Plot twist. Instead of drawing total strangers on Reddit, I've decided to surprise some of my good friends with a random sketch. Say hello to "Project Amigo"! :D There are still so many friends that I would like to draw, so stay tuned. Just saying, this project isn't over yet! :) Drawing my friends turned out to be harder than expected. I really wanted them to be recognizable as a cartoon character. Some fun facts: I changed the topic of Pieter-Jan's paper, and Niels' drawing really didn't feel complete without a cute Moogle on his shoulder. In fact, my friends don't know anything about this project yet, so I'm going to suprise them right now. I hope they like the result!
Every once in a while, I visit RedditGetsDrawn (RGD) to surprise total strangers with a hand-made drawing. I really love the whole idea behind RGD for several reasons: there are no obligations, the models are extremely appreciative towards the artists, and it's a great way for me to practice new techniques! You can ask for constructive criticism, but since you're making drawings out of your free will, people are not allowed to say bad things about them. And believe me, in a world where people always have bad things to say about others, that's quite a relief. :) I recently made three drawings for random Redditors who wanted to get drawn. As a matter of comparison, I am also posting the reference pictures. All drawings were made in my beloved Final Fantasy sketchbook. I even used crayons for one of them, something I haven't done in over 8 years! :D Which style do you like most?
It's a beautiful sunny day, so I'm going to have a nice walk with Niels in Maastricht. :) Enjoy the weather!
