Random Sketches #1

I’m starting a series of posts to show you my random sketches! Daily sketching (project sketches not included!) is really important for artists to continue improving and developing their skills. I am not able to do it every single day though, but I try to sketch as much as I can.

Sometimes it’s nice to challenge yourself and pick random themes online. I discovered 1000thingstodraw.com and they really have interesting ideas to draw.

Below are my sketches with themes from 1000thingstodraw.com

Illustration Friday #18 “Stripes”

Because I love stripes, I sure can’t miss this week’s Illustration Friday. I played around with textures and ended up putting just little touches on both the character and the background.

Total Girl’s November Music Issue

This month’s issue of Total Girl Philippines is all about music! I made an illustration for one of the music articles and another for the monthly TG to the Rescue section.

Illustration Friday #15 “Winter”

Christmas is over, but the winter season is still around. In some parts of the globe, roads, houses, trees, cars and everything else outside are all covered with snow (well, not where I live).

It’s all about winter in this week’s Illustration Friday.
