Hello! It’s been a while (again)! Today I thought I’d share with you a quick sketch inspired by a catchy song I’m sure you’ve heard of. 😛 (I know I’m not the first person to make the dentist observation about this song.)
I’ve been working on a few projects lately and sometimes I get caught up in making everything absolutely perfect. To combat this obsession with perfection, every so often I allow myself to draw a very quick, very scribbly drawing. One which I don’t take seriously at all. One where it’s okay if it’s complete rubbish. One where the objective is to simply finish the picture.
The only rules are: if you mess up, improvise; if you’re not sure, go for it anyway and see what happens; and finally, no matter how many mistakes, finish the picture!
Editing after scanning is kept to a minimum. Skin tones are added in (because I don’t have any appropriate pens to do otherwise), colours adjusted slightly for nicer viewing on a screen, and some pencil marks erased (though I actually missed some!)
I probably still spent longer than I should’ve done… but it was nice not to worry excessively over every detail. Next time I’ll give myself a time limit!
