So I've been in a serious drawing slump. Well, kind of a creative slump in general. Not gonna lie—it happened right around the time everything in my writing ventures went south. Save for a few bright moments, it's been tough getting back into the swing of things. I feel like I've finally gotten to a good place with my writing, but drawing...man. Lack of time and desire has resulted in virtually nothing of note since like August.
Example: I STILL have a poor contest winner waiting for her prize drawing. (So sorry Carrie, I am seriously working on it now and have the lines down. Just coloring. I know I'm lame.)
Anyway, I drew some stuff! Nothing exciting. But I did. I had the pleasure of going to a writing conference this weekend, and I brought my notebook along. I like to draw while listening. It actually helps me pay attention, strangely enough. I hear more. It's hard for me to just sit and listen/watch something. Like movies? I get bored...I have to be doing something while I watch.
So here are the fruits of my conference doodles, save one, since Kasie wanted the one I drew of her MC.
Remember "That Witch Thing" book? Well, it's now called House of Ivy and Sorrow (which would be like HIS shortened...creepily relevant). Yay! A title. I've been brainstorming plot and characters and such, and I like to sketch when I do. Helps me focus on the characters. So this is Jo, the MC with the crazy witch for a grandmother.
And this is just some messing around, but I like how it turned out. Sometimes I can't seem to get expressions like I want. This one worked.
I really need to get back in the habit of drawing, so I'm officially reinstating the Weekend Sketch. If I don't post, you have permission to yell at me. I need some accountability.
