Day 176(3 Days late?): Font Sketches

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

Not 100% sure how many days late I am at this point… I need to double check, but I will probably not get any posts in tomorrow because I really need to focus on packing… I will catch up ASAP probably in a week or so!

Today I just sketched out the Alphabet in a font that I like to doodle with sometimes. Pretty simple and self-explanatory!

This is a super short post… sorry!!

Day 143(4 days late): Sketch on a Paint Chip

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

Well, I was feeling better today… I made it through work with only a slight headache, but then it started getting really bad again on my way home, so I just crashed once I got home. So, I just did a simple sketch for this post on one of my many, many paint chips from work.

I was able to find one that was mostly unmarred except for the holes being ripped out. I just started sketching with a ball-point pen and let the flow of my hand guide me. It started to look like a bowling pin, so I decided to make it a curvy vase instead and added tulips. Then I added a framed mirror and a lamp. Simple, but I like the way the tilted composition of it turned out, although unintentional. Unfortunately, for the life of me I couldn’t get a good picture… so you’ll have to deal with this blurry one.

Sorry this is such a lame post… I just need to go to bed. If it makes it better, I didn’t have energy to make anything other than a can of fruit for dinner :neutral:

Day 94(3 days late): In Car Sketching

Posted by annagrace under Days 1-100

So, I’ve done quite a bit of traveling this weekend. I left immediately after work on Thursday for Nashville, left fairly early on Friday morning for Atlanta, went to a wedding that was an hour away from ATL in Canton and then back to ATL on Saturday, drove from Atlanta back to Nashville this morning and then (after spending about 40 min. in Nashville), I drove back to Knoxville to make it back in time for a party. WHEW! Just typing it makes me tired… At any rate, I did the majority of the driving for my grandmother and aunt, but I was able to just be a passenger some. When I got those opportunities, I did some sketching! Keep in mind that I only had one pencil (no sharpener) and was in a moving car…

Lamp

Fruit (I must like pears a lot…)

Person in scarf with extremely awkwardly proportioned facial features…

That last one’s pretty rough, but I didn’t have an eraser… and I figured I might as well show it to you!

One more post coming up in just a bit!

Day 27: Sketchy Scenes

Posted by annagrace under Days 1-100

Today’s project actually just started as me doodling while contemplating what to do for today! I ended up liking where the sketch was going, so I just continued it. This scene is what I feel like could be a cozy coffee shop or something.

Ignore the awkward angle of the couch… :)

I didn’t spend a ton of time on that sketch so you get a bonus project today :D

I came across my Prismacolor markers today and decided to do something with them. I contemplated a few different things, and then ultimately decided to recreate the pear drawing from Day 4 that I drew on my droid. My Mimom suggested I do a painting based off of it, but we’ll start with this Prismacolor sketch.

Anywho, there you have it! I really enjoy sketching and I think there will be a lot more of it in this project!
