Oh my gosh, this is by far my favorite exercise so far! I want to draw more of these! I also want to live here. :)

Eh, not as happy with this one…. It feels a little half baked, I’m not really sure what it’s missing or what I could do to kind of fill it up a bit more. I like the concept just not the execution lol. Anyway, on to the next one! :)


7 Creative Exercises (1,2,3,4,5) in progress - image 3 - student projectIt took me a while to decide on a theme for this exercise. I am a barista so I took inspiration from that. I ended up choosing pretty warm colors even though I was picturing something different. I feel like this even further proves that I should just start sometimes instead of overthinking it.

Some of the ones I chose certain elements to sketch and some of them I kept it pretty straightforward. What a fun journey. My tattoos mean a lot to me and this took me on a little walk down memory lane, and now I want a tattoo :) Also, I kind of struggled with placement, so I decided to keep the tattoos as sort of stickers or maybe sketches taped onto a flat surface? At one time, I spent a lot of time in tattoo shops and around tattooers, and something that sticks out in my mind is sketches of various tattoos on vellum paper taped all over everything.

I really loved this exercise so much that I spent a couple days on it. I enjoyed just having fun and not worrying about the final product or whether or not these would be realistic. I can be a bit of a perfectionist so this was nice to loosen up and have fun. 
I am sharing a few different pages I did and also a little illustration that came out of one. I am using Procreate, hope that’s ok!
