Hello all! Firstly, I’d like to announce that my posting day for now on will be Monday instead of Sunday… It’s just for my convenience, but nothing else will change.
It’s now been 3 weeks and 1 day since Wendigo passed away, and I’ve been feeling a bit tender about it… but otherwise, we’re doing very well getting over this tragedy. I’ve been preparing another tribute for him, which I will tell you all about in due time.
Anyway, here is another drawing of different styled wolves done in an experimental way: as a family portrait! This is done so I can try drawing my wolf character in different styles. Hoping you all will like it. Cheers and enjoy!
Hello there! Here is a second batch of wolf sketches I’ve done to get my mind nice and active. These will give me some nice inspiration for my character designs. I hope to draw at least two of these as a digital piece. They’re slightly bad photos I know…but I hope you enjoy them! Bye for now and have a splendid new week! Cheers all!
Hello all… The ringing in my ears is still here to try and push me out of sync… however, I’m just doing my best to relax and even forget it’s there. Hopefully, me resting and just playing around with some ideas from time to time can give me some strength to fight this thing off for good…
Anyway, I’m now pointing my ‘personal project’ focus towards redesigning Lazfar my alter ago wolf character. I’ve started the ball rolling with these wolf sketches. These are reference inspired, but were ultimately done from imagination.
This rough sketch was done in watercolours, in which I tested a new method of mine I’ve nicknamed ‘Drawing With A Brush’. The idea was to paint this by using a paintbrush as similar as possible to how I would draw with a pen. I used different hues of one colour, with the purpose of experimenting with depth.
I sketched a more detailed wolf’s head, again, just to play around. Both of these are exactly the same design sketched twice in different media. The grey one was sketched using graphite pencils. The red one was painted using cheep poster paint using my new DWAB technique to explore what I can achieve.
I’ll try to make more work based on this theme, and as usual, you’re more than welcome to comment. For now, thanks for looking and I wish you a relaxing Sunday and a good new week (and month) ahead. Cheers everyone!
Well…? Remember the previous sketch of Laz running which I said I had no ideas for the background? This is the result for my only idea…which I thought would work. And now it’s ruined… Even the buildings and the horizon line in the landscape is crooked 😦
A word of advice to you all…never draw something when you’re stressed out, tired, and desperate for ideas.
If you are struggling, I suggest you look for inspiration… And dont be shy about it. Be it from the internet, books, or looking at older sketches you have done, it can be the most simple of things that might trigger an inspiring stroke of luck. Don’t force yourself, just try.
Also…try to relax. Dont hate yourself if you make an embarrassing mistake, just try to bounce back from it, and motivate yourself to do better.
As for me, I’m going to try another idea for this image, but this time, digitally. Lets see if I can fix this nastiness, ay?
A quick colour sketch of Lazfar running from front view. (I have no flaming clue what to draw in the background…but I know it will be some sort of underground or grungy Setting).
