My Adventures In Art

Day 22: Mechanical object

pillar drill detail

I did another drawing exercise from the Keys to Drawing book. The instruction was to make a drawing of a complicated ¬†mechanical object. I was supposed select one or two main areas and develop them in detail and treating the rest as contours and shapes. I didn’t do that. I think I need to get […]

Day 21: Review

Large Logo

Today was mostly spent developing the website, it’s going to be a static file site so no database to hack. I didn’t do much drawing today only 2 minutes to do a pencil logo that I’ll use for the logo for now. I’m quite pleased with my progress, I’ve done a lot of drawing, almost […]

Day 19: Just cross-hatching


I wanted to cover a whole page again in cross hatching so I could try different things, but this time in an ordered grid. Time spent drawing today: 1:56 Total time drawing: 55:38 Time spent developing website: 5:38 Total time developing website: 23:18

Day 18: More hippopotamising

Day 17: Bottles, cross-hatching, face, hippo roar

I tried another lesson from Keys to Drawing, this time to draw a tinted bottle. It took me 6 attempts before I got the right shape (the last one). And I tried other stuff too. Time spent drawing today: 3:10 Total time drawing: 49:57 Time spent developing website: 3:42 Total time developing website: 11:42
