A Day In Our Lives #15

Hey guys,

I found my apple pencil! This week I am including another art piece that took longer to work on. Two of my posts so far have featured dinosaurs because I am extremely interested in them! I created this art piece first by drawing out the perspective lines on paper, and then I took a photo of the drawing on my phone. I sent the image to my iPad and colored it in a monochrome grey palette. I really wanted to focus on perspective and lighting in this drawing. I like how the energy of this drawing turned out.

A little update about campus life, I went to the snowball fight on the Diag with my friends this week! I encourage you all to attend cute events like this because it was a really cool and really made me feel like I was a part of the UofM community.

See you next week!

A Day In Our Lives #14

Hey guys,

This week is a little out of the ordinary, my drawing this week is on paper with colored pencils instead of on my iPad. I lost my apple pencil and I’ve been looking everywhere for it! I saw a squirrel for the first time in like two months so I was inspired to draw this little guy. I gave him a. little Starbucks cup to keep him warm. I liked drawing this week’s post on paper, so I might do something similar in the future. I regularly am a traditional artist and sometimes I feel like I am able to be looser with my drawing. It is hard for my brain to register the Ipad as some form of paper I think!

See you guys next week

A Day In Our Lives #13

Hey guys!

 

This week I thought that I would show a comic that I worked on last semester. I really like incorporating science and science fiction into my work. I like dinosaurs and wanted to pursue a minor in Paleontology but didn’t have room on my schedule. It has a little bit of humor at the end. This comic took roughly half the semester to work on all of the individual panels. I used a mix of colored pencil, Copic markers, pen, and procreate on my iPad in order to get all of the different textures.  It was convenient to be able to use procreate last in order to use it for the final editing and coloring.

 

See you guys next week! 

A Day In Our Lives #12

Hey guys!

This week I wanted to draw what my commute to school normally looks like. I feel like I am always carrying a million things! Art school needs a lot of supplies. I live on central campus and have to commute to north campus to go to school, which means I have to take the bus. It feels awful to have to carry a lot of art supplies or your own artwork for everyone to see. The experience is awful especially when it is an art piece I don’t like or aren’t proud of. Have sympathy for us art kids <3  I hope the start of everyone’s semester is going well! All of my artwork in this blog is done in procreate.

Hey guys!

I’m writing this post new years day! I don’t know about you guys, but I had a crazy year! It was a lot of fun and I did a lot of cool stuff. I’m looking forward to this year and having a great winter semester. I can’t believe it is already 2023! I hope that everyone this year has a great time and we achieve all of our resolutions. Personally, I want to read more books this year. This week I chose to draw cats because cats are my favorite animal. The numbers are Maize and Blue for our school! I liked drawing this because I would really like to get a cat this year. It will have to be after I move out for the summer because there are no pets allowed at the dorms!

See you next week!

A Day In Our Lives #10

Hey guys,
I am currently writing this post on Christmas! There has certainly been a lot of crazy weather this week so far. I drew my mom’s dogs in costumes for the holidays. I draw all of my artwork on this blog with Procreate on the Ipad. I like filling up the canvas with different patterns or little details surrounding the subjects in made-up backgrounds. I am excited to get back to campus for the new semester!

Happy holidays everyone!
