Black and White Drawings

Because when I was younger, I was trying to see if I could come up with decent drawings, I had a sketchpad in which just drew what I could. I like drawing flowers in vases, as well as other inanimate objects. In this post, I'm sharing with you my black-and-white drawings a.k.a my experimenting with pencil shadings and shadows.I just edited them a bit in Photoshop because the shots were dark. Here they are:

(I used the Faber Castell triangular pencil in this one. I no longer have it, and I think the book stores and supplies stores don't have it as well. I made this sometime in 2001.)

(This is my favorite in this category. I was trying to create a shadow of the vase. I hope the black thing under the vase looks like one. By the way, the white line in the "shadow" isn't there in the real drawing. I wonder where that came from. I drew this on October 9, 2001, my 13th birthday.)

(Little Feast 1. This is my second favorite in this category. I drew this on October 12, 2001.)

(Little Feast 2. Drawn on October 13, 2001. No wonder this is similar to the previous one. I drew them on two consecutive days.)

(Fruit Basket. Drawn on January 4, 2002. I don't know what fruits they are actually. I just drew round "fruits". But one of them is an apple. :) )

(By Threes. My inspiration for this one came from a small vase with three fake roses in it displayed in the bathroom. I drew this on April 1, 2002.)

(What flower is that? I don't know. On April 29, 2002, I just drew random dots on the top part of the paper, then connected them and tried to make something out of it. I'd like to believe the drawing isn't that bad, is it?)

(Bouquet of Buds. I drew this on April 28, 2002. My inspiration for this was a bunch of fake flowers I saw in the house. I think it was a school project of mine.)

So there they are. My artworks. I plan on drawing again soon. I just hope I can come up with decent ones since it's been years since I last drew. Wish me luck. :)

P.S. I would like to thank Lisa for these awards:

Now, I'm passing them on to Jingle and my dear friend, Gia. Congratulations!
