Practice makes perfect or maybe not

I do realize this post contains sketches of very questionable quality, but I've made a resolution that I'll post all this March Sketchbook Challenge stuff, so there is no turning back... ;) Just don't zoom in please...

Quick portraits of my faithful left hand:

And something rather new to me, a few sketches from the subway:

Here's my final version of the logo for our art group, which we eventually decided to use. I invite you to follow our facebook page:


Aaaand our blog, which will soon be filled with pictures:

Majlsy Dejwisy

Another sheet of sketches I did today as part of my daily practice. I approached them with slightly more focus than usually and I suppose this is the sheet I'm most satisfied with so far. Which doesn't mean that I'm no longer ashamed of my traditional skills ;)

Sketchbook Challenge part 4

Another practice set, I keep searching for solutions which I could transfer to digital painting

And somehow I keep drawing excessively large heads

CD cover

Another CD cover for another non-existent band, this time a stoner legend

Sketchbook Challenge part 3

I'm in the middle of the challenge, having covered 15 sheets of paper with drawings. I'm not too happy about their quality, to be honest. The faces are hardly recognizable (can you see Christopher Lee and Alexander Lukashenko in one of the sheets? Actually, this sheet is entirely devoted to Sean Connery... :d), but it isn't really something I care about, I'm trying to develop some technique and code some generic proportions in my brain. What I AM really pleased with, is how I manage to maintain discipline - I didn't even think that I would get so far as day 15!

A project of a logo I did for a mysterious art group you're not allowed to speak about:

LP cover

I did a fake LP cover for a jazz/funk/fusion band which doesn't exist. But if it did, it would sound pretty much like this:

I did it for free. I'm a man of strong principles and I never charge bands which don't exist.

A couple of sketches

My first nude lady drawn from observation of a live model. There are many things about this picture that I hate, and two that I actually like. I mostly concentrated on the light and proportions, though they still turned out a bit off anyway. The time was around 2 hours and the size of the picture after cropping is slightly larger than A4.

Drawing boobs since 2013
'Nope. Theese boobs are still far from perfect. They certainly need more attention'

A warm-up head from imagination to try out the borrowed pencil

 Aaand more ink sketches for the March Sketchbook Challenge:

Sketchbook Challenge

Some sketches (from photo references) I've done so far for the March edition of Sketchbook Challenge. No, I didn't intentionally obscure the worst parts from the view.

All right, I did.

In general, I'm trying to do something about my drawing, I tend to tranfer certain solutions from painting to drawing when I'm using pencils and that's totally not what I'm aiming for. That's why I resort to ink, which will hopefully force me to search for new solutions. At the same time I'm trying to work on the proportions, but it's a very unforgiving medium... :)
