I’ve been sketching lately. Here’s the progress and the final product of my latest sketch, “Warrior.” I didn’t want her to be too pretty. She’s got a busted nose, black eye, scuffed chin, etc. You know she’s just been in some street fight. Girls kick butt though, can I get an amen?
Work was done with three different graphite pencils on sketch paper.
I’d like to talk about Edward Scissorhands. Despite his jarring appearance, he was just a boy who never was taught the ways of society. With an open mind, he discovers the traditions of the “real world.”
Many times he is taken advantage of for his innocence.
Innocence-What a concept. Wide eyed and naive, this character becomes seasoned in the ways of the world. He develops feelings and emotions he never experienced before; anger, sadness, jealousy and regret.
Those feelings of jealousy and regret (in my opinion) stings the most. We become so caught up the “real world” that we have lost ourselves. We lost our innocence.
What would “little” you say to the lifestyle you currently live?
“I am not finished.” Words to live by. Keep that childlike innocence alive.
