Yes, it's day two. This sketch was much quicker than yesterday's. I decided that even if I'm not too happy with them, they're going up anyway. For me, sketching, painting, sculpting, writing, I'm not too great the first go round, I tend to vomit something up and hope it looks okay. I usually work several ideas up before I ever get one to the point I'm willing to show someone.
Well, not this month, it's a daily dose of first drafts.
I've lamented about my half written mess of a fantasy novel a lot lately. So, I thought I'd do a few character sketches to see if that helped me any.
This on is for a character named Bit, he's an ass. He's a big, strong, and manipulative. And serves as a minor antagonist to my story's good guys. He'd be a pushover if he didn't have someone smarter, meaner, and more powerful that keeps putting him in positions of power and protecting him from retribution from his actions.
I don't like this sketch... I should have done much better, I think I went too cartoony and I made him look a bit too preeny. I mean, is he checking his nails? Hitching a ride somewhere? Maybe I'll throw out a touch more realism for other characters when I come to them.
