Figure Drawing #1 – A Quite Girl

Posted by | March 11, 2012 | 0 Comments

My first time figure drawing in pencil based on an artist’s work. The original drawing has very smooth and simple line and shadow which I was trying to mimic. The first one is the original and 2nd one is mine.

Obviously these are two drawing s in two totally different levels – professional and amateur.  I think at lease I need to increase the black and white contrast. I am kind of not comfortable to use strong lines with pencil. Maybe I am afraid of making mistakes and not able to fix them.

Charcoal Drawing #3 – Sunflower & Lily

Posted by | March 10, 2012 | 0 Comments

Sunflower is one of my favorite flowers. I like their vibrant colors and spirit. I plant sunflower in my gardens. They grow so easily and can be up to more than two meters high.


It’s my first time to draw sunflower. I like the colors and composition; but the shading is always the most difficult part.

I also drew a white lily which I like a lot. It looks like I am pretty good at capturing those flowers with a simpler shade.

Still Life Drawing #1 – Mouse

Posted by | February 12, 2012 | 0 Comments

This is my first still life drawing in pencil. I drew the wireless mouse that I use for my laptop. I am  learning how to draw shadow with still life. I am happy with it considering I am a beginner. 🙂
