Drawing people project #2

After playing with my charcoal (that i bought couple month ago) in my ballerina draw, I’m so addicted with this tools. On this draw I used a pencil to sketch the outline and the figure. After that, I’ve tried to add some charcoal in the background to make the figure came out.

Well, I think this experiment was quite success.  *I hope 😀

So, what do you think?  Continue reading “Drawing people project #2”


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.

Realism studies #1

This was my first gesture studies for Realism. I take a figure picture from the web. I draw this using HB pencil on my Aohwen sketchbook. On this gesture, I tried to pay attention in the value and shape, more than the figure it self.

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.

Dari Malioboro, Indonesia

Malioboro. Kawasan tempat orang berlalu lalang untuk belanja, jalan-jalan belanja dan jalan. Hidup yang indah dan diimpi-impikan oleh semua orang tentunya. Hanya berjalan-jalan dan berbelanja -apapun-

Tidak perlu memikirkan tingginya angka korupsi, teori-teori konspirasi dalam setiap media  ataupun perut-perut kecil yang mengais-ngais meminta makan. Hanya self amusment yang mejadi pusat perhatian.

“asal gue seneng, lu mau apa, ini hidup-hidup gue bukan urusan loh! Kan yang penting gue ndak merugikan orang lain…”
