Out of Practice

Knives Sketch

It’s been a while since I did any character sketching. Honestly, after the last bout of pathetic idiocy on DeviantArt, I thought I’d just hang up my pencil bag and not bother doing anything character related ever again. Mostly because I felt so annoyed and upset by outside sources that I’d be better off without it in my life.

I don’t think that’s true though. This need to draw characters and keep drawing them is inbuilt in me somewhere – I didn’t stop because people at University told me ‘I suck at it’ so why should I let some insignificant, arrogant shithead on the internet put my off?

I am out of practice though – it’s been a couple of weeks – and I am questioning the direction I’d like to go in with my characters. I’ve not had much ‘luck’ with the furry fandom; I’ve made some great friends certainly, but as of late it’s not been “for me.”

So, I’ve returned to one of my other fandoms. Warhammer. Combining with doing a spot of painting as and when I can, I feel it’s only right to come back to drawing it as well.

The sketch above is Knives. The Scout Sergeant from my home brew Space Marine Chapter – I can see a fair few errors with with the sketch, but it’s a start back on the path that I’d like to be on.
