I saw an Angel

I saw an Angel

This was the angel that Jack Dawson saw on the first doc at the Titanic ship,
*some scene at Titanic movie, drawn with 2b graphite pencil on Lyra paper, and then take a photo with pocket camera plus some yellow light. (Doc. Arkanhendra)


Cold Wet and Dark

every particle of air that touches the skin, it absorbs heat from the body.
As a bloodthirsty vampire.
feels heavy to move. Because in every crevice cell was crowded by water atoms scattered aimlessly.
When hot body has disappeared, as the sun loses axis.

When the body becomes silent. As a stone that just freezes, while the water slowly erode.

Thus, the dark.
There was no light, no movement. Only dark black.

I’m working with just one pencil, to build the mid and dark tone. I found it a little bit difficult at the beginning, because my brain trying to disturb. But, I tried to ignore it. Forcing my self to focus on the shape and value rather than the figure (like i told you before).

Perhaps, sometime you could try this, using a weird figure pose. So, you can focus on building the shape and value.

My Own Genre

Yesterday, i was attending an art exhibition of some art maestro in Indonesia. It display some art work from Affandi and others famous artist. Among many art works at the exhibition, the affandi sketch was inspired me a lot. I think that the sketches told me that if you want to draw just draw, dont think it too much. And dont be confused with the genre of your work. Whether your work is realism, expresionism or another genreism, just draw. Continue reading “My Own Genre”
