Quick sketch – Osaka Castle

Illustration

Sometimes it’s fun just to draw a quick 10 mins sketch. Purpose is to get feeling of perspective. When people to street sketching, it’s important to know what to look for. In this case I just do it in my study room aka studio? Haha.

Quick rough sketch followed by quick rough coloring with my markers. Nice to add this stuffs to my sketch book.

I intend to finish up my sketchbook and add more and more sketches. This will be a good way to see how I have progressed I illustration journey. I like to believe that I will progress. Just need to know what I need to improved.

 

Here is the reference image πŸ™‚

More sketching…

Fun Posts

It’s one of those weekend – that I am trying to sketch again. The thing about sketching is that – I must continue to sketch, not about practice but about getting the experience to be able to discover the style!

By getting more experience – I would be able to look at what I am good at, what I am bad at, and in the next sketch is for me to improve. Every sketch is masterpiece – for good or for bad πŸ™‚

Shitty Perspective

The sketch I did today is another try at sketching the same thing. My problem is of course is how to I view perspective. The converging lines is just so difficult for me to translate into my sketches. If you look at the sketch below – despite using guides, I am still shit at that.

Fine – time to do some research and learn how to do converging verticals. Not so easy – but i guess with more experience I would be able to handle it better.

To detail or not to detail

I don’t have a lot of patience, but I do like details. It’s fun to draw details – especially playing with different pens. But when I get bored, I will just screw the whole sketch up. I guess it’s about getting the balance and planning myself ahead. Like for the sketch today – it was just a spur of the moment. Spent less than 30 mins to come out with the sketch. Ha ha.

Colors

Okay – I am just shit at this. I don’t even know how to use water colours, don’t know how to mix. Amazing that I am able to come out with something. I kinda got the hang of it. I guess in more sketches – I would be able to discover the colours and style that I like.

Summary

I need to continue to focus on building my skills. Sketch more… and I’ll get better πŸ™‚

 

Trying out water colour

Illustration

Just testing how watercolor will work on my sketch test. Actually the sketch is a failure because of the perspective. Will continue to sketch on it to figure out what’s the right perspective. It’s the portion on the right of the Capitol building that’s screwy. I do like the smaller details as it creates a nice impact to the image. A pain to do though. Had to use magnifying glass!
