So about a week ago, I got an idea for an animation I may storyboard out soon. It involves a vampire. So I went back to one of my old OCs, as she would fit the bill quite nicely…and laughed. Man was I stupid teenager when I drew her.
So I spent a couple days re-designing the mess I had drawn back then, and here is what I came up with.
Another day, another life drawing. I did try something a little different from my other life drawings yesterday though…I shaded them to match what the coffee shop lighting was (DUN DUN DUNN)
When I arrived, I had the idea of shading the pieces for a different effect, but when I dug in my pencil case, I found a pencil shaped piece of laminated graphite that I didn’t remember having. I shrugged and used it. Was nice to use a softer pencil to be honest, as I typically only carry a HB mechanical pencil, a 2B regular pencil, or a ball-point pen. When I take my pencil case, I have coloured pencils and many other things, like artist pens and…these other things I forget about ;)
I started this piece last week, but after getting caught up in my 3D ventures, I only just got time to finish it.
The inspiration was actually to do with a train of thought I had over the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique at WDW. It used to be a place a girl (or even boy if they wanted) could go and get a make-over to be re-fashioned into their favourite princess. Before a few years ago, it didn’t matter on the age the person was, but now it’s from 3-12 year olds.
This picture is basically a response to my train of thought. It doesn’t matter if you can’t go and get a makeover at the boutique, if you want to be a princess, you can continue to believe.
And no, I sadly never got the chance to experience the transformation. Though I first went to WDW when I was 9, I didn’t find out about the boutique until 2008, when I was 17 and my sister did a summer job in WDW. A bit late haha.
But even without, I can continue to use my own imagination to fuel the fantasy such a place would only help aide.
Yes, I still have to mess with this stuff. *Le sigh*. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy it all, but something always goes wrong, especially since this was all in blender which I have way less experience with! :P
