.: I’ve decided to learn how to draw. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time now, having bought Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain more than a year ago but only just recently picking it up to read. Below is a collection of my relatively recent attempts. Enjoy.
Earliest attempt at realistic drawing. ("This is my pipet. There are many like it, but this one is mine.")
Surge Protector Uselessifier
Copy job from the cover art of Goldfrapp's "Supernature."
Supposedly a clenched, posed hand is easier to draw than a flat one. Go figure.
Copy job from a figure in Betty Edwards' "Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain." The original imaged was cropped, so I restored it as accurately as possible.
Copy job of the cover art on Sinclair Lewis' "Free Air." Amazingly enough I can't find the exact image online, but it closely resembles this version.
Early attempt at realistic drawing in a Starbucks.
I eventually want to learn how to draw simple cartoon figures, but ironically the more realistic drawings are easier to learn.
Straight from the imagination.
First attempt with a ruler and a regular (not mechanical) pencil.
