SPOILER ALERT: today is not that day.
But hey, on the plus side, I’ve got some new art to post!
This is a little watercolor sketch I did during class today. The anatomy’s a little off (she’s got too much leg and too little torso), but overall I really like how this turned out. I’m especially proud of the slight blush on her cheeks, nose, and joints. Seriously, this watercolor stuff is a breath of fresh air. Everything I’m working on is feeling kind of stagnant, so it’s fun to work in a medium that feels spontaneous and is also pretty malleable. I feel like I’m on to something with this kind of character design, too–it’s somewhere halfway in between the simpler style I was using last year (and in earlier ’20s sketches) and the more realistic style I’ve been playing with this year. I also like the idea of not inking over the watercolors, but I don’t know how that’ll end up reproducing so I’ll have to do some experimentation. Does that mean I have to draw more flappers? OH NO WHATEVER SHALL I DO.
(P.S. In case you’re curious, the lyrics are from Guy Lombardo’s “Enjoy Yourself,” which is a great listen if you’re hankering for something a little vintage-y sounding.)
