I hope you’re week has been good. The weather here in the UK has been amazing bringing with it a lightness of spirit. With that lightness of spirit it has motivated me to switch up my art.
Change For Motivation
This week I have switched things up a bit, watching a lot of YouTube art videos again, practicing with shading and light and going back to doing some fashion croquis poses. I had narrowed in on faces but now I wanted to expand outwards again to other things as I was feeling bit ‘face flat’!
Digital or Paper And Pencil?
I also played around with Procreate on my iPad and one evening totally disappeared I was so engrossed! I was practicing lips as I find them quite difficult to get right. I tried starting with the middle of the mouth first and drawing that line then putting the others around it which has helped a lot. I am simplifying it a lot here as there are a few other steps but not many. I have put my paper version below.
Working both digitally and with paper I found equally satisfying and really enjoy both although digital is taking a lot more practice! My verdict is to use both and I will be keeping on switching up my art.

Until next week Happy Sketching.
