However, I do enjoy drawing and sketching. And since my subject matter happened to relate to this blog, I thought all of you (or hopefully, at least some of you!) would be interested in seeing my latest project. :)
So as you (hopefully) can tell, this is a rough sketch of Belle and the Prince shortly after his transformation. In this picture, I haven't erased any of the fine lines or anything. Sorry, I know you probably can't see any of the fine lines anyway. :}
After I finished the sketch, I compared it closely to the original and realized that I'd made the back of Belle's head too small. So...
...I went back and fixed it. :)
Here is the final product, with the fine lines erased and some shading applied. It really looks a lot better when the original isn't right next to it. :)
Here's a close-up of the Prince...
...and a close-up of Belle.
For those of you who are curious:
1. Yes, I did this all by myself.
2. No, I did not trace it.
3. Yes, I did look at the original picture and copy it (I do much better doing it that way than trying to draw from memory).
4. No, I do not want to be a Disney animator. I lack the patience and would have trouble keeping duplicate drawings consistent with one another.
5. Yes, I know the proportions are really different from the original picture. Like I said, I'm not a professional. I just enjoy drawing. :)
I was kind of thinking of using this as a blog giveaway prize sometime down the road. Any thoughts on that? Would you rather have a full-color picture? Would you rather not have a picture at all? Are you just saying you want one so you don't hurt my feelings? :) Please be honest. It will not offend me at all. I was trying to come up with something to use for a giveaway for my 150th post (and I still have some time...don't worry).
Also, one more thing that I hate even having to say, but I would like to bring up since these things do happen. Please do not use my artwork or my other pictures without asking me first (with the exception of my blog buttons, of course). :) I work hard to take my pictures and draw my drawings. If you're interested in posting something of mine on your blog or anywhere else, please have the courtesy to ask first. :) I'm usually a pretty agreeable person and would most likely even be willing to give my permission. ;)
Anywhoo, I'd love to get your feedback on my attempt at artwork. :) Talk to you again soon!
