So to keep myself together, i bought myself 2 new sketchbooks. One that has all my design concepts for specific projects, and another for just...anything i decide i want to do. My most recent sketch is this gargoyle i saw in a magazine. It was interesting, and it was painted all white. I could hardly make out the details. So i challenged myself to make this photo of a gargoyle come alive through my sketch, but i had to do it in 5 minutes or less. No fine-tuning allowed. And this is how it turned out.
At first, i found the drawing to be really creepy since i am not one to draw monsters and grotesque looking creatures. But after i read somewhere that gargoyles are actually believed to chase away evil spirits, i decided that it was all about perspective. Now I'm actually kinda happy with the turn out, and i'm happy i got to release all my tensions for the past hour by pouring my energies into this one project. I'm feeling a little more recharged and possibly more open to starting a new job.
I guess this gothic guardian did it's job well.
I plan to do this more often so stay tuned to my next sketch projects. :)
