Self-portrait

drawing, painting

This is a self-portrait I did today using pencil and watercolor. I’ve drawn self-portraits before, but never done it with watercolor. It’s really small, the paper is just slightly bigger than a postcard, so it was pretty easy, but  I like how it turned out.

Don’t know what to draw, draw a dragon

drawing

I haven’t drawn anything for a few weeks now because I injured my right hand while lifting some heavy boxes, but now it’s finally  better enough to draw with a pencil (it turns out drawing with pens requires a lot more physical effort).

Anyway, I wanted to draw something and just chose the first thing that popped into my head, which happened to be a dragon. Being a big nerd when it comes to dragons, I wanted to draw one that’s anatomically convincing, so I started with a skeleton sketch, then printed it out and traced it for the final drawing.

Made a pencil sketch of my youngest niece from a photo:

An old self-portrait

drawing

Found this sketch from about two years ago, back from when I still had long hair. I can’t figure out what exactly I like about it, but there’s something in it that feels right – even though it’s old, pale and unfinished.
