Attempting To Draw – Again

Headquarters relaunches at the end of October so I thought it might be a good idea if I got my pens and pencil out and had a go at drawing my characters for myself.

This means that I actually have to learn how to draw original figures properly.

So I did what I always do and I bought a book and what you can see below is my attempt to follow their instructions on how to actually draw the human body in certain positions. I changed the hair and the clothing to try and make the figure look more like on of my characters and I went off course in a few places because I couldn’t do it the way it was shown on the page.

Now if I can just get the hand of this tablet thing I might even be able to add some glossy colour to these drawings. I’ll let you know if I manage it. So far now here is the pencil design and the pen outline.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-three year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.
