Some Pencil Sketches...

I was at a great seminar for a couple of days, very inspiring and informative. But in between to good parts, there were some slow moments. Some of my colleagues scuplted beautiful things with the Play-Doh (provided by the organizers). I did that but didn't like the oily residue on my hands, so I started doing something I haven't been doing for years - pencil sketching. Amid my colleague's comments of "Gee, you're one disturbed dude" and "What on EARTH is that?", here are some of my favourites (Let me just say I'm NOT very good at this drawing stuff):

We'll start with the typical "Imposing Dark Mountain in Moonlight" (not a good one, I'll admit)

OK, then we've got the "Angel With Sword and Outstretched Wings" (Not related to the Academy Award Ocsar guy)

Then I really got into it. On the right, its a "Brooding Elf Wizard" (NOT Gandalf.) On the left its a hooded elven warrior with scimitar and buckle shield. (They're all hooded coz I can't draw faces!)

Right, I like this next one. It's a dark figure with a guardian watching over him (Note the cross staff. I love drawing that)

Then I got bored. So I had "Fortress Atop Mountains Under Moonlight" (gotta do better...)

This one is "Transforming Angel and Flaming Maltese Cross" (Or some guy with wings.)

"Beast in Cemetery" (The tree is dead; I don't like drawing leaves)

And finally "Warrior on Beast of Burden". I like the halberd. (Can't draw animals too)

Now all my colleagues don't want to sit next to me.

  • zer0 - give chance a bit ler... i only amateur ler... :)

    lazy bones - I keep telling my colleagues, "give me another 2 days of seminar and see what else i draw..."

    ashie - OK, technically in AD&D elfs can't handle sword or shields, only staff and robes, but maybe he's just a short guy in robes!

    jfe 8555 - i say, that one quite difficult ler...

  • Wow, must have been a thrilling seminar to inspire such works of art.
    I don't like to draw leaves either, there's too many...

  • Creative titles indeed. Watch too many movies, I agree.

  • Pretty dark and gruesome stuff. I agree that if I were your colleague, I'd stay far away too!

  • Haha, you are much more disturbed than I thought. Either that, or you have been LOTR too many times on VCD/DVD, hehe.

  • viking054 - don't remember much about the seminar!

    5xmom - i give art 'disturbed art' classes 4 times a week, if you're interested...

    jenn - perhaps they are also uncomfortable with me constantly mumbling "Die, pitiful scum! BWUAHAHA...!"

    lexandria - tomorrow i'll be sketching evil Pokemons...

    pat - the time has come for the Dark Lord Simon to rise and heed the call of his minions...
