Beardus Maximus fan art, day 38

Bob Weiner as a gunslinging sheriff.

Beardus Maximus fan art, day 38

This drawing is made to support the sale of the collected trade comic book of PC Weenies, a webcomic by Krishna Sadasivam for Geeks and people who can tolerate them.

Krishna grows a beard in response to a challenge from his fellow comics creators, while he doesn’t like a beard. Read more about it, and how you can support the artist in this post on his blog. For each copy of the trade comic book “Rebootus Maximus” sold through the website Krishna won’t shave for a day. Let him look like a hobo and freak out his wife, who is on family visit for a few months in India.

That is all.


Drawing Unknown Faces, part 124

5 May

I used zFlick to search Flickr for the term “badman” (as opposed to “batman”). One of the pictures that came up was interesting enough for me to draw.

Drawing Unknown Faces, part 124

As it was the first drawing of today, I approached it as a drawing exercise. I drew the outline of the man first and then added the features of the face. This is probably the wrong way to approach a sketch, because there is a sure chance you will not get the proportions of the face right. On the other hand, it forces you to get better at this early stage of sketching. How often I had to correct the width of the face in the sketch, I don’t know, but it is a lot of times.

So, without a good chance of getting it right, you are forced to use what you have and try to make the best of it, without getting frustrated. Remember how frustrated you got when your drawing didn’t resemble the original? This is something you should get through, because it is just that, a feeling. It is still a drawing, even if it doesn’t have enough resemblance in your opinion. Just finish the drawing and learn from it.

Frustration should never prevent you from finishing your drawing. It really never should.

That is all.
