Orion

All I know is the shade of green I want to use. – moi

Tonight’s piece was a total go with the flow. No references used and this guy is right from my imagination. The only thing I was certain about was the shade of green I wanted to use.

I used this drawing to practice using the Pen Tool to create round shapes. I like how the body and tail came together. The fingers could use a bit more attention. I gave his eyes the same treatment I’ve been giving my charms that I find absolutely adorable.

The name was decided when I chose my background; the background is a texture created by zummerfish.

He would make a cute charm, but I would need to imagine all the different angles.

Thanks for reading!

 

Dragon Shape

I used to be really good with charcoal drawings. – moi

It has been over ten years since I’ve done a charcoal drawing. I can tell I am rusty, but I enjoy this medium and know I’ll be working more with it in the future. Charcoal is so easy to add and take away, forgiving when making mistakes and messy!

Below is a photo of my point of view.

Memories of when I took an intro to drawing class had me recall what my professor would say over and over “squint your eyes.” It was all about drawing shapes.

I remember him telling us, “Drawing is like a muscle. If you keep using it it will always get better, and if you stop you’ll lose it.” I learned a lot from him and his class was one I always looked forward to.

My class final I chose dragons as my subject, and to this day I consider them some of my best work.
