Sometimes a piece can just not come together. This skateboarding fox has been frustrating me since last week when “skateboard” and “fox” came up as twoodle words. I couldn’t get the motion and shape of the fox right. Pages of sketches went by. I tried shifting to other pieces, reading a book, taking breaks. It was messing with all of my drawing mojo. Finally getting this to a place I am excited about is freeing.
Looking forward to finishing up other pieces tomorrow since I’m back in the flow of illustrating. I was working on a couple pieces all week along with these sketches but, now I feel I can finish them with flourish.
