I drew & painted my outside window with a fine-liner pen!

Quite a while ago, I developed a strategy – which is almost definitely not my original idea – where I get a fine-liner pen, do a drawing with it, then paint it with watercolours. Before I started using watercolours, I used to paint with acrylics. Nowadays, I hardly ever use acrylics – I do like…

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…

Some “Real Art” of My Other Lounge

So first I would like to say that by “Real Art”, I am talking about drawing, painting, oil pastels, etc, – instead of the Graphic and Web Design stuff that I have been doing for the last week or two! Graphic Design and Web Design is definitely still art, but when I think of art,…

Animal Artwork #2 – A Leopard

So I decided to do a drawing of an animal, more specifically a leopard! First, I looked at several images of leopards on the internet. Then, I began to do the drawing! It probably took be about 30-40 minutes from start-finish. My favourite part of it was definitely drawing the eyes and the spots, of…

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…

(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…
