I’ve been practicing my sketches again, and I just can’t seem to keep away from my favorite Disney film.
I had to put some scribbly flames over her claws, because I can’t draw claws apparently. I suppose I should do a practice study where I just draw claws, hands and feet. I definitely need to get better at those aspects. I’m also trying to practice the freedom with which I sketch- I tend to try to make things a little too true to life, rather than keeping it a simplistic sketch. I think sketching either way is fine and good practice, but I’ve really been trying to work on the spontaneity of each piece. It’s tough because I don’t trust myself, and I usually will sketch an outline before I sketch with the paint. I can erase pencil and try to fix my mistakes, but working only with paint may help me find the virtues in the mistakes I make and help me use them rather than erase and redo them.
We’ll see how I do through my next few. Maybe I’ll even move on to a different Disney movie. 🙂
