First Things First

boots

My Nana always used to say, “First Things First”. I should have listened to her. I started drawing my new boots a few days ago on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet but I didn’t do any preliminary sketches first to work out how the boots related to each other, the difference in perspective and angles. And now I’m stuck because the boot on the left of the digital drawing just doesn’t look right. So I started sketching them in my little paper sketchbook – and I still can’t get it right. So I’ll have to carry on until it works out.

Here’s what I’ve done so far. I think one of the problems is that Doctor Marten’s have soles that turn up quite sharply at the front and I’, having lots of trouble getting that angle right.

Blocking In

Blocking In. I’m carrying on with my digital drawing of my new willow pattern Doctor Marten boots, blocking in the second one. It’s not as easy as the other as I have to draw everything in relation to the first and it’s tricky. It’s taken me much further with the digital drawing app (Markers) than I’ve done before. The first two stages are below.

I carried on with the digital drawing I started last week, of my lovely new Doctor Marten boots, decorated with a blue and white willow pattern. They are a gift from a dear friend and I’m chuffed to bits with them. I drew on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 using a free Markers app. It’s getting old now, practically an antique, but it’s still fit for purpose so I won’t be changing it any time soon.

This is where I left off last time

 

New Blue Boots (Work In Progress)

A dear friend gave me a pair of blue and white Doctor Martens boots. They’re fab. They are covered with a blue willow pattern, like the one on pottery. I’ve been a bit sluggish creatively lately so I thought I’d get a bit of still-life drawing in, so I plonked them on top of my plans chest, loaded up my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet with a free Markers app and got stuck in. Then I got distracted by the cat. So I’ll work on them again tomorrow.
