I drew Frodo Baggins from The Hobbit Movie!

So a couple of days ago, I decided I wanted to do another portrait drawing. I decided to keep it in the Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit theme, so I drew Frodo Baggins! Here is how I did it: Like before, I started out by drawing and outline of the face, including where…

A drawing of Bilbo Baggins!

This is another drawing I did – it is of Bilbo Baggins in the live action hobbit movies. Here are some of the things I do and don’t like about it: Things I do like about it: The wrinkles around the mouth, under the eyes and on the forehead are better than I expected –…

I drew a self portrait!

So a bit over a year ago (before I started this blog), I did a couple of portraits. I learnt most of what I know about it because of several books my parents got me about drawing portraits. But then, I sort of stopped doing them – until now! I decided to do a drawing…

How much have my drawings improved in 1 year?

If you have been following me for a while, you may remember that I did a drawing of my front garden in about the 23rd of February 2019. Since the beginning of 2020, I had the idea that I would – at some point – draw the same scene, 1 year apart. Here it is…

Paintings of my bedroom setup!

So I was wondering what I should paint next, and I decided to paint what was right in front of me – my desk! I did this artwork a couple of months ago, and wasn’t sure whether or not to post it, but I have decided to do it now! If you haven’t seen my…

Shed in the back garden (again)!

I am sorry I haven’t posted for a while – I will try and get back into schedule now. Anyway here is my latest drawing. As you can see, it is of the shed in the back garden. I have used many different shading techniques – smooth shading (in the roof), hatching (in the floor…

Venice Bridge!

Welcome back! A short while ago I bought a set consisting of some paper with this scene sketched out, along with some pencils and a rubber. It also comes with some instructions about how to do different types of shading. It probably took me about a week altogether to complete this, and it was an…

(Very Overdue Post) Last Assignment for the drawing course!

Before we get into the post, I would like to apologise for the fact that this post is extremely late! I have been busy with my other projects, and have had relatives to stay! Anyway this is the last assignment for the drawing course I was completing. This week was about drawing optical illusions. I…

Drawing Using The Grid Technique.

Here is another post. As most of you probably know, I am currently completing a 3 week drawing course and I thought I’d share with you the work I am doing. These are 2 of my favourite drawings from the 3rd week of the course. This week in the drawing course, we are learning about…

Metaphorical Still Life

Welcome back everyone! This is a still life I have done for the drawing course I am doing. Before I actually drew it, I jotted some ideas down in my sketchbook and planned some thumbnail sketches. After that, I put the objects down on the floor, photographed them in a few different angles, and then…
