I really am beginning to run out of ideas of things to draw. I’m going to have to either make a big list and pick a new item on the list every day or start just drawing doodles and scribbles and let go of my expectations as to what the results might look like. For today though I managed to find another random household item to draw.
This is a sketch of a wooden boat that I made in shop class as a child. Somehow it has survived all of these years. It’s moved from country to country, continent to continent, following me through life and is still with me up to this point. I seem to remember not getting a very good mark on it and being lectured on the craftsmanship. I still think it’s not too shabby though considering I can’t have been older than about 8 when I made it. It’s still in one piece anyway.
The sketch is not the most accurate representation but all in all I think it turned out okay, albeit very basic. I really need to start scaling things out before I draw them. With this one I started on the back of the boat and then realized a little too late that the prow wasn’t going to fit on the page anymore. I ended up squishing it a bit to try to get at least a little of it in. As a result the proportions turned out a little wonky. The actual boat itself is a bit more sensible looking. In the end though, it doesn’t matter too much. This is just a drawing of a handmade representation of an imaginary object. I suppose accuracy doesn’t really enter into it at all.
