May had just one inkdancer and a photo reference portrait posted on instagram, BUT on April I was invited to join the awesome team of ICONIC <3 To celebrate I did a self portrait as a pirate.
Of course there were life drawing studies. Started studying heads. You’re going to see all the sweat and struggle.
I’m kind of sad after gathering what I did on april last year, cause now I remember that’s when my “art block” or whatever happened to me started. I just hated everything I was doing and felt like nothing was good enough, so I just threw away a lot of things I did during that time. There was just one post on my instagram from April, the rest were studies I didn’t post.
Beware, there are some NSFW studies below.
Using photo reference:
These two were my attempts to the challenge created by Dessamore in which you have to make a drawing with a reduce pre-chosen palette
And finally my life drawing studies of March
Inkdancers of the month:
Digital painting studies after John Singer Sargent:
And these two are studies from imagination I did after the master studies trying to apply what I learned:
A study from photo reference. I used @marycake picture as reference
Another one using photo reference, but the lighting was from imagination
And now the life drawing studies of the month:
I started studying Life Drawing with Carlos Luzzi, here are the first studies.
And more croquis cafe:
