I’m a bit behind at work so I spent more time getting things done there today before getting the Indiana Jones Drawing started.
I’m really excited to see how this drawing will turn out because I need to add to it. Indiana’s fathers hands cannot be seen because his shirt cuff is covering their grasp and I feel that is super important. For the movie it was fine, but for a single image I need to show the grasping of hands.
Also the original movie was in a wide format so I need to extend Indiana and the ledge his father is standing on. I’m excited for these extra challenges beyond just getting the drawing to look like Harrison Ford.
As I mentioned in a previous post this is the part of The Last Crusade where his father finally calls him Indiana rather than Junior. It’s a touching scene, I’ll link it below, I would suggest watching the moving again or for the first time if you’ve never seen it.

I’m not sure why, maybe I was too distracted by work stuff but I couldn’t bring my mind to focus on motive for each of these drawings. My mind kept wandering.
I really like this drawing. Mainly because it features my awesome cats, but also because… Okay, fine, it’s all about the cats…
This was enjoyable because this is not a drawing of anything I’ve seen but something I imagined. I’m imagining this is what I looked like this morning when I was meditating and the cats decided to join me.
What went well?
Practicing a lot of micro wins today. I’m short on time but that doesn’t mean I can’t make progress. Process and progress is far greater than the outcome.
What didn’t go so well?
Distracted brain due to work and a super full schedule.
What did I learn and/or how can I do better?
I can begin drawings better than the Indiana Jones Drawing started today. Because of my rushed feeling I didn’t really rely on comparative measurement very much and leaned very heavily on Photoshop to help me with corrections.
