sept 2022

Welcome to September 2022. This month is special because it’s my Fathers and Grandmothers birthday. My Grandmother is the same age as the late Queen. Congrats! I was in Sydney and Melbourne this morning. Didn’t do any artwork, but did attend APIDays Conference. When I returned to NZ I did a bunch of artwork - mostly from redditgetsdrawn. Enjoy ~

A crazy busy landscape line drawing with both black and red colors. There is a figure on the left with a very long neck.

rgd-aesthel

A drawing of u/aesthel from redditgetsdrawn. I liked her goggles on the forehead and interesting makeup (spots near the eyes)

rgd-aprikahan

A drawing of u/aprikahan from redditgetsdrawn. Simple portrait of her looking to the side, nice necklace and suit.

rgd-artboxcreationsinc

A drawing of u/artboxcreationsinc from redditgetsdrawn. This one reminded me of Pepper and Carrot being witch themed. I liked the patterns on her clothing, interesting shaped glasses, witches hat (which most is missing from my portrait) and straw broomstick.

rgd-lullabyformycat

A drawing of u/lullabyformycat from redditgetsdrawn. Cool tattoos on the arms.

rgd-nosebearnosebear

A drawing of u/nosebearnosebear from redditgetsdrawn. Again, tattoos are fun to draw. This time they were on the arm and shoulder.

rgd-ruairi

A drawing of u/ruairi from redditgetsdrawn. Finally a male! This one is interesting because his head is in the stocks and he is pulling peace symbol.

rgd-thespacecase93

A drawing of u/thespacecase93 from redditgetsdrawn. I like the suit and baldness. Reminds me of of Agent from Hitman. Or maybe Lex Fridman if he lost his hair..

rgd-unknown

A drawing of Unknown from redditgetsdrawn. Normally I’m good at writing down the usernames, but missed it on this one! oh well, might go back through history and find / update later. I like the hate and the arm going over the head.

June 2022

Hello and Welcome to artwork of June 2022. This month I did something I have not done in many years - draw from the reddit sketchdaily subreddit. When I use to live in Wellington and attend art school there, I would use the subreddit to pratice my digital drawing. In more recent months I have found it hard to find things to draw, so a prompt helps. Enjoy.
