Art It Up! - Magazine Sketch

Art It Up! is a weekly feature hosted by Tabitha @ Not Yet Read.

I haven't been feeling very artsy this week, so I decided to attempt a classic art exercise: look at a picture and try to copy it.

I haven't done this with a photo of a real person in forever, but it turned out better than I hoped. Minus the off proportions and everything. Close enough. :)

Thanks for stopping by, and check back tomorrow for this week's discussion post! In which I talk about travel. :)


  1. I think it looks pretty darn good. I keep telling myself I need to try drawing more males. I should try this using magazines to turn then into doodles, I'm always running out of body poses.

    1. Thank you! This one was based off a female model with short hair, though the lack of shape to the shirt combined with the shortened torso does make it look wider and more masculine. Magazines are great references! Maybe next time I'll take a sharpie to it to figure out the basic shapes first. :)

  2. That looks pretty good to me! Mine would look similar to this: :)-/-<
