Asaph Timby 2: Drawings and Sketch

Yesterday I posted a profile drawing of the character from a novel I have yet to write, Asaph Timby. Since I couldn’t shake the need to draw again, (not complaining) I have spent the better part of 4 hours doing just that.

As far as artistic expression goes, the front facing image of Asaph is quite nice, BUT too handsome for the character I am seeing in my head. Yes, the front facing image is with his head slightly (and I mean slightly) tilted forward, whereas his profile is slightly angled upward. I have to say I am pleased with both, but as far as the character goes the one in the Pink is more Asaph Timby than the one in blue.

So…I made the one in blue scowl a bit…

…I mean being creative is all about taking chances even when we can’t undo what we have done…Its all good though. And STILL the PINK ASAPH wins as the closest image to the character.

Here is how the front view drawing all began.

In the end I feel full. I am also relieved that I have jpeg images of all the drawings so I am not out of one image.

    1. πŸ˜€ thank you so very much! Its been a long time since I did a drawing more based from imagination than reality. So it felt really good doing these. If I could give you some drawing tips they would be (this applies more if you are drawing from life) To pay attention to shadows and the shapes they create on the face. If you focus on contours of light and dark that will help with proportions. Also, if you are drawing from imagination you have a bit more freedom but using reference pieces with a good amount of shadow will help too. πŸ™‚

      1. That’s great advice, I never thought to use shadows to help with the facial contours. I have something new to try now, thank you! πŸ™‚

      2. You are welcome. πŸ™‚ Actually that works with anything that you choose to draw. Think of the object as what it is; a series of dark and light shapes. You pay attention to the shape itself and from there you draw things as they are.
