Few days ago Arlen and I took an elevator to the 16th floor of a “skyscraper” on main square in Zagreb and took some pictures from newly opened Zagreb Eye viewpoint. I am very much afraid of heights so I managed to shoot only half a roll of film before I started breathing heavily and (almost) panicking and had to go back inside. I handed the camera (Minolta XG-M) to Arlen and he finished a roll. Here are some pictures, taken by me and Arlen and he’s the one who shot the video as well.
This is short (and abruptly cut -I forgot to charge my camera battery, oooooops :)) video of me doodling some flowers.
I’m still trying to figure out how to shoot videos of my drawings in progress, trying to use better lighting, thinking at which angle to shoot, how to position my camera, so please bare with me and my ongoing experiments (such as this) till I get it right :)
You can see the finished drawing below, it looks much different than original doodle. I have made an original sketch with Artline 0.1 pen (sent to me by Bob), coloring was done wit uni-ball vision fine tip black pen and watercolors in pencil. The drawing was done on 180gms slightly textured paper and it’s approximately 21×28 cm in size ( I cropped A4 format a bit).
I asked my Mom what would she like me to get her on a Mother’s Day, and she replied “Well, you don’t have to get me anything for the occasion but when you find the time you can paint a fox on a canvas bag for me.” And that’s what I did yesterday.
I even made a little work in progress video ( I forgot to disable the sound so can hear all the wonderful background noises like cars passing by, me zipping my hoodie, and water in the sink and all that twice the speed, hehe). I had so much fun shooting the video, now I’m thinking to do more clips like this, maybe better lit and thought-out more and less improvised.
This how a finished bag looks like:
My Mom really liked it and she’s happy with her new bag!
Video of my mini Moleskine notebook filled with drawings.
I had a lot of fun filling my mini Moleskine notebook with drawings and doodles, I did it in breaks between some more “serious” drawing, painting and running errands. All of the drawings are done from imagination without any pre-sketches or strict ideas of what I’m going to draw. I used a lot of metallic colors, mainly silver and gold and enjoyed combining bight blues, greens and pinks. The colorful the better :)
