Sketchy Sundays: The Official Beginning

Yaya! Another new blog series. Woo! I'm an art student and pretty much spend most of my time drawing. But I recently realised that I don't really share that side of me that much here on the blog and thought that this should change. Okay, so I'm no Picasso but it's what I love to do and over time I'm sure I'll improve.

A not-all-that-interesting fact for you here, I wrote this post last Sunday and absolutely hated it so decided not to post it. I realised I had rambled far too much and a lot of what I wrote didn't make any sense. Even the painting I did of Jameela Jamil wasn't work I was proud of (although I have warmed to it since). So I have ditched the paints and mass writing and I'm keeping it simple.

This week I've done a pencil drawing of Ashton Irwin. If you don't know who he is, have you been living under a rock this year? Ashton is the drummer of the Australian band 5 Seconds of Summer. I love his crazy curly hair (it's far better than mine!) but it's what caused me most frustration with this drawing. The photo that this image is based upon was taken in quite dark lighting and it was hard to distinguish the hair from the hat (obsessed with the hat by the way) so I've had to get a little creative hair wise. Other than that I hope he's recognisable. 

Let me know what you think in the comments. Any suggestions for next week are welcome.
