Inktober day 4

I’m posting these pictures, even though I’m not overly pleased with them as a whole as inktober is about improvement and practice. I decided to draw Sandra Bullock from gravity to start with, because I found that film haunting and beautiful, and because I watched The Martian (2015) Ridley Scott a few days ago and was so disappointed with the visuals and themes that I had to go back and draw from a superior film. The second image is Marion Cotillard in Macbeth (2015) which I saw last night, and although it wasn’t the greatest version I’ve watched I loved the visuals and I loved how Lady Macbeth was portrayed.

I’m happy stylistically with my pictures and with the quality of the work, I just feel that neither look like their intended actresses. Day 5 will be better.

  1. I have found that i cant draw perfectly every time and i have drawings that I am disappointed with as well. But when i do draw something pretty special, i am pretty happy. Maybe its a yin/yang balance thing!

    1. I’m learning to appreciate that even if I’m not entirely happy with a picture it’s contributed towards my practice at least on an experimental level 🙂 it’s very satisfying when an image pays off though

      1. Then when we get that drawing that is outstanding, we don’t understand why others aren’t buying this piece! Ha!

  2. I too have a few drawings i’m not satisfied with, but when i do draw that really good piece, i’m excited about the outcome. Maybe it takes a few so-so drawings before the great one arrives?
