dajwxp: Sketches from the Live Range.
« on: June 06, 2016, 04:46:42 AM »


eh, might as well.



Sketches from the Live Range.
believe it or not, that is actually not a figure of speech.


Okay, to be fair, I don't always draw in the live range. Most of the time I do it in our barracks.
Still, sitting on some bench in the great outdoors with a clipboard, sketchbook and a mechanical pencil has become a thing.
The clay-mores exploding behind make it much more conducive.




introduction!

So, being a Singaporean means that I need to serve my country in the military for two years. Oh well.

Disclosing the details of my service would be utterly idiotic, but basically, when I'm not training, I'm drawing, writing, or transcribing music. When you go out into the wilderness (live ranges included, haha), you can't bring your music devices along, so I'm left with writing and drawing. Writing is cool until it gets boring, so this is what I spend the other half of my time on. Yeah.

I'm not a trained artist - heck, I'm far from a trained artist. And being limited to mechanical pencil and paper for so long (the Economics lectures have trained me well), it's become the only medium that I'm kinda comfortable with. But I do want to do my own art for my arrangements (youtube videos need art for awesomeness), so this thread is a pretty sweet dumping ground...because, you know, I might as well :p

Basically, mechanical pencil sketches! Amateur art. Much cheers to all~



cool (and free) stuff!~

 
Buttons!

   
Difficulty Meter!

   
Instrumentation Buttons!



note: the six digit number is the date in DDMMYY format, and the four digit number is the time in 24-hr format. military style! just to add to the effect.

Basically, I try to copy the original as accurately as possible (some people even use tracing paper for this, therefore the name) so I get all the details.
Did a Glaceon too, but for some reason I didn't capture it on photo. Oh well.

Oh I just want to mention that tracing paper is used to transfer your own freehand drawing onto a different paper.
For example, you drew something on notebook paper, trace it onto tracing paper, then trace that onto a nicer more expensive piece of paper.

Buttons!

   
Difficulty Meter!

Not exactly a sketch or anything close, but I had some time to do buttons and that was what I did. Yep.

Feel free to use these if you want! ^^ No point in hogging them for myself, haha.

Going with the whole black-and-white, handwritten theme. Could extrapolate on the hidden meaning behind it, but bleh~
