|Finally, it is done! I've successfully completed my second Moleskine sketchbook! :)|
It took me more than 2 years to finish this sketchbook, since I am also working on other books and projects simultaneously.
55 designed double pages. Dozens of working hours, but also hours of joy and recreation.
|In the following, I want to give you a small recap and show you the highlights - or at least the sketches which I consider to be the best of my sketchbook ;)|
|This is my favorite double page, because it marks a great personal achievement: I've finally managed to draw my favorite Guardian Force adequately to it's powerful appearance.|
I also like the way the colours blend into each other. I hope that I will be able to draw something like that without further reference in the future *keeps practising* :)
|I remember drawing Freddy during the night of Halloween and I've learned very much about colour-blending and the handling of colored pencils.|
The hat is still my favorite part of the picture with its soft gradient on the left.
|My second volume is definitely the book of Hannibal - 8 double pages were dedicated to it :'D.|
The second double page (excluding the intro) shows the beginning of my obsession at the end of 2011 when I got highly addicted to the Hannibal movies at first.
The picture above however, shows Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) from the identically named and well constructed TV show from 2013 which I started watching immediately at first broadcast (and I got addicted to it as well).
It is my favorite sketch, because I really like the composition with the skulls and the nonchalant handling of the graphite pencil I used.
Game of Thrones Fan Art - Petyr Bealish
|Oh Petyr, Petyr, Petyr. I guess, we both went slightly grey while drawing this portrait. :'D|
I am truly pleased with the cross-hatching in the face and the whole thing itself as one of my first calculated design attempts.
The Evolution of Dr. Hannibal Lecter
|The devil is in the detail, right? Well, the same goes for the depicted character as well as the artwork itself. Although I am not completely satisfied with the outcome of Anthony's and Mad's face, I still like this composition pretty much.|
(And yes, it's another Hannibal drawing - deal with it ;D)
|Probably the most detailed work in the book and yet pretty plain in design, but I simply wanted to see my fandoms united <3. Can you identify them all? ;)|
Here you can dip directly into the book and its pages:
Only a sketchbook with lots of mistakes is a good sketchbook which will lead you to improvement.
