Drawing people is a bit tricky, bc once they find out you are drawing them, they stiffen up, or try to get in a better "artificial pose". Or they.. (my favorite) they grab their shit and leave. There's an art to pretending you are not drawing some one. It on par with training to become a ninja...
Here are a few drawings from my sketch book. Nothing grand, just figure drawings from europe. As you might observe, people on the the other side of the globe sit and wait just like we do in America.. fascinating...
|At the Airport, Flights are DELAYED... I used a blue animation drafting pencil.. WHY? because it just happened to be the one my hand grabbed from my pocket. I don't think when sketching.. I just sketch.|
|On a Subway tram, I knew that SHE knew I was drawing her..|
|I wonder what people did at the Airport before the Iphone was invented...|
|I like draw 'till the whole page is filled. They tend to come out like this, with no up or down orientation. Very annoying to who ever looks through my sketch books. I like to fill the whole page bc I am forced to vary the size of my figures.|
|When I see an interesting face I try to capture it fast instead of wasting time on the body or clothes.|
|It's ok to be messy when you sketch. As long as you capture the pose and the person, that is what counts.|
|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb80qq4JUpE ...LOL sorry but I had to..|
|Pencil over Blue Drafting Pencil.. not as fancy as it sounds...|
|This would be the city of Ghent. I didn't get a chance to draw, my brother wanted to keep moving. But this drawing captured the edge of a canal. I think drawing places is worth your time bc it makes you work on perspective and proportions.|
|I sat in a park and drew a Museum...|
|More people posing and climbing a statue. The lady in the bottom right is on a bicycle taking a picture..,just in case you were wondering.|
|At another park in Europe... or outside my apartment in California.. hmm. now I got you wondering... goes to show that people no matter how different we perceive ourselves to be from one another, we are more a like than we would like to admit.|
|Looking outside my Hostel window out onto an Amsterdam street. Yes that a canal in there too, hence the boat.|
|A lot of live music over there in Germany, and what did they play? BOB MARLEY :)|
|He gave an hour long show for some coins, turned out he plays at the local bar and just decides to play in the plaza once in a while.|
So sorry for not being around to post something in so long, but I'm back now, so expect some awesomeness on this blog soon. Remember to draw draw draw. You don't need to put aside 3 hours to draw. All you need is 30 seconds. Just do it.
