Indiana Jones Drawing Started

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.

If you are interested in why motive is so important or why I find it so important I would highly suggest to get The Natural Way to Draw and especially The Art Spirit.

Daily Composition

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.

Daily Composition

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.
