Taking a break from black pen to try out some colour pencils sketches.
I’ve been awful and the only art I’ve been doing outside college work has been doodling in lectures. I do feel weirdly satisfied by these - there’s something nice in the freedom of doodling.
Recent sketches. Finally finished the stupid little square notebook that I’ve had for the last four months (which is fair too long to have one notebook anyway) so hopefully this will spur on for more drawings and more posts to happen.
Some lecture doodles from the past few days.
Hey guys and guyettes I’m sorry I haven’t posted here much at all recently I’ve managed to lose my camera charger. In the mean time I’ve set up a Behance and an Instagram at jamesmyth if you want to follow me on either of those. Here’s some life drawing from the other day anyway.
Some drawings from lounging about on Christmas and St.Stephen’s Day. Belated Merry Christmas to all ye kids.
Back to observational drawing.
I don’t really share too much college work on this site for a few reasons (it being a bit boring + I usually don’t like it/am not as proud of it as my personal work) but I actually quite like how my project of designing a shampoo bottle came out.
The brief was very open (you could choose any type of shampoo) so I chose to design a shampoo for bearded men. Everything on the bottle is hand rendered and then photocopied down half size on to antique white paper. I got the woodcut affect by rubbing my thumb across the paper which slightly rips up the paper.
