Draw a Thing 1/22/2018: Succulent Spread

I had inked out a few succulent designs and tested some of the marker colors in my Traveler’s Notebook before starting the actual project in my other notebook. Two goals: First off, to do more ink drawings without outlining in pencil first; Second, the color the background without it being super streaky (compare to the …

Draw a Thing 6/3/2017: Cacti

My campaign to draw and/or paint a thing once a week kind of turned into draw and/or paint a thing once a year :X. I saw a YouTube video of someone watercoloring cacti and succulents so I thought that I would give it a try. Watercolor consistency ended up being too watery. Also, I think …

Draw a Thing 10/18/16: Harvey the Cat + Color Chart

Sketched, inked, and then watercolored a picture of our cat Harvey. I messed up a bit while drawing his mouth unfortunately, so he has more of a cartoon cat expression than a normal cat expression :/. Color chart painted for reference for the sake of knowing what each color looks like on paper. I was …

Super quick pencil drawing then inking of a dwarf; Just a random dwarf, no dwarf in particular. That said, some rather interesting events have transpired in my current fortress. I may illustrate them if I …

Draw a Thing 9/25/16: Rooster

I like roosters :3 Forgot to erase the pencil lines before coloring with markers. Drawing, inking, and coloring took about 20 to 30 minutes. Unfortunately, there is quite a bit of marker bleed through even with the 180g paper. It’s not really that big of a deal so long as I keep a blotter on …

Draw a Thing 9/19/16: Knife Crab

I used to be pretty okayish at drawing by virtue of doodling literally all the time. At some point I stopped and fell out of practice. New personal project: Draw something every day (or at least once a week or whenever as long as it is regular.) The idea is that the more I draw, …
