Another post for Show and tell Saturday. Sketches unlike the regular black on white… I began working on both of these projects on different days and realized that my supplies were very limited so I decided to recycle what I already had at home.
Black and Gold cityscape
Artagain rich black paper
Golden metallic pen, in this case I used Forever 21 nail art pen
<!–more–> I really wanted to use a silver metallic pen that was sitting in my pen holder for the past couple of year. When I began working I realized that it’s all dried out. My mood was set to work on it right then and I was looking for an alternative. Who knew that the nail art pen could come in handy!
It’s a one-time drawing, no erasers used, but I guess, I should have used a ruler lazy me! This drawing requires dealing with isometric projection to create the depth in the original picture above. I’m not completely satisfied with the way it turned out. Guess I just have to practice it more often 😦
When my friends who have toddlers come home, they usually get bored pretty soon… The only toy they find are my stuffed animals and they almost always don’t know the characters… (like the Eric from South Park) Thank God they don’t know! My friends are good parents 🙂
I find angry birds really cute, but it’s no fun to sketch them without color, but again I dint have crayons or paint. While browsing through the art supplies drawer, I found the face paint and crayon stick that I used for last Halloween to entertain the kids. Eureka! I don’t have to go to art supplies store for paint.
Face paint crayons
Moral of the story: Never buy crayons for face painting, They DONT work on skin, but they do on paper!
