I had a little burst of posts 4 weeks ago, but dropped back into posting nothing as I’ve been too preoccupied with non-art matters unfortunately. Hopefully I will be starting to get back on track in a couple of months from now.
I have been doing the odd fashion illustration sketch on the bus though, trying things out. Not many, but some:
They aren’t that good, but at least they provided a tiny bit of practice to avoid going completely rusty.
Following the two little sketches I did on the bus yesterday, I did another couple today:
On the bus home from work, I sometimes do little sketches on folded-up bits of paper. Last week I decided to treat myself and splashed out £3 on a pack of A6 cards that I could use instead. Today were my first sketches using one of the cards from the pack: a couple of purely invented figures, exercising the fashion illustration techniques I’ve been learning.
The first illustration uses lines, as I’m more used to drawing lines than thinking in terms of shapes:
For the second sketch, I decided to have a go at drawing a figure as shapes, as I’ve been learning more recently:
I will try and grab more opportunities like this to exercise my drawing.
