I used a fountain pen I have owned for 5 years and never used. It took just a few minutes, but I learned how the nib works from different angles and pressure points. Great fun!
As I began illustrating “Kevin and His YouTube Channel,” I came across this Domestika course. The instructor is Felicie Haymoz, Character Designer and Illustrator. She was the designer for “Fantastic Mr. Fox.” This course is called “Anthropomorphic Character Creation” and I’m excited to learn a lot! I want to make this book a lot better than my last one. Oh, and having tons of fun on the road to the final product is always the objective.
I love Jon Stich’s teaching style and his art so I am super excited to start the exercises in this book. This, despite the fact that he’s big on details (not my forte), mixing colors (my artistic Achilles Heel) and drawing items that take more than an hour (I like quick exercises)! Here’s to learning, getting dissatisfied and frustrated, and persevering.
I realize I have a tendency to put too much water on the brush.
I’m learning and it’s fun. Posting just to hold myself accountable for daily practice.
