WARM UP_HARRY POTTER
Ok, so I'm going to try and do warm up drawing each day. And I'll post up most of them. At the end of the year, if I keep it up, i'll have a ton for the next years sketchbook. I'm not going to give myself any rules. Some might be inked, some might be markered up, some might be rendered wtih pencil (if i can get better at it). I do want to keep each drawing to an hour, to an hour and a half.
Todays is Harry Potter. I love these books, and I'm listening to "The Order of the Phoenix" for the next few days. I've started it a few times, but have started from the begining again today. I want to get thru this one so I can listen to the "Half Blood Prince" I've heard that one is sick.
I'm ok with this one. It's not blowing me away. After finishing, I realize I didn't put much thought into it. Just Harry standing there for no reason, holding is wand up for no reason. There really is no point to this piece. That is something i will have to keep in mind each day. I want to pu characters in a situation, and make sure the props make sense. That's the lesson today...think a little more. Make the sketch have a point. SLOW THE FUCK DOWN...I should tell myself that more. We'll try to beat this one tommorrow.
