So I have a new favourite show that I’ve been obsessing over lately. It started out mostly just as another thing to have playing in the background while I was drawing but slowly I fell more and more in love with it. The character I tried to draw today is most of the reason for that. He is my absolute favourite character and every scene he’s in is absolutely golden. Seriously, I think I’m developing an unhealthy obsession with him.
Sadly I have not managed to capture him at all. I took two shots at it from two very different photos but neither of them quite worked out. It seems like the closer I am to my subject the worse my drawings turn out. Does anyone else find that? I think it’s that I can dissociate myself much more easily from subjects I’m not attached to and break them down into shapes and lines. The more attached I am to a subject the more focused I am on the results. I think I just fret over it more and have a harder time getting it right as a result.
Anyway, given my aforementioned unhealthy levels of adoration for this character I doubt this will be the last time I attempt to draw him. He will probably crop up again at some point. I want to get at least one sketch I like of him. That may require a few more attempts.
