Drawing with a ball point pen is a MASSIVE PAIN (=_=)… But I shall persevere because I need to discipline myself into drawing tidier. This is basically and exercise meant to help me pay more attention to details, shapes and construction. I have a tendency to draw (and even paint often times) directly in volumes, by using shadows and lights and lots of messy lines, so the construction is often lacking, being rather suggested … and while that looks quite pretty for a sketch, it really does not help me when trying to shift to painting realistic scenes (my main preoccupation at the moment).
These are random people I drew on the bus and in town. I was hoping to do a lot more but the rainy British weather does not allow for such luxuries.
In my defense these last few sketches were drawn on the bus, that’s why the line is all wobbly 😀
As much as my pen was resisting this purpose, I couldn’t stop shading! which resulted in me spoiling what could have been a wonderful, tidy sketch 😦
… I also wasted an extraordinary occasion of drawing a person that sat still for 20 mins…
