So, whilst waiting for the boiler man this afternoon I thought I'd do a little sketch. Which turned into inking up the little sketch. Which then turned into scanning it and tidying it up in Photoshop. And then into colouring it. Adding shadows and highlights. Adding a frame. And a pattern.
OK, well I'm not off to bed just yet seeing as it's only 4.30 in the afternoon (tempting though!) I've had this doodle in my sketchbook for a while now and I thought it was time I spent some time to bring it to life. I'm still not convinced its 100% finished... but it's certainly close to being finished. Is it finished?! It's one of those when you just don't know when to stop! And I think my eyes might have gone square from the time I've spent on my computer today, so I should probably call it a day!
After days of feeling like I've forgotten how to draw and hundreds of pieces of paper being scrunched up and thrown away, I've finally managed to finish a piece that I am happy with! I think my problem was over-thinking things too much, so with some background music on yesterday I was able to just switch my brain off and doodle. Seems to have worked for me this time at least!
