making it a larger line and I kept going. I replaced my desk lighting with an LED bulb. Now I can see and now I have to start this one over. Doesn’t look like much but that’s 4 days of drawing.
In the last week or so I’ve had several conversations about what we do with our art piles, one here the other here. Some get thrown away as seen here and here. I don’t think much of my drawings, they’re only to practice or learn from. I just throw everything I’ve ever done so far in two Amazon boxes I keep in a plastic crate on my shelf. I can’t even remember ever looking back at them for reference. Now that I’m thinking about it, I never did finish the alphabet I started on. But here’s my pile, at least it’s neatly stacked and possibly in the same order as completed.
The picture is at a bad angle, it’s really deeper than it looks. It’s about 10″ deep in the boxes.
