Hello friends and followers! Unfortunately, whilst I had a nice idea of what I was going to upload today, I just couldn’t finish it in time (much to my brutal frustration), so in place of that, I present to you a couple of pieces of sample calligraphy I did mainly using masking fluid, and Brusho (a sort of powdered watercolour medium).
The following images are rather colourful, so just bear that in mind if you’re sensitive to colours.
Yikes!: Strong overcooked Brusho colours galore!
This was more part of a playful “idea” session I done when I had some spare time and it certainly isn’t polished to perfection, but in any event, I do hope you like them!
Determination: I’m going to need a lot of that at this rate…
For the sake of Translation, the Calligraphy reads “Determination” and “Yikes!”.
Hooray for Inktober! A nice challenge for me to sink my block into. It’ll be starting this Sunday, and I actually can’t wait! I’ve already found the official prompt list. If anyone needs me to post the prompt list, let me know by commenting and I’ll reply with the list when I’m able.
For this year, I’m actually going to try and break (ahem) challenge myself even harder. How, I hear you mutter? Well… wait and see! I can’t promise it’d work (especially with my current empty brain) but I’m all for giving it a darn good go.
Until next time everyone!
Hello friends and followers! Something more experimental I created, this is a drawing of a T-Rex mainly sketched from imagination. I did this using coloured pencils and ink on canvas board.
Dinosaur Material: Canvas Rex was completed using an ink and coloured pencil combo.
I wanted to see what I could achieve with these materials to help me with my block. Overall, it isn’t the best thing I’ve done by far. The anatomy and proportions are slightly out of place here and there, and the material was a tad punishing to my coloured pencils, but I suppose that’s what happens when you try to go outside of the box to experiment and take risks!
I love these canvas boards though…they have an appeal to me that I like. They are canvases that are flat enough to frame, yet strong, and I like the confidence I feel when working on strong surfaces. It’s just a shame that these are backed with coarse fabric… surfaces like this pair better with oil or acrylic paints, and less with the drawing media I like to use such as pencils or ink (although ink does adhere to canvas).
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy this and I shall see you next time (Hopefully I’ll be sticking to my regular Monday schedules). Cheers all!
Total Utter Sass: mainly drawn using two different coloured ballpoint pens.
Not particularly basic, but a doodle nonetheless… this was done purely as a fun concept of doing something sassy and classy for a change.
Hello friends and followers! Just wanted to say another huge apology for my long absence, and thanks for staying with me! This block and the autumnal weather is draining me a bit, so I’m taking time with blog projects. Please excuse me if I’m not as active here and bear with me in the meantime. I’m also sorry if any work I do upload may not seem the most interesting.
Right, now that’s out of the way… a few random facts for you all.
– Total Utter Sass was instead supposed to be a piece called “Sleeping Soldiers”, but I scrapped the idea… most probably because my head is empty. That concept was supposed to feature some creatures sleeping whilst keeping guard of something important along with some relevant text or phrase.
I may do this another time (?)
– If I was any more inspired and braver than I am now (I’m probably 0 on the scale of “inspired bravery” at the moment) T.U.S would be a digital piece.
– Finally, This was done using two coloured biro pens on cartridge paper (and white pen for highlights).
It’s times like this that I really appreciate things like Inktober (Which should be next month! Wahay!) I’m excited as it gives me the chance to draw things without having to worry as much… and it’s a load of fun. Thrilling!
Right, time to call it a day for now. In the meantime, I do hope you enjoy this, and I thank you for stopping by, it’s very much appreciated!
See you all next time!
