Nude sketches

I did some 1-minute gesture sketches using the Figure Drawing Training Tool, and another one that took maybe 5 minutes. The nude in grayscale was done some time ago but I forgot to post it here.

And these are some face sketches I did in a pub today after 3 beers, tee hee :P


take a deep breath and count to ten

It always amazes me how certain people have no shame at all. Not only will they claim your work as theirs, but upon confronting them about it, they will
a) blame it on "a friend who gave it to this person claiming he/she created it" (wait, what? then why are you saying you did it?)
b) have the nerve to say those drawings were copied from some reference book, even though most of them are scribbled directly from my morbid mind (what kind of book would offer references like this, anyway?), and some of them are parts of my own face or objects found around my room
c) call me immature, poorly raised and what not, because I did not accept the fact my own work was taken and presented as someone else's. Not even copied by the offender's own hand, which I would understand, since that would mean the said person is at least interested in gaining the skill herself.

Just because I don't write NELA DUNATO on every fucking piece of my work no matter how insignificant, someone jumps at the chance and yay, look what I'm drawing when I'm bored at school — right, electrical engineering is certainly what you're made of.

Steal this, bitches.

EDIT June 2011

The same person who did the above (posted my drawings on her Facebook profile as her own) also did this masterpiece. I warned the book author and they used another cover in the end. Some people never learn, eh?

A sketch a day keeps the insanity at bay

I'm trying to sketch something every single day, so I did this now although my eyes are dry and demand sleep... An ordinary human skeleton (reference: Images of the Human Body) and Caravaggio's John the Baptist. Skeletonwise, it's cool to compare how much one improved in the past year.

White and graphite pencil on colored paper.

lectures are boring III

I should make a category for these. Again sketched during the lecture. Obviously I haven't used reference, so some mistakes are evident, especially on the female — wrong direction of spine at the bottom (it should be aligned with the butt) and lower ribs are too narrow, but the figure silhouette is fine I think. Except that knees should be lower, but I ran out of paper space.


Black ballpoint pen.

eyes & lips

I'm not lazy, I was just very busy during the past week. Here's something from my sketchbook. (a couple of lips referenced from Jack Hamm, see books list for details.)
