It’s amazing how frustrated I get when I don’t draw. All of a sudden I sink into this crazy depression. It’s even more strange how my drawing craving ranges. For example when I draw/create stuff for work it’s as if it balances that desire to draw constantly. But nothing- NOTHING gives me more satisfaction like drawing personal stuff. I’m not talking about a little sketch here and there in the afternoons I’m taking about strange drawing fixations that has me waking at 7am on a Saturday morning to finish them off… Super sad I know.
Anwyho I did this sketch for an online competition. The theme was Excalibur so I decided to portray Lancelot and Guinevere. The idea stemed from reading about one of Lancelot’s battle and I liked to think that bloodied and beaten he went to Guinevere.I wanted her sadness to be transparent as she’s distraught that her lover nearly died in battle but also because she’s torn between the man she loves and doing the honorable thing which means staying unhappily married to King Arthur. Gotta love Love Stories! It’s a work in progress but I thought I’d share.
