I have finally started the new phase of my art journey, where I focus on character design and drawing people! I am super excited about this, because drawing people is what really got me back into art around a decade ago, and I think it’s what I will be the most happy working on.
Here are three sketches I made this week:
A sketch of a girl in a touque. I used a reference photo from https://www.instagram.com/portraittpage/
My first sketch of Mercy from Overwatch! The reference photo I used is a pretty common image of her. Mercy’s real name is Angela Ziegler, hence the blog post title.
Since the Olympics are currently on, I decided to draw an Olympian. This is the American snowboarder, Shaun White. I used a reference photo from a BBC article about him.
I’ll probably stick to drawing Olympians for now, because it’s a good opportunity to draw people in uncommon positions.
That is for now! More sketches coming soon!
