Day 8: Favorite Animated Character
I could have drawn any number of characters today. From Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, to just about any Disney cartoon character, I can draw it. I have a unique ability to look at an image and draw it. I can’t follow tutorials. The “How to draw XYZ” just doesn’t work for me. I can’t see the steps it takes to draw a character. I just see the finished product.
I’ve always drawn the entire image at once. I start from a random point, most likely the easiest section to draw, and work from there. I erase… A lot! I always try to give my images a polished look.
Today’s character is Dopey. You know, the only hairless dwarf in Disney’s butchery of a telling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs? That Dopey. He reminds me a lot of myself. He’s a bit of comic relief, a bit sensitivity and if he ever opened his mouth, I’m sure he’d get a silver medal in the “foot in mouth” competition. He’s lovable, friendly, and dependable.
