Learning To Draw: Post #12

Hi guys, hope you had some nice Winter holidays? I’ve been travelling so much the last three weeks I feel dizzy. Sometimes when I wake up in the mornings I forget where I am, or when I’m on the train I forget where I’m going. What’s home anyway? In three weeks I’ve been: Stockholm (Sweden) – Åland (Finland) – Åbo (FIN) – Helsinki (FIN) – Marsa Alam (Egypt) – Helsinki – Åbo – Stockholm – Åland – Stockholm – Malmö (Sweden) – Stockholm. 8D Anyways, here’s the latest pictures from my “Learning To Draw”-project. If you want to see everything ever made click [here] for a link to my special DeviantArt gallery.

1/1-13Erh, don't ask me about what's going on with the Japanese guy's hair lol. I doodled some sleeping girls at the train, felt like a perv, but I've learned by now that nothing beats drawing objects from life : O

2 hours later, rendering a robot concept I made a few weeks earlier. I didn’t really know how to do this, so I kinda just went along and experimented. I guess that’s good every once in a while!

Back at drawing after almost 3 weeks with no drawing due to travelling, sickness and other stuff.
I LOVE robots <3

Finished reading the excellent book “Creative Illustration” written by Andrew Loomis this week. That book was nothing short of an eye-opener. It covered the very basics for stuff I’ve been lacking for so long. Color, line, half-tone, message, composition, techniques etc. Now my book is full of under-linings and stuff I’ve written next to the many illustrations shown. Awesome stuff. Next up: time to order more books, got a gift card for two more books. Any suggestions on good books about painting/drawing let me know :3
