More Time Lapse Sketches

Just a couple more portraits. I’m experimenting with different camera setups. This time, the camera is on a stand on the desk directly between me and the sketchbook.

Time lapse portrait sketches

Variations on a theme, obviously.

I’m falling behind in the count as far as the sheer number of drawings needed to meet the month’s goal of 50 for NaNoDrawMo, but I am excited about some of the experiments I have done. Pictured here is a drawing done with colored graphite and another done with black and white pastel chalk on a piece of stone.

NaNoDrawMo 2012 underway

9NaNoDrawMo is an annual drawing challenge inspired by National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). If a picture is worth a thousand words, and if 50,000 words is the target word count for a NaNoWriMo novel, then drawing fifty pictures in the month of November is an equivalent task. (Not hardly, in my estimation, but it’s an amusing equation and excuse enough.)

Here are a few of the drawings I’ve made so far.

I’ve been using my homemade paper for some of these.

Fresh Off the Portraits-in-Profile Mill

The less meticulous I try to be, the better I like the results.


Doesn’t mean these are particularly accurate likenesses or meaningful objets d’art.


But I like them, because I think they give you a good chance to see the way I do.

Drawn with a sweet chunky graphite pencil stick thingy.

Pencil Test

This is a test of my emergency portrait drawing system.

The drawing on the right was drawn left handed. (I’m right handed.)

Here is a brief montage of four portrait drawings, recorded at two seconds per frame.

In other arts and crafts news, I made a monster mask out of newspaper and masking tape.
