sketching

It has been almost a week since I updated here. It is about time I posted some new sketches. Here are some of my smaller sketchbook.


That was it for now, I have some illustrating and comic coloring to do!

Mixed Media

Yesterday I had my final lesson of Mixed Media. It is always a surprise what the next subject will be when we enter the class room. This time we had to make maquettes of spaces or rooms. I actually wanted to make a data center but it ended up as a destroyed city or something. After that we took pictures of it and tried different effects with lighting and such. Here are my results, I like how different light or angles can make it look so different.


I made this in a cardboard box and painted the insides black.



This last one is my favourite, I think it has a very mystical atmosphere. Seems like something nice to try out at home too.

sketchbook 170

Tomorrow I will be heading to school again so I guess I should scan the new stuff of my sketchbook now. Tomorrow it will be filled with new things.
The sketches of the first image are for a fashion project at school, I made some kind of clothing and I will show that tomorrow as well. It came out pretty bad though, I cannot sew at all. I will not be posting it here.

ecoline, ballpoint and knitting

Even though it is 30 degrees Celsius outside, I am still knitting. I actually find knitting more convenient for this kind of weather since it is too hot to draw.

So yeah, here is a preview of a scarf I am working on. I will not try it on today I guess.

Here is an ecoline experiment. I am still struggling to get this medium under control. Maybe the point of this medium is to not have control over what happens in the picutre xD
(I uploaded this one to DeviantART too)

And finally finished this big ballpoint drawing. I am not too fond of it actually, but I hope I learnt from it at least.

drawing class

Saturday I had my final drawing class of this school year. This time we had to write stories based upon images we found and then draw things of those stories. I might post the stories later, they were pretty cool I think. It would be in Dutch though.

Anyway here are some of the things I drew:




For the final stage we put the images on the floor and made a collage of it. This was my result.

photo update

New things happened so I guess it is time for a new photo update!

This was a surprise form my mother, this was a belated birthday present. It is a new sketchbook. Sketchbooks are always useful for me. :>

My cousin got married and I drew them a little card.

My hamster felt like exploring the floor. After taking this picture I picked her up. It is way too dangerious for her to be near a cable. What if she bites it?

painted a bit for school, as usual this could use some more work. xD

I started painting one of the small canvasses (canvases? Canvas in plural)  with some leftover paint.

[Dutch] een verhaal over vandaag

This blog post will be in Dutch only, since it will contain some of my writing. I do not write often but I felt inspired today.

-


Voor de verandering ga ik hier nu dus Nederlands schrijven. Vroeger schreef ik veel, het is de laatste tijd veel minder geworden. Dit stukje heb ik vandaag tijdens mijn werk op papier gekrabbeld. Programmeerwerk lijkt soms mijn brein te vergiftigen, dus ik had wat afleiding nodig. Dit stukje is dan ook semi-autobiografisch. Het gaat over een programmerende vrouw, die er eigenlijk niet voor gekozen heeft.

-

Ze zat daar maar. Aan haar bureautje. De andere programmeurs waren ijverig aan het werk. Ze keek naar links, naar de witte mok die deze dag thee, chocolademelk en water heeft bevat. De restanten chocolade zijn nog zichtbaar. Vergezeld van het gekuch en gemuis van haar collega's staart ze naar het scherm. 16:41, de werkdag is bijna voorbij. Ze kan haast niet wachten.
Ooit had ze bij toeval het idee gekregen om ICT te studeren, nu heeft ze daar spijt van. "Dit is niet wie ik ben." denkt ze. Het zwarte toetsenbord, de naamloze tafel, het eeuwige beeldscherm met krioelende tekens. Stef zucht. Blijkbaar gaat het bij hem ook niet vlot. Al lijkt hij meer gemotiveerd. Hij zat er al toen ze vanochtend om 3 over 9 kwam aansjokken.
"Zouden ze geen spijt hebben van hun keuze?" vraagt ze zich af.

Code. Lappen vol regels zijn op haar scherm. Het wordt logica genoemd. Zij vindt er niets logisch aan. Waar de syntaxis haar vroeger mysterieus had geleken, wekt het haar nu alleen maar irritatie op. Niet meer begrijpend scrollt ze erdoorheen, alleen maar om de illusie op te wekken dat ze druk bezig is. Hekjes, slashes, komma's en puntkomma's. Zo ongeveer alle leestekens zijn vertegenwoordigd. If $user_id is in_array($users) doe dit, else doe dat. Het echte leven kan niet zo makkelijk opgedeeld worden.

-

Over ICT, foute studiekeuzes en het technische keurslijf zou ik een hele roman kunnen schrijven, denk ik. Vooral over vrouwen die erin terecht komen en zich er niet thuis voelen.
Misschien ga ik vaker dingen schrijven. Ik had eraan gedacht om een nieuw blog hiervoor te maken, maar ik denk dat ik het gewoon op dit blog houd. Met meerdere blogs wordt het lastig bijhouden.

sketches



Today went by pretty fast.
And woah, I posted here twice on a day. That does not happen often. It is a painting I should have posted earlier anyway. Oh well, at least I feel sort of productive now. Tomorrow brings a new day of work. I am not looking forward to it. It is not drawing-related work if you get what I mean.

booth

This image started as just a doodle of that girl but then I drew all these things around it.

face drawings



These faces are drawn after photos from a book about knitting. It was called "Ik hou van breien" (I love knitting, in Dutch). It was full of knitting patterns and photos of people wearing the knitted clothing. I did not find a useful pattern to knit though. Most of the patterns were too complicated for my current knitting skills. Guess I stick to knitting small pieces of cloth for my blanket again.

At the moment I really love this song. I discovered it today while looking for good music to paint with.

ecoline and ink

I have been making more  things with ecoline. To me it seems like water color, but then with brighter colors and more fluid. And you can also draw with it, which is pretty cool I think.

Painting with it brings very unexpected results.

This last one is not finished yet, I do like this result so far. The lines and the planes actually follow different "rules". One is all about keeping strict form and the other one just goes everywhere.


And I finally finished this big drawing, it is A2-sized! It's about insomnia. The girl cannot sleep and looks at the clock all the time. (also uploaded this on DeviantART.)
