Dessin au crayon et fusain. Une jeune femme nue, de 3/4 dos, bras pendant un peu détachés du corps, le gauche partiellement masqué par le haut de la cuisse gauche. Les jambes légèrement écartées. Les cheveux très noirs coupés carré sur la nuque laissent deviner le visage de profil dans l'ombre. La cambrure du dos et la contre cambrure des jambes donnent une impression de calme stabilité.
la lumière provient du haut à gauche, de sorte que le dos et les reliefs postérieurs sont bien éclairés, tandis que la partie antérieure est ombrée.

#pencil #sketchbook #drawing #fediArt

An open sketchbook full of mostly early 1900s people portrait sketches.

Page one: 1) A stoat (Mustela erminea) standing on its hind legs. 2) A moustachioed older man from 1860, with graying hair and a military uniform. 3) A miniature full body view of a man with his back turned to the viewer, wearing a dark coat and long striped sash streaming behind him as he walks away with an arm raised, holding a long thin stick. 4) A Tibetan Sikkim woman from circa 1890, wearing Lhasa-style clothes which include a headband decorated with what seems to be large dark pearls over her black and glossy hair and elaborate beaded necklaces. 5) A woman from c. 1900 wearing a dark dress, looking to the side. Her chignon is a bit loose and she's serious, almost sorrowful.

Page two: 1) A woman from 1870 wearing what might be an evening garb, with a pearl necklace and her hair partially up in a braid, the rest streaming down her back. 2) A stoat in profile. 3) Two tiny people, the 1st a woman in a light dress, holding flowers, her hat also decorated with them; the 2nd a man sitting in a slouch, his suit open. 4) A woman looking at the viewer with a smirk. 3) A young Black boy holding the reins of a horse. He's wearing a newsboys-style cap, white shirt and trousers folded up to his knees, held by suspenders. 5) A more stylized older man with a dark hair and moustache and a miffed expression. 6) A young Black woman in a stripped dress, her hair up in a chignon, gazing serenely to the side.

And here comes the 20th page set! 🎉

Last week I tried black acrylics, hoping to reach the perfect black shadows and got the worst of the two worlds instead: Slightly washed out details that don't fit together with pencils while making the graphite shine obvious. Still worth the try! 😂

#pencil #sketchbook #DailySketches #art

An open sketchbook with mostly pencil drawings of late 1800s people.

Page one: 1) A beautiful Black woman in 3/4, her glossy hair arranged in a low chignon. She's wearing a white dress. 2) A stylized black-footed ferret (Mustela nigripes). 3) A Black man staring at the viewer with a solemn expression. He's got a thinning moustache and closely cropped hair. 4) A handsome Sikkim Bhutia man from 1860s. The Sikkimese live in the the northeastern India, bordering the Tibet. 5) A woman looking over her shoulder. She's wearing her short dark curly hair in a classic 1937 style, but her clothes are more traditional. 6) Six late 1800s Indian people seen from afar (3 on this page, 3 on the next). There's not much detail to them and they have varied poses such as sitting, leaning against walls or holding objects.

Page two: 1) A hanfu model looking to the side with a serene expression. She's got a fringe and long black hair, adorned with classic hanfu-revival pins. 2) Naser al-Din Shah Qajar, the 4th Shah of Qajar Iran, circa 1880. He's got a nice moustache and is wearing what might be a sikke hat — a plain tall conical hat made from camel wool, though his is black. 3) A mature Persian woman in profile from late 1800s wearing a chevron hijab. 4) A Mohave shovel-nosed snake (Chionactis occipitalis). 5) A mature man with a serious, almost sad expression. He's got graying hair, neatly arranged, and a thinning moustache.

This is a sketch of a gecko drawn in pencil. He's sitting (human-style) on a chair lounging by a pool (not shown). He's got a drink in his hand with a straw coming out of it. There's an umbrella above him for shade. The chair is slatted. Below his feet is a beach towel with some folds in it that reads "#cozy".

This is a good moment to mention I really love maned wolves. They are such beautiful and bizarre creatures, and tremendously underrated as anthros. They also belong in their own separate genus and thus they are not real wolves, nor foxes, truly fascinating!

(And yes, I know maned wolves don't live in Mexico, but I really wanted to draw a macuahuitl).

#pencil #sketchbook #fediArt

An open sketchbook with portraits of people from late 1800s, early 1900s and a few other mixed sketches.

Page one: 1) A young woman looking rather sternly at the viewer. She's got dark hair gathered in a low, wide chignon covered by a net with metallic or gemstone details. 2) A man in profile looking at cards in his hand. He's frowning, has dark hair, strong eyebrows and reddish cheeks. 3) Tiny full body sketches of three people, a boy in suit and a flat cap, a younger shorter blonde girl in a light dress, and a sitting teenager with long braided hair and a stripped dress and apron. Their faces are obscured by the distance. 4) A young blonde man in profile. He's got a somewhat anachronistic disconnected haircut style. 5) A beautiful black headed python (Aspidites melanocephalus).

Page two: 1) A dark-haired woman looking to the side. It's my take on a painting, not a photo, by Mihály Zichy. 2) A handsome man looking at the viewer with a neutral expression. 3) A young dark-haired woman with ringlets falling over her shoulders. She's got a noble, if not almost concerned, countenance. 4) Surrounding her in the white space are made up silvery fishes. 5) A young Black woman in 3/4 profile. She's got a slight prominent jaw due an underbite, and she's very pretty. 6) A mature man with a white dog on his lap. He's frowning at the sun, wearing a conical cap to protect his eyes, and is overweight, with full lips and a round face.

Drawing. 9 drawings of a pencil as it might look for individual professions.
No1 is the writer: his pencil is very short. No2 is a teacher: his pencil is perfectly sharpened and normal size. No3 is the designer: The pencil is medium length, but the pencil tip is as long as the actual pencil. No4 is the trainer: normal length, but it is nibbled under the rubber. No5 is the psychologist: his pencil has no tip at the top or bottom. No6 The engineer: his pencil has two points. No7 The samurai: his pencil is cut exactly in the middle into two halve. No8: The fighter: his pencil is broken in the middle. And finally No9 The murderer: No pencil, but a pencil sharpener.
Behzad Nohoseini creates clever and witty illustrations in the form of small charts for many topics. Always funny, but also cryptic.

I do not always sketch per se, sometimes I just make broad marks until I can see something beginning to appear. Then I “carve” the object with pencil and eraser, letting the paper and graphite decide where ridges and valleys should appear. It’s meditative and low pressure. Sometimes I even find new compositions for use later.

Page one: 1) A frowning mature man in profile. He's a bit overweight, balding and got sideburns, but no beard on his chin. 2) A startled-looking hawk with its head thrown back, beak wide open saying "AH!" on a speech bubble. 3) A girl smiling at the viewer. Her dark straight hair is loose and thrown to the side, giving her a relaxed look. 4) A serious Black man staring intently at the viewer. He's got a moustache, closely-cropped hair and kind eyes. 5) A teenager looking into the distance. Her large doe eyes give her an appearance of innocence. She's fat with full cheeks. Her hair falls onto her shoulders in luxurious curls and she's also sporting short bangs.

Page two: 1) An older man almost in profile. He's clad in a military uniform complete with epaulettes. His hair is light or graying, and he's got a moustache. 2) A smiling woman in profile. She's got a classic 1900s chignon and is wearing a white dress. 3) Iron Tail (Siŋté Máza), an Oglala Lakota Chief and performer with Buffalo Bill's Wild West. He's smiling and looking up, to the side. 4) A man in a suit, staring at the viewer. His hair is dark, slicked and combed back and to the sides, intensifying the looks of his wide forehead. He's got an also carefully groomed handlebar moustache.

On the sides of his head there are two rings with antenas, from which goes holographic image of neon green-yellow pigtails. He is dressed in tight sitting purple and green onesie. The pose is dynamic, like running. In one of his hands he holds a battle knife.

Nur finds the courage to show his face... usually this is where all his potential dates bail out.

For context, he received these wounds during a battle, when a grenade landed right next to him. Surprisingly, he survived, but he developed a slight speech impediment due to the muscular damage.

She has dark hair and is wearing a white dress with large shoulder fabric decorations. 3) A blonde boy of around 11 with a small jaw, noticeable ears and narrow eyes, the resulting face shape an inverted traingle. 4) A Tibetan girl of about 3 years with her hair up in pigtails and a cute smile. There are other two portraits of her in this page, almost in profile with a serious expression and fully in profile, with a neutral face.

Page two: 1) A Black girl of about 13, her dark hair falling over her shoulders in ringlets and a supressed smile on her lips. 2) A Black girl of about 6, looking at the camera with a serious to neutral expression. She's got doe eyes and a round gentle face. 3) A Black (source described as "colored") girl of about 3. She's possibly of Puerto Rican heritage, looks Latinx. She's got two small white ribbons on her curly, dark brown hair, and a very serious expression. 4) A girl of around 2 with a huge ribbon on her short dark hair and a royally pissed off stare complete with a frown, pursed lips, and a slightly wrinkled nose. 5) A dark blonde boy of around 5 looking into the distance. He's possibly the older brother of the pissed off girl.

Thought I would share this. I'm picking up more studies and this is one I finished. All 7 images were drawn in pencil. I think the top left pumpkin was drawn using mechanical pencil before I switched to my traditional pencils to practice better habits. Long story short, I finished an Creature Art Teacher video from one of Aaron Blaise's instructors. I was watching him draw these things so I tried to draw them too. The dragon is debatable in my opinion.

#Art #Pencil #MastoArt #Study

There are 7 doodles total in two rows. The left is a pumpkin with a shadow to the left. In the top middle is a pig possibly a piggy bank with a very angry face. The shadow falls on the pigs leftward half. To the top right is a chair with the shadow falling across it and the floor to it's left. Bottom left is a guitar. I have one top down view that is larger then a slightly side view above it. In the bottom middle is a owl sitting on a branch with most shadows on it's right. There is a small arrow pointing down from the left to indicate light direction. Bottom right is a large dragon with the tail behind the owl's branch and one of the dragon's horns on it's head overlapping the chair in the top right. There are faint trees but they are hard to see in this low light image.

#pencil #sketchbook #fediArt

Page 1: 1) A young man staring into the distance. He has wavy hair brushed backwards and a squareish jaw, but not a square face. 2) A young woman smiling at the camera. Her curly hair is arranged in a voluminous short bob complete with a voluminous 60s-like bang, but she's from 1936. 3) A teenager looking off camera. He's got prominent ears complimenting his angular features, hair parted in the middle and a slight slouch that looks very causal. 4) A Black woman in profile. Her hair is in a braided bun, and she's wearing a cool coat.

Page 2: 1) A cute Banded Sea Krait snake (Laticauda semifasciata). 2) A young woman looking into the distance. Her dark hair is arranged in an invisible bun tied with a white ribbon, coordinated with a white dress. She was in the same photo of the first portrait in the previous page. 2) Discreet leaves doodles. 3) A dark-haired man looking into the camera. His hair is wavy and a bit casual, but he's wearing clothing that reminds me of a pastor. 4) A Black man looking to the side. He's got a thin moustache and is wearing a boater hat and light clothes. I accidentally made him look kinda like Will Smith and spent the rest of the drawing trying to correct it. 5) A laughing baby. They're adorable, with flushed cheeks and a glint in their eyes.

Page 1: 1) An elderly man with hair only on the sides of his skull and a white beard in the shape of an inverted triangle. 2) A young Black woman looking into the camera. Her hair is arranged in a high and flat bun on the top her head, kept in place by a discreet net and a silk string. 3) A glossy eel of undefined species because it was drawn from imagination. 4) A woman in profile, dark wavy hair in a low bun. She looks vaguely Latin. 5) Another woman in profile, young with a round face and a smile on her lips. She's wearing her hair in an almost flat bun. 6) A girl with her back to the viewer, looking to the side. Her light hair braided and tied with a ribbon.

Page 2: 1) An elderly Black man, with dark hair parted in 3/4 and a saltpepper, almost white round beard. 2) A young man staring into the camera. His hair wavy is parted in 3/4, the tips curling up in a style reminiscent of the character Wolverine. 3) A woman with her hair presumably arranged back into a bun. It's curly and dark, cut into a microbang. It suits her square face. 4) A young Hopi woman wearing her hair in the traditional 2-side-buns style. Star Wars' Leia style was based in this ethnic hairstyle. The real thing is far more impressive.

Pages from last week, a bit later than usual.

My routine was upended and I ended up doing a couple of these out in the public standing weirdly in waiting lines. Got my fair share of odd looks! 😅

#pencil #sketchbook #fediArt

An open sketchbook with portraits of people from early 20th century.

Page 1: 1) A handsome man with a neatly kept short beard and shiny slightly wavy hair. 2) 1936's portrait of Anna May Wong (Wong Liu Tsong), a Chinese-American silent film actress. She's wearing a small close-fitting hat with a veil and smiling sweetly at the camera. 3) A young Black woman looking off camera with a serene expression. Her dress is adorned with a large ribbon or perhaps cravat on the neck. 4) A young woman with a classic late 1800s bun. She's chubby and has gentle features. Her dress is pretty, with an outer dark layer laced over another made of thinner white fabric. 5) A woman in profile, smirking and looking down. Her bun hairstyle is arranged in multiple layers.

Page 2: 1) A house sparrow peeking at the camera, half in each page. 2) A man with a round face, balding head and rather thin moustache. He's staring directly at the camera with a gentle expression. 3) A Black man looking to the side. He's a captain and is wearing a 1880s uniform. 4) A young woman smiling gleefully at the camera. He wavy brown hair is tied in a bun with a large ribbon. 5) A young Black woman staring solemnly at the camera. She's wearing a checkered cravat or scarf and a cool structured coat of a thick fabric adorned with large flat metal buttons. 6) Fishes peeking out of the inner corner of the page.

I just found myself looking up "waterproof pencil" on Amazon. This century is fucking stupid.

My youngest asked for drawing lessons this morning, so I drew his bestie “bun bun”. Now it just needs a frame. #pencil #art ❤️

A graphite pencil drawing of a small stuffed bunny with soft subtle shading. The bunny has the words “I love you right up to the moon and back” on its tummy.

I enjoyed doing this artwork, something a little different, a mix of human, animal and design elements.

Was mich an meinem #Apple #Pencil wirklich in den Wahnsinn treibt:
- plötzliches Verbindung zum #iPad verlieren (trotz ausreichendem Ladestand)
- reconnect dann nur mit angeschlossenem Kabel möglich
- damit der Pencil funktioniert, muss das Kabel wieder getrennt werden (inzwischen weiß ich das, das hat mich anfangs zur Verzweiflung getrieben)

Newest pages. I couldn't wait to put the recently acquired paint and charcoal to good use. Shading feels sufficiently comfy now I'm starting to stylize the form again.

Sooo, any suggestions on a material with deep matte blacks like charcoal, but that won't smudge worse than graphite? 😅

I like the charcoal look, but it's hell heh. Looking at some videos, pastel seems to smudge as much. Maybe some higher quality color watercolor pencil for softness?

#pencil #ArtistsOnMastodon #sketchbook

An open sketchbook with graphite portraits of a variety of people, some more stylized, some closer to their likeness. A charcoal pencil was used to get deeper blacks, and off-white acrylic for some highlights and emphasis on edges.

Page 1: A middle age man from 1890, in profile. He has a beard and wavy short hair, balding, rendered in a discreet sytlized way by going a bit geometric compressing the values range; A quati (Nasua Nasua), an omnivorous animal species from South America. They're cute, with a roundish body and long snouts and striped tails, being related to raccoons. It's also looking to the side, walking, and is very stylized in a gesture drawing way; A chinese hanfu model looking at a book, head slightly down. Her very dark hair is fashioned in a complex tradition style involving buns and strands artistically woven into them. It's adorned with two headpieces of small white flowers; A woman from a Swedish 1946 movie still. She has her hands on her waist and is facing the camera, but looking to the side with dissatisfaction.

Page 2: Another middle age bearded man. He has a round face, slightly longer darker hair and a subtle frown. He's wearing a bowtie and seems trustworthy; Sophie Scholl, frowning and looking up. She was a 1940's German student and anti-fascist, convicted of high treason by Nazi German for her activism; A mirthful young man in a boxing pose, in profile, shirtless, and with nice wavy hair; A woman from 1920's, staring at the camera in a mugshot.

A tiny illustration. The first signs of spring are visible here, inspiration followed.

Made with aquarelle and Caran d'Ache coloured pencils. 7,5x10,5cm Part of a series of tiny illustrations I am working on at the moment.

A detailed view of the tiny illustration. You can see a blue pencil giving more detail to the blue of the sky on the left corner of the illustration, behind the tree. Full description of the image, see third photo.

A tiny illustration, 7,5x10,5cm. It is oriented vertically. Two trees stand tall on the left and right side. They are painted in brown-green tints on the bottom and going up, the colour goes into reds and orange tinted browns. On the ens of the branches hang big red, crimson pink flowers. On the other branches the flowers are growing, still in their buds. The first leaves start showing. In the trees are little birds in a blue outline. In the middle, on the ground, stands a little witch. She has a crimson hat, blue, wild, curly hair and wears a green-ochre dress. She reaches for one of the flowers in the tree. Next to her sits a sater (see greek mythology.) They are there, in the twilight. Sun down or sun up, you choose.

New pages just dropped! Drawing tiny is in my DNA.

#pencil #sketchbook #artistsonmastodon

An open sketchbook with pencil portraits of people mostly from late 1800s.

Clockwise, page 1: A smiling elderly Maori woman; an aristocratic elderly man in suit and bow tie; supposedly Frida Kahlo; profile of a woman in her 25s-30s with loose curly hair; a 20s-30s dark-haired Swedish pastor; a man with his wavy hair smartly arranged with some oily substance and a cool beard.

Page 2: Frowning man with glasses (looks like a professor!); frowning mature woman Inuit who worked as a guide in 1880; curly-haired woman leaning slightly forward with full of 1920s-noir energy; man seen from afar, curved forward and holding a piece of fabric as if putting a fire out.

Sketching is one of my favourite things - I love getting out in the open air with sketchbook - which I'm lucky to be able to do! Here's a couple of sketches from my sketchbook: 'King's College Chapel' at Aberdeen University and 'Cullen Harbour View' - both views from the north-east of Scotland. The second view, of the harbour, became one of our print range when painted in full colour and more detail.

#sketching #pencil #sketchbook #drawing #mastoart #art #watercolour

A sketch of a chapel with a spire just left of centre, with trees at right and extreme left. Outside the chapel is a wedding group, and a low statue on the grass.
A sketch of a fishing village (Cullen) in northern Scotland. In the foreground are the piers of the harbour with some boats moored; in the middle distance are the fishermen's cottages and behind, on the hills are the arches of a viaduct carrying a railway line. At top right is a ruined castle with a flag.

I've got 9 days off work and a colleague asked me if I had anything planned. No, I replied, maybe some painting. Then two days running I'm getting seagulls on signs. Obviously a sign.

Hey #art #fedivers, can anyone tell me how to scan in #pencil colured work and not have it so washed-out looking? Thanks in advance.

Scanned this pencil coloured image in and it looks horribly washed out. Anyone know why?

I was thinking about opening this kind of commissions when I open my store. Does anyone know some strong cardboard packaging so my drawings don't bend during shipping? It's my main problem right now 😅

(By the way, the process of the orange cat drawing is on my Patreon too 😗 🎶)

Vous me conseillez quelles #applications #iPad pour faire du dessin de #logotype et des #illustrations avec le #Pencil ?
Idéalement il faut que ça s’intègre bien avec #Figma, c’est pour faire des interfaces ensuite :)
