Here was my piece for the zine “Historical Pooches”. Proceeds went to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
So this year I decided to start a little experiment. Since I tried out the Inktober last year, I wanted to do one of my own. The idea came from another fellow artist Karoline Pietrowski. So the idea is that couple times during the week I would do a quick character design based off a full body picture and a personality description that is provided by volunteers.
Everyday I will draw someone (anyone) that requests to be drawn. They don’t have to be people I know, but they must be aware of the rules. Now these are the criteria:
1. I need a full body (preferably clothed picture of yourself, I know I have some funny friends out there that might test the water on this). Make sure it’s clear and I can see your face. Don’t send me just your headshot. Full body photo for reference.
2. I need a short description of your personality. For example: age, gender (yes I’m asking for that as well), occupation, etc. anything really to help me figure you out better when I pose or give you a facial expression.
3. Are not afraid or offended that I may exaggerate features that I may find to be important to shape and form.
4. Make sure to private message me on fb https://www.facebook.com/EdwardTaylor or email me email@example.com for any questions or to provide me with the needed picture and basic information. Please do not send me long bio of your entire life. lol
Remember this is an experiment that I hope I can do each day (maybe as my daily warm ups).
Let’s see who volunteers. Thanks guys!
Noticed that Samurai needs his bangs cut so I drew him on my coffee lid yesterday. Hope you enjoy.
