BOOM Headshot. by t-wei BOOM Headshot. by t-wei
Something i've started doing during lectures and slow classes. I originally saw it being done over at :icondesign-a-character: and thought it a pretty rad way of exercising one's shape exploration. After a while I got bored and asked some of my mates to draw shapes in my sketchbook too, hence the random names.

Hope ya digs!

ēTē

TOOLS: Fineliner for the shape, HB mech pencil for the fill.

My friends and I used to do something like this, of course we were quite young and they weren't very good.
I also like your rounded sketch pad, it complements the shapes well!

So were the shapes totally random, or were they drawn with some face shape in mind? Either way they look great!

Totally random. Mostly I got friends to draw them for me to make them more challenging.

Superb. Love this as an exercise. had my art classes give it a go. Most of them a bit too young for it, but will try it out again on the older kids at some point.

That's so cool! I wish I could draw in class like that but, most of the time it would cause me to fall behind in that class :P Not to mention if I got caught, I'd be in trouble with the teacher :( You actually have a friend named Kasumi? Cause one of my main oc's is named Kasumi, anyway, Amazing art, very interesting to look at :)

yeah!! i love doing these.. i also like having people do what i call "squiggles" and turning it into something. just a squiggly crazy line (only rule is the line can't cross itself, or else it becomes a "scribble" which is fine if you're playing scribbles)

Wow, that's a really cool idea. I love that.

When I was little, I used to close my eyes and draw random shapes on my chalk board, and then try to turn them into different pictures. I guess it's kind of the same thing. Haha
