Also did a bit of work on a rope and more additions to the texture of the aft mast.

The ship Batavia, an ink drawing(WiP)

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Started this drawing about a week ago.
I visited this  full size replica ship in Lelystad  this summer and made a few sketches there.
Set up the main lines of the drawing in pencil, then got to work with pen and ink. Lots of details, it is going to be fun hopefully.

The Batavia itself is quite ornamented, I’m going to leave some things out.
The replica of the Batavia is an  artwork by Willem Vos.
I myself are not convinced by some of the details. So my drawing is going to be different from the replica ship.
I will also leave out some of the rigging to make the drawing itself better.
Otherwise it going to be a very cluttered picture:(

The size of this drawing  is about 32×45 cm

Progress pictures dog

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

I worked on this drawing  for quite a while now.
But only a few minutes every time, carefully placing ink marks can be quite tiresome. A wrong line of Ink is very hard to take back..

But as you can see in the last picture it is almost done.

The eyes and tongue have still to be done. and some of the hair has to be darkened still a bit.

Well see for yourself:P

Soft Pastel drawing of a nude (WiP) update

Monday, December 21st, 2009

updated drawing Sitting NudeContinued with this pastel today.
Did some work on the face.
I signed it also.
This being my first soft pastel, I can say I’m satisfied with this drawing.
Her eyes being the weak point.
Maybe I tried to go into to much detail with not enough space to do it:)
Those soft pastels are quite big in comparison to the thing you are drawing. 8mm is the diameter of the pastel, the nearest eye is only 3 in height.
I will correct the eyes as soon as I have a solution for this, but for now this is as far as I can go:)

I forgot to state the size of the drawing, it is about 20×27 centimeter(8x11inches)

Comments and solutions(especially on the eyes) are welcome
