Well I’m excited to announce that I am in fact drawing again. I am so excited too! I finally told myself to print off one picture and do it. I figured I won’t start on my big project until later because I still have pictures I need find. In all I want to do I got 15 people on my list. It seems like a lot. It is a lot. I’m not used to doing that amount, but I know I can do it with some strength and patience with others. I also have to be patient with myself too. Even though, I’m not the most patient person in the world I have to be patient with certain things. I have to remember what I learned in art in school. Shadows and shades of the pencil. I’m not using charcoal on any of these because I don’t know where to get them. I have to use a regular pencil instead of what I normally use. And most importantly go slow. Haha! That probably won’t happen.
You know how when you see something whether on TV or in a magazine or book, and you think oh, that’s cool! Yeah, in my mind whenever I find something “cool” to draw. It usually is somebody in the music industry. I have not drawn anyone in movies or TV yet. I also haven’t drawn anybody that’s a female either. I know, and I’m all for girl power and I still haven’t drawn Christina Aguilera yet?!?! What’s wrong with me, right? Well, it’s kind of easier for me to draw men, because most of the time they’re less detailed. I’ll probably regret saying this out loud later. Mark my words, I probably will. Because later on I will be drawing Slash. I’m so screwed! Anyways, the picture I have is in black and white. All my pictures will be that way, one is because we don’t have color ink and I’m just use to black and white from school.
I found this picture by a music video I have been watching for the past two weeks. I’ve watched the music video about 100 times now. The guy I’m drawing is very easily to point out and I love the looks he gives the camera so I fell head first and went looking for these looks on Google and Bing. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find them at all. The last place where I thought it would be was Twitter. I went looking for the guys in the band, and the last one I couldn’t find and when I did finally find him, he had the look he gave the camera in the music video as his default picture. I was so happy! Now it was time to find the other members pictures which was interesting. I had to go on Tumblr for theirs. The band has five members and if I don’t like how this one turns out I’m not moving on to the next one or next band. I’m going to make these look good whether it takes 400 times to do it. It will look good.
