September– Lunch Break Challenge Top Four(ish):

by on Sep.30, 2014, under Fiddzy's Artwork, Studies & Sketches

Here we go month number three and these weekday sketches are now fully apart of my daily life, even on my laziest of days! However despite saying that I did miss another three days this month, one thanks to an injury, one to work and the third due to a worrying case of drawers block, where I seemed to struggle to draw anything to a quality I would deem uploadable. But regardless of them three unfortunate days I do feel like I’ve had a really good month. Despite that one day of drawing amnesia I feel like almost all of the drawing I did this month has been of an improved standard to the norm, hopefully as an indication that this “lunch break challenge” is doing its job and helping to improve my illustration skills.

Unlike last month where I primarily looked at fur and mammalian form, this month did not have a set goal, but rather lots of weekly themed sketching bundles instead.

RatsSeptember Sketch 01 – Rats

While Septembers batch of drawings did not have an overriding theme, this study of two rats dose follow directly on from August’s theme of mammalian anatomy, where I tried to take what I had learnt from August and use on a series of rodent sketches. These two rats where the final in that series of sketches and by far my favourite of the bunch. While I am not overly proud of the close up of the rats face, I do quite like the full body piece as I feel this best reflects my new-found understanding of how to sketch fur and its form.

Birth Anatomy - PelicansSeptember Sketch 02 & 03 – Pelicans

These next two drawings (here merged into one) was from a week where I found myself obsessed with drawing Pelicans for no particular reason aside from the fact that I was getting bored of drawing furry mammals. What I like about these sketches is the simple application of colour, done here with some highlighter pens  I found stashed in a draw at work (with permission of course). This series of sketches was also a good refresh in practising how to draw birds in flight, one of the ultimate tasks I one day hope to master.

Anime Study - Fairy Tail CharactersSeptember Sketch 04 – Fairy Tail Characters

Finally during the final week of this month I decided to break away from the animal anatomy studies and instead start to look at improving my human anatomy understandings, in particular faces. However rather than rush straight into drawing realistic human faces, a subject I’ve never been particularly good at, I instead decided to give anime another crack. The anime I decided to look at for practice was my new favourite series Fairy Tail (Sorry Naruto you got trumped) and since I could not decide which one to pick for this blog post here’s my favourite four out of six (one got ruined when I attempted to colour it in… badly). One noticeable character above is Juvia who was the first female anime character I’ve ever attempted to draw.
