Before I launch into today’s post, I want to remind all my creative friends that by decree of Kirk (Dumb Sketch Daily blog) and me, Sept. 25 is the first Art Selfie Day. Please join in the fun! You can use any medium and put your own take on this however you want. No rules!
Today’s drawing took far, far too much time than I intended to. I blame it all on Tom C. who gave me “Squirrel Girl” in that silly game to populate Facebook with comic book art to combat the negativity there. I couldn’t just pull an image off the internet, could I? Noooo. I had to go draw my own interpretation.
That happens when you don’t use a model and you’re relying on your memory to make a pose (and when you’re not in a proper posture for drawing; slouched in a comfy chair is not proper posture)…plus, I had a scribble at the lower left corner that was not part of the piece.
For those of you who aren’t geeks, yes, Marvel did come up with this character. What were they thinking?
