Doodle-A-Day 14/1/16

Archer 3

So I’m two weeks into the new year and so far so good. I’ve managed to keep up with Doodle-A-Day so far, even if I haven’t been posting all the results.

This is today’s attempt. It might look familiar to those of  you who read ‘Fire’ by Kristin Cashore as I used the model on the front of the book to work from for stance and scale. I’m not very happy with the face or the hands, but that would make sense as these are the two biggest weak spots I have in drawing.

I think over the next few days I’m going to focus my doodles on hands to try and improve my technique. They’re tricky at the best of times but I’m not going to get better if I don’t practice.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four 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.

    I have to disagree with you on one point: I think the hands look great. Drawing hands have always been one of my weak points as well, but I think you did very well with them in this drawing. If anything, on her right hand, the fingers could have curled around the bow a bit more, but otherwise I think you did very well.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
