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.
