Finally got premium membership again - yay! It makes me very happy to support this awesome service.
I've been doing a lot of drawing recently, though still not as much as I should. Very much inspired by Warm Bodies which has been lovely. Been writing about it, drawing specific scenes from the movie that strike me. Have many more I would like to do. It's definitely a world I enjoy visiting.
I've been experimenting with sequential art, but very roughly, usually just before I go to bed. I have so much to learn about drawing people. It's strange, but when I'm truly inspired, things just flow and I'm able to do something that looks like a person (the uncharted pics, superman, and off the cuff R are good examples). But if I'm trying to plot something out I have the hardest time getting the body right. I can draw an incredible face, I can draw from life like a photocopier (when I take my time), but I have yet to find a good shorthand for sketching out a pose, that's led by the position of the head.
I've always been fascinated by something John Howe wrote once about his drawing style. That he basically scribbled until something came out of the page, that he scribbled until the form became true and something emerged. I feel like I do that sometimes, when I'm inspired, and riding the emotion of a scene. But if I get too concerned, get too technical, worry and fuss, things turn into disconnected pieces and fall flat.
Guess that's true for many artists, and maybe for life in general.
