Psittacosaurus neimongoliensis Part Two
Well, I've got a couple of tips for myself when I start again tomorrow.
One -- less fretting about how you can't draw and more drawing.
Two -- start playing music as soon as you sit down. Drawing isn't writing -- it likes music.
The missus gave me her old iPod and a dock for it so I can put it on shuffle and hear everything from Fats Waller to AC/DC to the Nuggets collections, the Ernie Kovacs theme, Boiled In Lead, Japanese klezmer ska, Billie Joe Shaver, Roxie Music, Rockpile, and so on... What can I say? I like to be surprised. I need to change it out, though.
Anyway, tomorrow I need to trace over this to isolate specific areas of color, then take it into Illustrator... Hoo, boy. I'm really feeling my lack of practice. Which is good -- this is the start of getting back into shape.
