Just another quick one for today of this lovely village scene in France built on a hill, making the focus this building in the foreground (in case you didn’t realise that). Loved the brick work on it and the way the windows and doors look so I hope I did it justice!

Till next time!

Time taken: 40 minutes

Bit more involved with the sketch from yesterday as it was the first one in a new sketchbook and I wanted to draw soemthign a bit different and choose this pose of the a Centurion from the game For Honour. Think I managed to get the pose down well and the proportion aren’t too bad in it (though the sword should be a bit bigger). I’m particularly happy with how the left arm came out (his left).

Till next time!

Had no idea what to sketch for day 844 so found me this little image of an old cottage which had a charm to it. no idea if I managed to capture any of that charm in the sketch but I had fun doing it and don’t think it turned out all that badly.

Till next time!

So, just another quick write up for this one, with the ruins of St Andrews Cathedral showing what I assume was one of the towers of the Cathedral. Love the rather precarious look of the tower as it looks like its goignt o collapse at any point and I loved the arches in the windows so decided to make this quick, fun little sketch of it!

Till next time!

So, this was one of the most unusual houses that I think that I’ve ever seen and had to be sketched. Quite why its been built here in the first place I have no idea but I love that someone had the guts to do so (unless it the cause of erosion and originally it was attached to the mainland in which case its still pretty epic how it hasn’t yet fallen into the sea. Anyway I tried to make sure that I put emphasise on the actual house rather than any of the other parts of the sketch and I think it worked well in achieving that aim and was a fun sketch to do!

Till next time!

Right time to do some catching up with these blog posts as I’m beginning to really fall behind again, starting with this WW2 British fighter classic, the Spitfire, another sketch demanded by my son. A nice and quick sketch that was done at a weird angle to see if I could get the perspective correct on it. Not sure I got it completely, but I think I just about managed it, was definitely easier thinking of it as shapes rather than a actual plane, thats for sure!

Till next time!

Time taken: 30 minutes

So, this is another of the monsters from the Kingdom Death Monster game, this time the Screaming Antelope, which is essentially, a large Antelope with a gaping maw in the chest surrounded by human hands (yep, this games is all sorts of weird). Fun little sketch with some nice shading on the artwork and I love how the head came out on the sketch.

Till next time!

 

Day 389: Kingdom Death Monster: White Lion

Time taken: 25 minutes

So, bit of a random departure from what we normally have on this blog as I’ve recently started watching Kingdom Death Monster playthroughs on youtube and wanted to sketch one of the monsters from it as the lore and designs of some of the monsters seems pretty cool. Anyway this is the first monster that you’ll face in the game in the form of the White Lion,  a strange lion creature with human hands. Interestingly I couldn’t find any drawings of it so I made this sketch from the picture of the miniature that’s included in the boardgame. Quite like how it came out as well though I wish I’d managed to make it look more horrifying or brutal looking.

Till next time!

Back in Paris for todays sketch with this view of one of the sides of the Louvre (no idea which side but I quite like it) as its the sort of architectural style that I like on buildings. Went pretty quickly with it as well and did it in a really loose manner while trying to get the important bits down as well and like how it came out even if there are some scale issues lol.

Till next time!
