The end of Inktober 2019

IMG_20191016_164521I am not going to lie I am quite happy Inktober is over now. I did find my love for drawing back. But with school I sometimes had some trouble finding the time. I already
expected this when I started. This was the reason that I made doodles instead of full drawing.

 

What I learned from this.

I found my love for drawing back. I had not drawn for a few months. So it was really nice to start making little drawings again.

But I realised that I like to make quick drawings. Draw an avocado on toast, a ghost and special love for faces. I really love drawing faces as you might have seen by now.

 

But  I am happy I did it. Which is the most important thing.

I do prefer a pencil

This week I found out that I do prefer a pencil over the ink. Not to erase but to make the lines softer. If I had used different ink and different way to apply that ink I would have been able to make the lines softer. But I did not do that.

The thing I liked about using a pen for inktober was that I always had one around. And it is really easy to use. But with a pencil, I smudge out some of the lines with my finger. This makes the lines softer. Sometimes that gives a different feel to a drawing or doodle.

 

My doodles for this week:

I do not like drawing I like doodling

Last week I really fell back in love with drawing. Or so I thought. I realised that I like to make a quick drawing. Or at least most of the time. I still like making a portrait once in a while. But that always take 8+ hours. Sometimes you just need a quick fix. So a doodle will do just fine. Than expectations are not so high. Than it is fine if you mess up.

 

Doodles for the weeks inktober

Food moon

We had to stand in the middle of a dark room. There were pictures everywhere that we thought was the moon. There were different moons on each photo, the craters were in a different place. So it couldn’t be a moon at all. our guide started to tell his story. He said they were all pancakes instead of the moon.

I think it’s brilliant that someone came up with the idea of photographing something as simple as a pancake so that it looks like something completely different. The pancakes were placed on a bowl or a sphere to simulate the curve of the moon. And it was photographed just next to the window to also simulate the reflection of light, just like the real moon.

I think it is beautifully simple.

Explore Breda

In the first few weeks of our first year, we got the task to explore Breda. And make a 2D design of 30cmx30cm about it.

So I took a few photo’s of the lovely art that you can find in Breda.

While I went through the city I noticed that the city was quite clean for a city of this size. But it was mostly clean in the parts that people see. When I went to the parts where people live and you only go if you need to be there it is less clean.

After that, I found a site which showed soil quality in the city. I found out that the ground that our school is on is potentially serious. I can hear you wonder what that really means. (I still do not know this.) To find an answer I send an e-mail to the municipality which sends me a file with information about the property. Unfortunately, it did not really help. So I worked with what I had and made the following illustration.
