Brightest Star in the Night Sky.
As inspired by the amazing song by Escape Plan of the same name. Apologies for the hiatus… lack of inspiration amongst other things. First use of my watercolor pencils; not enough blue buy could’ve ended up worse.
“A Sketch every six days? Well that’s not a Sketch a day.”
Waiting in snow.
First time trying this sort of Sketch, pencil and entirely imagined. As such there are many mistakes in proportion and body etc but I think I did a decent face, must be all that practice drawing only faces photorealistically. I tried to express a story of some sort? I was in a sombre mood hence the snow and expression.
“…How long have I been standing here?”
Field Part 2.
I went back to try and capture the yellowness. Not especially successful as my range of colours was limited but Instagram managed to save it. Between maybe 10 minutes and an hour, I lost track. Here’s a less (but still quite) shamelessly edited photo:
“…My hands are numb…”
When out on a walk in the neighbouring countryside, exploring the British fields and country roads and secret footpaths and whatnot, finding a rather nice view along the edge of a field of yellow flowers. I couldn’t tell you the name of the plant, nor could I express the yellowness, but I think I did a good likeness. Sorry for the bad photo. I haven’t done traditional style pencil landscape sketch for a long time and am out of practice.
By the way, if you find it more convenient, you may want to follow my Instagram account here, as I always Instagram my sketches first but sometimes forget to upload them on the blog afterwards. You will also hear less rambling from me and be able to see my blog’s photos more succinctly.
“…Okay, this might take longer than a year.”
Lost inspiration and time lately what with revision but this was fun to do. Maybe I’m more suited to improvisation. Continuous line with fineliner. Sorry it’s been so long, I’ll try and get back into making it a habit. I was mainly inspired today by this project here, where the artist Gabriel Picolo is doing a similar doodle a day project with far more amazing and disciplined results. Check it out, there’s a lot of cool drawings there!
“And so, I hereby re-christen thee…B.A.Pril!!!”
That’s right, straight on to the next Project!! No time to waste, especially as B.A.Project will be exclusive to B.A.Pril (pronounced “B – A – pril”, as in B.A.P + April, geddit???) in celebration and anticipation of their Live on Earth concert in London on the 27th April 2014 at O2 Brixton Academy, which I will be attending!!!
As you can see by the excess of punctuation, I am more than a little excited, and this project is here to help me (and you) become even more so. If you don’t know what I’m talking about right now, click here for a little preview of what I am going to have the privilege of setting my eyes upon this April. Just so you know, the name stands for Best Absolute Perfect, and don’t worry, you get used to it.
I’m typing this post in a hurry in order to catch 1st B.A.Pril and spend the whole month doing FANARTS and SKETCHES of our dearest Yongguk, Himchan, Zelo, Jongup, Youngjae and Daehyun, GRAPHICS AND EDITS, QUITE POSSIBLY A COVER if I have the time, GENERAL EXCITED TWEETING with the hashtags #B.A.Pril and #B.A.Project and maybe some LATE BIRTHDAY GIFTS for Yongguk’s birthday, which just passed and is unfortunately not in B.A.Pril.
As of yet unplanned and rather spontaneous, but I hope you’ll join me in celebrating #B.A.Pril and become a B.A.B.Y (a B.A.P fan) at the same time 🙂 In the meantime, here’s some more original B.A.P goodness while you wait.
Finished painting of Lee Hi using watercolour and pencil.
To be honest I’m not completely satisfied with the outcome, the filter males it look better but the final colours didn’t balance well or express the rich vibrance of Rose.
I did do it in a bit of a rush because I’m going home tomorrow and didn’t want to leave it, and my watercolour skills are a little rusty. It seems other might have been better to be more expressive with brush strokes and colours.
Hopefully the video will be up soon. Please anticipate ^_^
In the meantime here are some more filtered pics of the final piece. Critique welcome.
