Sketch-A-Day 002

Learn more about the rules of and inspiration for Sketch-A-Day here.

What is it: Woman in a red bathing suit.

How long it took: 8 minutes start to finish

How many sketches I did today: 4

Total time spent sketching: 41 minutes

Materials used: My Wacom Bamboo tablet, Illustrator, and Photoshop (for clean up).

Other notes/details: The sketch was done freehand with no base drawing to “ink” from (obviously, because it sucks!)

What I like about it: I like the abstractness of it…not much else.

What I dislike about it: Pretty much everything else.  I need to have Adam give me another Wacom tutorial.  I’m no great artist, but had I been sketching this by hand it would have looked about a thousand times better.  I got almost nothing on this drawing the way I envisioned it.  So while the Wonder Woman drawing of yesterday had some redeeming fun loose qualities that I could enjoy even though it didn’t turn out how I had planned…this one really doesn’t.  Too bad. Wish I had time to go back and do another, but rules are rules (and I didn’t like anything I did today, so perhaps it’s futile anyway).

    well, for an 8 minute sketch i wouldn’t expect a masterpiece.
    it looks good to me

    Why don’t you do the next one in photoshop?

    I tried yesterday but couldn’t get it to use anything but the pencil – which is one of the big reasons I said I needed a new tutorial. :)
