Some Sketches

hey

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any of my artwork, so I thought today I’d share a few of my most recent sketches with you guys! I drew these with my HUION Graphics Tablet using a digital painting application called Krita. I usually do these sketches in 4 steps/layers. First I draw a quick ‘skeleton’ of my sketch in a light colour, then I fill out the skeleton in the same light colour. Next I outline the whole sketch in black and finally, I colour it in.  Let me know what you guys think in the comments below and which sketch is your favourite! If you want to see more of my drawings and paintings, check out my Artwork page.

Featured Artists

Being an aspiring artist myself, I know how hard it is to get your work noticed! So, last week I invited artists to send me their artwork for a chance to be featured on my blog. Firstly, I’d like to say a huge thank you to ALL the artists who sent in their art! I received loads of incredible submissions and narrowing them down to five pieces was really tough. However, after much debate, I finally chose five fantastic works that definitely deserve to be showcased. I also included a link to each artist’s site, so make sure to check them out!

I love the way Isabelle used soft pastel colours to create a delicate, porcelain-like effect for this piece. It’s really beautiful!

‘Time Machine’ is a perfect example of classic black and white photography. I’d love to have this hanging up on my wall!

Drawing animals is really tricky, but Molly truly managed to realistically capture this vibrant little frog.

‘Wander’ is another unique piece,  combining abstract art with a touch of detail here and there.

Decisions

Another great piece. As soon as I saw this painting, the contrast between the dark colours and bright red immediately caught me eye!

I got a Graphics Tablet!

Hey Artsy Teens,

I hope you all got lovely things for Christmas. I got tons of amazing gifts from my friends and family including… a graphics tablet!

I’m sure a lot of you know what this is already , but in case you don’t – it’s basically a drawing tablet that connects to a computer and allows you to draw digitally using a special stylus.

Actually using the tablet is much more difficult than it looks. Drawing on the tablet and looking at the computer screen at the same time takes a lot of getting used to, not to mention learning how to use different drawing applications etc. So far I’ve only done a few quick sketches on an application called Krita, but I thought I’d share a few of them with you guys!

What do you think?
