While in a line-up at TCAF this weekend I got to meet a father and son that were waiting to have a book
signed by Svetlana Chmakova. I felt so lucky to be in line next to
them. They were so genuine and nice and we soon got into conversations
about books and movies.
When I mentioned that I had the pleasure
of working on “The Little Prince”, they told me how much they loved it.
The son’s face especially light up so much and I can’t truly describe
the joy at seeing something that I was a part of touch someone so
genuinely. Meeting them was something really special that has had me
smiling for days. As a thank you, I sent them this drawing.
I wasn’t really happy with the last drawing that I posted, so I thought
I’d take another crack at it and push the design a bit further. This is a
really ruff pass and the pose is a bit static, but I already like the
feel of it so much more.
I’ve been wanting to draw characters from a book for a while, but
haven’t had the time until last weekend. I was listening to the Twilight
series and was struck by how well the secondary characters were
described . Especially fascinating was that each character died in a
different time period which could influence their design subtly. The
experience was so much fun that it makes me want to do “The Name of the
Wind” next, or maybe “The Power of One”. Let’s see where my fancy will
take me the next time :)
I wanted to do drawings for inktober, but don't really have any inks with me at the moment. So even though this was done digitally it was done in the spirit of inktober :)
I found a list of inspirations of what to draw and one of the subjects matters was "Manga". So the following drawing is inspired by Rumiko Takahashi's Ranma 1/2. The whole cast of Ranma ½ is so funny and brilliant and makes me laugh so much!
This drawing is Ranma trying to do Akane’s hair before school. As you can see she’s going to end up with a beautiful hairstyle! ^^
I’m not really sure if this is very successful, but I tried to do a somewhat abstract/impressionistic painting of
If I have time, I would love to do more drawings of her and the other “ The Force awakens” cast. I’m so excited for the next movie. But the waiting is so hard xD!
