EDM#76 Draw some flowers (by Alex)

(click picture to zoom in)

Another EDM attempt on a single Daisy. I took a picture of it during my visit to the hydro power plants in Weser last week, and I thought, I just had to draw it. Even though the EDM challenge says "Flowers" so I guess my chibi sketches count as well ^^ I pressed a little too hard on my color pencils, and broke the lead a few times. And I also realized that I've been using a lot of blue and greens. My next color pencil drawing would be a lot of red and oranges :)
The picture is not so clear, so I might take a better one and repost tomorrow. I hope you like it.

Thank you all so much for your comments on my Rachel Weisz sketch. I'll try harder next time to increase the level of similarities. I am so glad you all liked it, as much as I enjoyed doing it.

Rachel Weisz (by Alex)

My 3rd celebrity sketch ^^ I've always liked Rachel Weisz because of her roles in a lot of films, and of course the comical role in The Mummy is probably which people remember the most. This picture is taken from the movie "Definitely, Maybe" and I thought her hair is gorgeous.
I've spent more than 3 hours just detailing the hair, which is the biggest part of the sketch I think. An hour before that for the outlines and rough details, and another hour in the end finalizing, and adding my silly touches as always. I had a lot of fun despite the time-consuming processes.
Tools used, 0.5mm and 0.7mm HB mechanical pencils, 2H and 4H wood cased pencils, and 6B pure graphite pencil, and of erasers of course! ^^
Thank you so much for all the compliments on the Panda. I'm so glad you like it, and I hope you like this one too. I'm showing the steps again.

EDM#44 Draw an animal (by Alex)

Another EDM post and an attempt on drawing fur/hair of possibly my favorite animal since I'm posting the 3rd panda now in this blog ^^ I know that there's still a lot to be improved, and I am starting to see why I should be using a needle as a stylus to get more natural strokes, rather than just the tip of my 0.5mm mechanical pencil. I am starting to love my Faber-Castell 6B Pure Graphite PITT Pencil. It makes it so much easier to do the dark areas.
My deepest apology to the grainy picture as I took this with my compact camera at night. I'll re-post the picture again when I am able to snap it with natural daylight(or maybe it's time for me get an SLR camera ^o^)
Many thanks to all of you who viewed and commented on my last sketch on Okuribito. I am glad you like it, and I hope you like the movie too :)

Departures おくりびと Okuribito (by Alex)

Departures won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film at the 2009 Oscars. A friend recommended it on Facebook, and posted a link to one of the tunes in the soundtracks(Beautiful Death), and while listening to that and browsing at the same time, something strange happened... My eyes started to become watery and tears started to roll. So I decided to watch the movie, and at first it was more like a comedy, because it was so funny... but of course, that part short-lived, and then you just need to watch it to know what's going on. ^^
It's a good movie, it's touched me, and inspired me to draw this picture. I have never put so much emotion in a piece of sketch before, but I was even listening to the soundtracks while drawing this. but I don't think that you're able to feel it because it doesn't transfer that well. But please, if you have a chance, look for it and watch the movie, and make sure Kleenex is always within reach ;)

Thanks again for your comments on my sketch of Sheon. He hasn't checked it yet, so I doubt that he knows about it... he's in for a surprise when it does ^^
