This afternoon I finished up the final page and cover of my Sketchbook Project sketchbook. It feels so good to have it all finished and sent in!
I’ve edited and uploaded a few of the pages to flickr. In the interest of finishing up this series of posts, this will be a longer post than previous ones, but there will still be two more posts coming before I wrap it up.
This drawing was based on a previous sketch that I shared in the video I made back in November (around 3:47 in the video if you’re curious). I was surprised by how different this looked once the color and texture was added.
I snagged this idea from an old abstract sketch of pine branches that pre-dates my current art-only flickr account. I arranged it a little differently, so hopefully it’s not cheating too much.
This drawing was also borrowed from a sketch I’d done previously. I changed the arrangement of the shapes and the colors.
This was inspired by a photo I saw somewhere along the line of a building with red windows against a stone wall. The drawing itself changed a lot from the photo, and now I see all kinds of things in the drawing from turtle shells to houses.
This drawing has a Native American flavor, similar to the dream catcher drawing that is also in this sketchbook. I like the directional feel of this one.
So that’s it for this batch. I’ll be adding one more post that shares the scanned pages and a conclusion post that will feature a video of the finished sketchbook as well as photos of some of the drawing tools I used.
