I made this crochet “hat lizard” as a birthday gift for a friend of mine. Inside joke. This is the second pattern I’ve come up with by myself, and I will be posting it once I smooth out some of the details.
Here’s a birthday gift for one of my good friends online! She has accounts on DeviantArt, YouTube, and Instagram, but I’ll link her Scratch profile because that’s where she’s most active. She’s super talented and one of the nicest people I’ve met on the site, so I’d highly recommend following her.
Whew! This piece took forever, but that’s not too much of a surprise–it’s been weeks since I last picked up a pencil, let alone drew anything! And it’s been even longer since I made any digital art. It feels good to draw again, though! I’m pretty happy with how this turned out, too. I tried a few new techniques, played around with some brushes, and overall just had a lot of fun making this piece.
The other day, a friend of mine came up with an idea for a collaboration where we each make half of a drawing and then switch sketchbooks. Then, we complete the other person’s drawing. This is the one that I started in my sketchbook, and she finished. I think that it turned out really nicely! To see the other half of our collaboration, click here.
Yesterday, one of my friends had the idea for a collaboration drawing—one where we each drew half of the face. I thought this sounded like a great thing to try out, so we both started a drawing and then switched sketchbooks. The one in the picture is the piece that she started, with her half on the right and mine on the left.
Since our styles differ so much, there were a couple of issues that occurred, but most were minor. I tried to match up features at the correct heights as best I could, but because of our stylistic differences, that resulted in the anatomy of my side looking a little bit…off.
Regardless, I think this was a really beneficial practice for me! I rarely draw close-up portraits of people, and I line and color my pieces even less often than that. By doing this, I got to explore drawing faces in closer detail, and I think I improved the way I draw facial features and hair quite a bit! I’ve also decided I should try using different mediums more often, rather than limiting myself to pencil. I think the lining and color turned out really nice in this drawing, and I’d like to experiment more with them.
Makayla still has my sketchbook, but I’ll make sure to post the other drawing once I get it back tomorrow.
A birthday gift for my friend Pipistrellosaur. I was experimenting with lineless style techniques.
Happy Birthday LeviAndStuff! Have a doggo.
Sooo I’ve been experimenting with a more realistic style and I’m actually pretty proud of this! 😀
Another drawing I made at school. Pinecone and Beepaw are just having a good time chatting and laying in the grass. Also yes, I was listening to DEH and couldn’t think of a title for these so…..
