Selection of sketches, an exercise which helps me to improve my visual skills for online visual content.
About the Project: I sketch occasionally as an outlet for self-expression and to improve my visual skills.
- My preferred sketching tools: ballpoint pens, mechanical pencils, and pigment liners.
- This hobby improves my visual skills when it comes to text layout and creating effective social media graphics.
I started sketching when I was 16 years old. I enjoy using mechanical pencils, ballpoint pens, and pigment liners because of their precision.
Sketching continues to be an outlet for self-expression. It is a diligent practice that helps me to improve my visual skills (which comes in handy with social media graphics and website visual design).
This is a selection of sketches I’ve done over the years, mostly from 2003 – 2018.
I intend to do more bird drawings in future as they are my favorite subject.
