Repeat Client for tomorrow's Event ~ Hey! That's today already.
I wanted to get some sleep, so I was just going to do a quick linework Caricature with this Event in mind, but..... this is what happens.
The Event is for drawing the Guests as Mermen and Mermaids. For a Beer Company. Not sure, but I think they will be providing the background bodies/scenes this time (they're providing the paper). But just in case, I felt like it wouldn't be a big deal to draw my own while practicing with a random face I found online. But messing around, not Really Doing it, just a waste of time. I finally had to focus.
And it is good that I do Something before an event. Honing my approach now, I'll do better and feel more confident when I'm actually At the Event. First, my Sizing was way wrong. Better now, but I still want to play around with sizes a little more. Then I had trouble turning my front-view body. I really must Look at sideview bodies to figure out how to turn a front-post that I might like. Then, well..... I couldn't get away with 'I'm not really going to give effort to the drawing because it's time to get some sleep' idea. If I want to draw a Caricature, I really have to Do it. The 3rd pass is finally usable. Now I know how to do it.
I'm baaaack. Woke up and I'm able to draw Caricatures again. I attached a small paper to last night's _________________. And as I predicted, I'm super ready to handle tonight's #Event. Only forgot the 'crown' ~ easy ~ but just fussing and complicating my Zone. I can do it when that's what I'm hired for, but I'm supposed to be a CARICATURE Artist. Based on what I actually See.
