I spend a lot of time staring at my sketchbook, not sure of what to draw. Part of it is fear, fear of what horrible wonk-faces, or nonsensical, perspective atrocities will hit the page.
The other part is not knowing what to actually sketch - so I put it to Facebook!
I posted the following as my status:
Ellery TableSaw VanDooyeweert Needs suggestions of awesome things to attempt to draw! I'm trying to develop a skill.
And here are the replies!
Tyler Hoolaeff - SKULLS!!!
Meeka Stuart Daigle - a monkey in a cosby sweater learning to moonwalk from Ronald Reagan.
Jenn Slingshot Brisson - life draw my tarantula!
Jenn Taylor - Fox!
Samanta Palomino - draw nipples on ur butt! (not going to happen)
Leslie Bear Jones - nudes of the late John Candy (um?)
Jayson Thiessen - mohammad (Nah... I like my head on my shoulders)
Teeny Bopper - ROCK BAND!... that is getting booooed at because they arent very good!
Arlyn Bantog - Unicorn Vs Manatee, Jawa Vs Orko, Ewok walking a Shih-Tzu
Robin Badr - Draw the silhouette of a blotchy butterfly. (What?...)
After reading them, and considering, I will definitely be doing the following:
1. Jawa Vs Orko
2. Ewok walking a Shih-Tzu
3. Unicorn Vs Manatee
4. Cosby Sweater Monkey with Reagan
5. Skulls (plan on lots - I like skulls)
MAYBE I'll try life drawing that tarantula, but as it stands... that thing scares the fuck out of me.
So stay tuned... I'm done my writing deadlines, so I have time to draw, or attempt to draw.
And yes, I know it could look like I'm fishing for compliments, but really, I'm terrible, and you'll see soon enough. heh.
