I’ve been watching “Draw-Off” series from Buzzfeed on YouTube lately. In each episode of this series, there are pairs of incredible artist/illustrator/cartoonist sit face-to-face and compete in a series of drawing challenges –my favorite is when they’re drawing famous characters from memory.
It might sound easy peasy but it is obviously not. Let’s take Patrick Star for example. I’m sure everyone will recognize him easily. But can you recall what kind of pants he’s wearing, what his eyes’ color is, or whether he has eyebrows? Probably not.
We see a lot of characters every day in comics, in TV shows, and in memes. And yet, their details are incredibly hard to remember without a reference. Interesting, right?
Woohoo I’m writing again! I’m surprised how long it takes for me to write another post after the last one.
(here my excuses start) (just skip this part) These two months had been cray-cray and I was a bit stressed out. There were some new projects at work. There was some minor renovation in my house which was quite disturbing. My house assistant is no longer around so I gotta help to do the chores I’m not accustomed to. I had a lot of irons in the fire and gotta go out of town almost every week so I was physically tired. And also, there were some personal things/issues going on that made me mentally drained. I used all my free time to rest, pray, do nothing and overthink things, or simply meditate. Writing was not my top priority, so yeah. (here the end of my excuses) (thank you if you actually care and read this, lol)
And now some of them had passed, I feel like I can actually take a breath and continue my routine. Working in peace, drawing, hanging out, everything. And also writing! I think I have some more topics to be shared in this blog, hopefully I can make writing one of my routines too! I’m gonna start with one post per week to start –will try my best to manage.
This is no longer a 30-day-writing-challenge-whatsoever, it’s just me trying to consistently grow my skill in writing. So, hello again!🌼
I just finished my Procreate for Beginners course! I’m getting a bit familiar with everything after completing all four projects. I’ve written about the first and second project here, and now I continue!
There was this one video on my YouTube recommendation that led me to a (FREE!) online course named Procreate for Beginners and I immediately went straight to the site. The course took about two hours (excluding your practice time) and it will give you every necessary thing to get to know the app. It’s a project-based course, so by the end of this course, you will have at least four artworks like these images below. I’m only halfway, but I feel the urge to share this here!
