It was always only going to be a matter of time, once I started this sketching malarkey, before I drew Harry. I confess I was a little scared. It seemed a big challenge. There were, of course, the eyes to get right, which I tackled first, figuring that if I got them wrong I wouldn’t have wasted time on the other bits.
But the eyes were the least of my troubles. Even harder to get to grips with was the nose and the blond hairs around it. And harder than that was drawing the fur.
All in all I’m pretty pleased with my first attempt – given I only started drawing 4 months ago, but there’s certainly things I need to work on:
- The nose needs better texture.
- The hairs underneath the nose are way too thick – although this was down to not having the right equipment.
- The fur on Harry’s ear is just wrong.
- The position of Harry’s left ear (the one on our right) is plain wrong too.
So the plan is to work firstly on ears – I think the challenge is that the fur on his ears is actually more hair than fur. From there I’ll tackle the nose and the white hairs under it.
As always any constructive advice from you guys will be greatly appreciated.
Until next time,
