Drawing #12 - E-WALKING INDIANA - Attempt 1. Fail.
This did not turn out AT ALL like I wanted. I kind of killed it.
Looking back at the original sketch/doodle, I lost everything I had liked. The doodle had problems, but at least it was closer to how I saw it in my head.
This just looks stiff. Flat.
It reminds me of when when I was a kid and I would get a coloring book from a cartoon liked (like He-Man), and everything looked wonky and soul-less.
I'm gonna try this again though. I think I know what I did wrong.
And Sorry Indiana, I will try and capture your awesome-ness, without making you look like you've been taxidermied into a pose.
What I learned from this:
Maybe I should try to figure out my perspective first. Arlyn pointed out that Indiana wasn't walking right, so I had to fix (thus all the erasing). when you can't answer "Where's the horizon line?", You're doing it wrong.
I don't know how do draw fur. Especially in a somewhat Cartoony drawing.
I also don't know what style I'm going for.
This is all very frustrating.
