Creating Simple Characters with Nelleke Verhoeff
I want to work on bodies/poses for all the faces I’ve drawn over the years. To develop characters: full bodied, fleshed out characters. I seem to have trouble with that. I don’t know why I do and I thought this class might loosen me up and help get me over the hump as it were…..
Turns out it’s making me tighter and more conscious of the fact that I suck at it! LOL
So…..in typical Robin fashion, I decided to do my own thing albeit with the lessons in the back of my mind. I mean, as my mother used to say, “Why reinvent the wheel?”
So I’m using the bits and bobs from the PDF’s I shared a while ago and mixing it up with collage and ‘finessing’ it digitally.
I FINALLY came up with a few that don’t suck and actually made me laugh. I figure if I laugh or smile it’s not a total loss, right?
It’s a beginning anyway…..
