Character Art – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

9 Comments

I’ve always liked art. I love to go to museums and  see all the different paintings. I especially love the old art from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Michaelangelo, Raphael, Da Vinci, Monet, Manet, Rembrandt, etc.are some of my favorite artists.  Art History class was one of my favorite college classes. But when it came to actually drawing and painting things myself, I’ve never really been all that great at it. Animals and objects I can do ok, I think,  but drawing people is something I’ve always had a bit of a hard time with.

To give you an idea of what I mean, let me show you a few character sketches I did years ago when I was writing my first Fantasy book, Kismet and Tell. These are sketches of Marissa “Riss” Cobalt, the main character (and also the main character in Chronicles of Riss), and one of the other lead characters, Fiore.

As you can see, they’re not all that great. I wish I could do better, especially with the anime/manga style, but I really believe my artistic talent lies more with writing than it does with drawing.

  1. Those are not bad drawing at all. I bet with practice you can take it to the next level.

  2. These are pretty good, actually! Certainly much better than anything I can come up with. More important, you did it, even if it doesn’t please you esthethically. You’ll get better the more you do it. Hey, gotta start somewhere, right?

  3. These are awesome, Jeanne! I have a hard time with stick figures, so you’re miles ahead in that regard. 😀
    By the way, I sent you an email earlier. Please let me know if you received it, as it’s a bit pressing. Thanks! 🙂
