I Want Some Gamora
My family and I drove to the Oregon coast over Spring Break and found the weather pleasant. It was a nice little getaway and I enjoyed myself immensely. Of course, I took my drawing kit but spent most of my time walking the beach, enjoying the company of my family, or reading the book Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett. When I had a moment and I chose to draw there wasn’t much in my gas tank to motivate me. I had scratched a few doodles in my sketchbook, but nothing to inspiring until the penultimate day when I scrawled out this illo of Gamora from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I took it home a colored it with markers and pencils and here it is.
There are times I find myself pretty uninspired or, frankly, just struggling with the basics of art-marking. I had come down with a bad cold which seemed to only get worse as our vacation slipped away, so I think giving myself a little time off helped to recharge my batteries. As an artist or anything else, for that matter, its always a good investment to recuperate when you’re able to afford it.
Currently, I’m still working on sketches and commissions. If you’d like a commission, please contact me. I’d be happy to talk to you.
