The backstory: I’m nearly 40 and for some reason I think now is a good time to learn to be an artist. Sketch Pad is a collection of drawings I’ve done throughout the week. My time to draw is usually from 4-5 in the morning or from 9:30 at night until I can’t keep my eyes open anymore and crawl into bed. I have included everything. The good, the bad and the ugly, in order to remind myself that this is a process and it’s not about getting it perfect the first time…or the second….or the third…or… So here is some of the stuff from this week.
I am having fun just doodling characters. I found this Paladin through one of my image searches for RPG characters. I feel terrible because I can’t find the original source I used. I went back and looked for hours to try and find the image so I can add the link, but I couldn’t track it down. If anyone recognizes this character, please give me a heads up in the hopes that I can find the image I used. Needless to say, I am not imaginative enough to think this fella up by myself. I will admit that this is going to be the way I draw beards for now on.
In contrast, this one is an original. Last week I was testing my skills at drawing a hooded figure. I feel as if I have the concept down pretty well and now it’s just up to me to practice and fine tune it when I have time. This week was not the week for that, but I did draw this guy. I was going for a Star Wars feel and I think he can pass as a young Padawan. I’m a huge Star Wars fan, so creating anything that slightly resembles that universe make me giddy.
