So, decided to do another Bi-plane for day 836, this time however I managed to find this more modern version with a fully enclosed cockpit (that I genuinely didn’t know actually existed till I found it on Pinterest lol. Really nice looking plane actually and very quick to sketch which was nice with it also coming out quite nicely. Oh and it has sons seal of approval as well which is good!

Till next time!

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 791: Babbacombe Model Village, Grand House

Day 791: Babbacombe Model Village, Grand House

Time taken: 20 minutes

So, this was a rather nice large house made up of several different building types including a stone and brick structure and a wooden beamed structure which I think had something to do with fox hunting though I’m not completely sure to be honest. All I know is that the tow structures together looked pretty nice so thought I would take a picture and then do a sketch of it for you all.

Till next time!

So this is a slightly less successful attempt at drawing a suspension bridge from the model village. No idea if it was actually based on a real bridge somewhere or not but it was still quite a fun little scene in the village which had the train going over it every now and then (which, predictably my son loved), just wish I had managed to get it drawn a bit more accurately than I have.

Till next time!

Day 788: Babbacombe Model Village, Village Houses

So, this lovely little scene from Babbacombe was pretty much one of a variety of British village architectural styles put onto one street (or at least that’s what I assume it is). Quite a fun little sketch as well with all the different styles and varying roof line in it and one that came out quite nicely in the end.

Till next time!

Day 787: Babbacombe Model Village Wombley Stadium

Again were in the model village with its football stadium. A version of Wembley Stadium (name changed though to Wombley). Quite liked the building in this (though not that much of a football fan) and really like how the angles came out in this as the perspective seems to work really well. I did change one thing though as I couldn’t do with Arsenal beating Chelsea so swapped the score around using artistic licence!

Till next time!

 

Day 785: Babbacombe Model Village, Funicular Railway

So, this was another little scene of a Funicular railway which I struggled to get a good photo of due to its location. Still I managed to get this one and get this sketch from it so I’m not going to complain too much about it. Funnily enough though my favourite part of the sketch is the little car on the cliff to the right of the scene.

Till next time!

Day 784: Babbacombe Model Village Radar Scene

Time taken: 25 minutes

So, just a quick little sketch for yesterday of the mock up scene of a radar station at Babbacombe. Loved the amount of detail in this scene (and all of the scenes to be honest) and actually really enjoyed sketching it, especially the radar ball as the shape was a lot more interesting  than the shapes that I usually sketch. Anyway I hope you guys like the little scene!

Till next time!

Time taken: 25 minutes

So, another sketch of a rollercoaster from Thorpe Park, this time of the one time record holder for most inversions, Colossus (held it with 10 inversions for several years) made by Intamin AG. Was one of the first extreme rollercoasters that I ever rode, and although its beginning to get a bit rough (and gives my wife a headache), I still like it and its a fun coaster!

Till next time!
