I Heart Drawing Bolt
Lately, oh over the past month or so I've been very interested in the movie Bolt. I've watched it 4 times. Much better in 3D, but I still have a place in my heart for 2D animation.
Bolt's taken such an indelible place in my heart that I've wanted to know more about him. Hence, I started drawing him quite extensively as of a month ago. I've made some great progress. But still, I need to reference the screenshots and coloring books I have been using. When I draw him out of my mind, which I can do with some effort, they do not turn out right. Looks like I just have to ingrain his form into my mind.
Here's a couple of my latest freehand drawings. They took 15 and 22 minutes respectively. That's not really good by any means, but it's much farther along than when I started, and I've only been doing this a month. I don't know how certain artists can draw and shade in 30 seconds what takes me 15 mins to do, but hey, looks like a decent goal.
