Back to my favourite character again for this week’s #OnceFanArtFriday. Rumplestiltskin will forever be featuring in my sketches. Maybe some day I’ll even do a drawing of him that I’m actually happy with.
This one is from a scene in one of the most recent episodes where he was very studiously examining a snow globe. It hasn’t been explained at all what he was doing with and for some reason it peaked my curiosity. I suppose it just seems like a really strange thing to capture his attention. Sadly I didn’t have much of an idea of how to actually do a snow globe with charcoal so it looks a little strange. I also couldn’t get the hand to look at all right on this one.
I actually did quite a lot of doodling today as well. My co-worker and I had another sketch off on our lunch break and I also got another Disney character request from one of my other co-workers.
So I drew Mushu from Mulan for one of my co-workers and coaxed the other one into attempting a life drawing. She claims that she can’t draw anything from life so I was trying to encourage her to practice a bit. I suggested a whole slew of random objects that where lying around and she rejected pretty much all of them before finally agreeing to attempt a glass of water.
Then, unimpressed with the results, she retreated back into some more fantastical doodles. She really does have an amazing imagination. I love watching her draw even though she’s very down on herself about it. She excels at the kind of drawing from imagination that I only just decided to start practicing again because I realized just how out of touch I am with it. It’s very inspiring. When I asked her for a suggestion of something to draw she told me to draw something a little more fantastical. That’s certainly a good suggestion for me. I don’t do nearly enough of that and it really is fun.
