You're 100% right. Thanks. I imposed the drawing on the original photo and just cut the drawing and pasted the pieces so that they match the original. Here is the before and after. It shows where the faults are, how his body is too much to the front. Cool.
Hi, everyone! I've been watching videos for a few months and love them! I'm going to finally be brave and post some very early sketches for a picture book project. I'm working with an editor on the manuscript portion and am torn about illustrating it myself.
The story is about Ivy, who is a veterinarian to magical creatures, and her pet pegasus Eddy.
I'm trying to determine which hairstyle I like best for Ivy.
The funny thing is, both those things you mentioned @Joy-Heyer are because of how I dropped the sketches in--the "door jam" you mentioned was actually the edge of the panel in my sketch, but I decided to move it over for a bit more space, but my sketch didn't have that part completed. And I originally had the thought bubble filling the bottom of the second panel, but realized it worked better in the next panel when I was laying out the text, thus the floating head. Thats a good point about the shoulder strap and the hair though, I will have to keep my eye on that as I ink the final.
And that is it for my Inktober drawings! I had a lot of fun doing this and some days were pretty challenging. It was nice to go back to Paper drawings for a while and also draw some things out of my norm. This also makes me wish I had more funds to invest into different types of pens. I mostly have all the same kind just different sizes, plus a water color gray and a white pen. But some of what I seen from other people with more utility in their pen set amazes me and makes me want to keep practicing!
@jon-anderson I like that attitude! But also that’s a grand idea,one I may also use next year. Over all I feel like I did grow as an artist, I became more decisive with my pen andbrush strokes. So even if I’m not thrilled with a few of these I canat least take that with me. Next year I may also bring computed ink in, or use brushes and washes. Time will tell. Thanks so much for following my progress and chiming in here.
I'm really pleased with what I was able to do this month. I created art every single day, I became a lot more comfortable with dip pens and various nibs, I did my first ever ink washes and I illustrated characters that up until now were just in my head. I'm going to keep on working in ink moving forward. I intend for it to be my primary medium.
Great job to everyone who took part in Inktober this year!
This is digital version of my Halloween drawing. I was learning to paint like Will Terry, after watching 'Choosing Colors for Storytelling'... it's not as easy as it looks, when you watch a video tho ;-)
