Thought it was about time to sketch something just because I love it. And I love birds!
So, at a certain level, I failed at this one. It was sketched from a photo of a bust. But, my pencil decided to make it more “human”. And since I really liked the way it came out, I decided to leave it as is. I may try again to duplicate the bust at another time.
This one was drawn from a picture of a statue. I know I have a picture of the whole statue somewhere, but I really liked this cut away of it.
I just really liked the picture I used when I drew this. A very retro looking image. I didn’t quite capture the smokey effect around the hat, but I gave it a good try.
Again, taken from a classic sketch. Wanted to try something other than people for a change.
The latest sketch drawn from a picture of a bust. I don’t know who did the bust as I found it on the internet. It looked like it would be fun to do and though I don’t have the head tilt completely accurate, I am getting better at it.
Been working more on practicing copying classic sketches. I’m rather proud of this one. I got really close to the picture I was copying from. Had to make some changes on one of the sides when I realized the proportions were a bit off. But, that is part of the learning process.
Working on my drawing skills again and using a book of classic art plates to sketch from. Feet have always intimidated the hell out of me, but I think I am starting to get the hang of them. I guess there is something to be said about copying the masters. You learn much from doing so.
