Now that I’m back and finally settled in Calgary, I’ll try my best to post more often. So here’s a sketch that I did when I was in Rankin.
I never had the chance to finish it because of the move but I believe the model was from a Seventeen magazine, I’m not too sure. I no longer have the reference photo of this model so I don’t think I’ll be able to finish it any time soon.
I haven’t done a pencil drawing for about ten years now, pretty long time huh? But I must say I did pretty good job for a person who hasn’t done a one in a long time.
I drew her hair in the very low light while watching a movie, that’s why the hair doesn’t look very realistic. I had to use a Q-tip to blend because I couldn’t find my blending tool at that time and a kneaded eraser to do the highlights on the face, lips, and parts of her hair. If I had known that you could use an eraser to do highlilghts when I was younger I think drawing portraits would have been a lot easier.

Fashion Drawing, Pencil.
Wow, I haven’t posted anything on here for a long time! I’ve been really busy at work, especially now with the Christmas season. I was also sick last week, I had a bad case of the stomach flu and had constant fever and a strep throat. No fun… I’m going back to work tomorrow. *sigh. Christmas is in four days! Then it’s my birthday! =)
I’m trying to get some new artwork going before the New Years. I bought a lot of art materials on Ebay last month (maybe a little too much I should say, but they’re a Christmas/Birthday present for myself… hehe.) and I’m anxious on getting to use them. hehe.

I attached a drawing I did for practice earlier this year. I got the model off from a Glamour magazine fashion page. Her eyes are done by continuous shading and I did a lot of incomplete lines on her face too which is always fun to do when you are doing a fashion drawing. I’ll be putting up more recent work in a couple of days, so stay tuned for that!
I love the holidays only because it means I actually get some time off work. haha. No turkey this year though, I’m just going to relax and do some drawings at home.
I’ve been working on a painting for the past couple of days. It’s been so long since I’ve held a paint brush. I can’t even remember how to mix colors! But the painting is turning out really well. I might post it in a couple of days when I’m done. I’m just super glad my paints haven’t dried out after so many years!
