Des loves Horton so I drew him for his birthday cake topper. This is exciting for me because a month ago there is no way I could have free hand copied anything, even a cartoon elephant. My hands are obeying me better very day. I guess what they say about practice is true.
I needed a little fresh inspiration and motivation to stretch myself and try to draw new things. So I found a daily drawing challenge. Of course it starts with a “selfie”. I feel like a drawn selfie is even more narcissistic than and photo one. But who am I to deviate from the challenge? I also discovered that my webcam has a timer! Which is awesome because I can capture the pose I am looking for. I kept having a hard time with pictures pulled from the internet because it seemed like most of the time parts of the body are cut off, which really doesn’t work well when trying to draw the whole human figure. So here are my Selfie Sketches.
I was inspired by my earlier Chesterton sketch. Here’s to you, Mr. Lewis. I adore you but you are a bit difficult to draw.
Next up, C.F.W. Walther? That theologian is just begging to be drawn.
