As you may have seen in my last entry, I’m trying to get back to art.
Last time, I drew Bifur (and I still need to finish him). I used a more relaxed and cartoony style.
This time, I decided to add a little more detail in this sketch. It’s also a bit small, about 6 inches from top to bottom. I hope to enlarge it, transfer it, and work in some more detail and fix things while inking with a brush.
Sadly, the scanner we have isn’t compatible with our computers, so I’m still using photographs to share online. I really need to just get one — it’s so hard to do things like that when there are so many things I should upgrade or get. Isn’t that how it always is, though?
I would like to color it on my iPad or computer, but we’ll see if I’m able to get a scanner sometime in the near future. Regardless, I’m tired of having to rely on photographs to capture the detail.
At some point, I would also like to consider setting up a better way to display my art for sharing. I have a Flickr account, and I love how easy it is to share to places like Twitter and Tumblr (oh yeah — by the way, I’m on Tumblr now). I’m just not sure if I want to put my art on Flickr. I’m considering Deviantart, but I get so tired of signing up for new accounts. Anyone have any suggestions or even reviews of using Deviantart or Flickr to host things like fan art?
Anyway, here is the photograph of my Thorin sketch. I can’t wait to feel more comfortable again, work out my system, and finish the things I’ve started. Regardless, I’m having such fun drawing the dwarves! 🙂
