I decided to start learning how to ink stuff in Illustrator. This is a start. I need to get better. I don't know all the tips and tricks. In fact I'm sure I am doing it the hard way. I still had fun tho.... Keep Rockin!
So I drew the first face that came to mind and it looked like this:
So then I got the idea of how funny it would be if this guy was trying to whistle? I was reading this Gesture Drawing for Animation book, by Walt Stanchfield, and he said to make every drawing have emotion and movement. In other words make it feel alive. So I decided to try to put this dude in a pose:
After I did this I felt like it flowed but didn't really have anything unique about it, I felt like my shapes weren't anything special. So then I did this:
This one felt really stiff so I decided to make really great shapes and flow:
After showing my friend Allen he reminded me that I had lost my original gesture! so I just learned that I need to just draw it right the first time! haha..... not gonna happen. Anyway, I came out with this last one. I feel much better about it. I feel like I didn't compromise shape but I got much better gesture. So I learned that keeping my drawing alive involves having nice shapes but also NEEDS GESTURE! Anyway, cheers duders
