Day 904: Abandoned

Day 905: Abandoned


Reference image: pinterest link!

So, this was a bit of a smaller one for day 905 with a slightly simple but still interesting subject (or at least interesting if you like decay and abandonment). So this, I assume is inside an old home or medical/elderly home, not really that sure. Anyway, I quite like the outcome even though it is pretty simple and didn’t take all that long. I also didn’t think the chairs in it would be noticeable at all but it turns out you can see them which is nice. All in all a successful little sketch!

Till next time!


Day 840: Kingdom Death Monster, Screaming Antelope

Day 840: Kingdom Death Monster, Screaming Antelope


Reference image:on this page about halfway down, some images on this site are NSFW so please bear that in mind

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

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!


Day 805: Pumpkin

Day 805: Pumpkin

Time taken: 15 minutes

So, its a day later than actual Halloween but I needed something quick to sketch for day 805 and my pumpkin seemed like a completely appropriate subject that would fit the quick bill. Unfortunately, there’s not much else to say about it other than a late Happy Halloween to everyone and I hope you all enjoyed it!

Till next time!

Day 798: Duel, Alton Towers

Day 798: Duel, Alton Towers


Reference image: random link!

Time taken: 30 minutes

So, back to the trusty old .1 fine liner again and this time were inside Alton Towers and looking at the haunted house style dark ride there, Duel  However, although I didn’t mind the ride I choose the scene to sketch more for the actual building as I really like how it looks and the style that it’s done in, especially the wooden frame middle window bit. Fun little sketch which I managed to work on a lot faster than I thought I would and that I liked the outcome of! Hope you lot like it too!

Till next time!

Day 517: Old House

Day 517: Old House


Reference image: Unfortunately this was one of the tabs that were lost so apologies for that> I can’t even remember what site this was on either so my bad.

so this day was the last of the ones done with the felt tip pen as my new pen arrived shortly after I had finished this sketch. Just basically a random old house (though I think I saw it labelled as a old school somewhere). Probably the most detailed of the sketches that I have done with a brush nib and one of the more time consuming ones.

Pretty happy with the actual outcome but the sketch definitely didn’t excite me as much as the last couple did with all the still life things. To be honest, I think I may have gone a bit to detailed for the mood I was in that day but no worries, I still like the outcome. Only got time to upload this one today so will see you all tomorrow where hopefully I ‘ll have more time to upload blogs for you all!

Till then!

Day 516: The Doctor will see you now

Day 516: The Doctor will see you now


Reference image: My apologies again but as with the phone edge crashed and lost all my tabs. I know this was a photographer on deviantart though.

So, this is my favourite of the three still life ones I’ve done in the last few days. I love the whole sense of foreboding that a abandoned medical table gives, made even worse by the looming lights giving the impression of something staring down over you.

I purposefully emphasised them a bit in the sketch as well as they were easily my favourite part (I think I like drawing equipment and machines) though I like how stark the bed is in contrast to the room around it, almost as if its been recently cleaned unlike the room around it.

So, as you can probably tell I’m just really happy with how this one came out in genereal even though it does look very sketchy and rushed, it was just a really fun sketch and will hopefully bide you guys over until I can get more uploaded.

Till then!

Day 514: Prison Barber

Day 514: Prison Barber


Reference link: Pintrest clicky!

Bit of a change up today as we now have a bit of abandoned still life sketching in the shape of this ruined Prison Barbers chair. Quite an eerie and menacing looking photo that I had to sketch as it fit the current theme and was something a bit different to what I’d been sketching over the past week or so.

Really happy with how it came out as well I think the high contrast that I managed to achieve with the black shadows and the white chair as well as trying to texture the walls around the 0subject to help it stand out came out as planned. The one bit that I did struggle with a bit though while doing the sketch was trying to get the perspective correct but I like how it came out and I don’t think it shows that much

Apologies for anyone who read this before I realised that half of the text was missing. Don’t know what happened there but I’ve fixed it now and will see you all tomorrow!

Till then!
