I’ve been trying to get myself to draw more, so I can get a steadier hand and most of all: more patience. I feel I have improved a lot at the ‘looking’ part of drawing, but setting it on paper still remains a challenge. Especially when I want to draw something from my own imagination, instead of the real world.
Luckily, I found something to help me relax and get into the flow of doodling around: Zentangle. I now have my favourite little notebook with me all the time (a tiny LEGO Moleskin, swoon) and all my train rides are filled with tangling.
I discovered bumpy train rides make my hands even less steady, so now I have an excuse for all the flaws in my linework.
Today, I gave in to a tiny Disney movie marathon and fell in love with Stitch. Yes, I admit it. I’m a 26-year-old Disney fanatic that had never seen “Lilo and Stitch” before. Well. I’m sold.
And of course I went straight looking for a tutorial on how to draw this adorable critter. I love kids tutorials, they make everything so clear for noobs like me. And I learn a lot about how to build a drawing with shapes.
I kept it quick and dirty, in grey shades. There are some small mishaps, but overall, I’m happy with the result. Isn’t he cute?
