Character Sketch


It's been awhile since I've posted a drawing. Not that I haven't had pictures to post, but I've been doing a lot of notebook sketching and my scanner, I'm pretty sure, is possessed. It can take like an hour to scan a picture, and frankly I've been a little lazy. And busy. But mostly lazy.

So here's a sketch! Isn't she pretty? I won't tell you who this is, as she is part of a brand new WIP that is just for fun. I can't talk about it because then I will take it seriously. Does that happen to you guys? The second I share an idea/WIP, the pressure turns on.

Not happening with this book. It's all for my own enjoyment. I have plenty of other projects to take seriously.

  1. I wish I could draw like you! Then I wouldn't have to surf the web for pictures of people who look kinda, sorta, maybe if he/she got a nose job, like my MC's. You have a terrific talent.

  2. Ooh! This is some awesome, you are very talented :) I'm sort of somewhat doing a similar thing with YouTube videos. Check out my character sketch vlog, Dear Muse.

  4. Beautiful picture :)

    I have a tendency to keep things to myself at first too, although I'm not sure if it's a way to keep them less-serious or if I just don't care to talk about them yet :P

    Have fun with her! ^_^

  7. Maybe I should try that: not talking about something to ensure it stays "for fun."

    I love the splashes of blue.

  14. Love her hair!

    And yes, as soon as you tell people about a story, it's no longer just for you, and it takes on a different... pressure isn't the right word, but significance, maybe. Import.

    Hold it close to your chest for as long as you need. :)
