I was wandering around YouTube earlier when I ran across an AMV of Cool World. I've never seen the movie, but decided to give the video a try anyway. Afterward, I just had to sit down and try sketching some of the female character's dance moves.
Here's the video that started this whole sketching mess.
Thanks to these three sketches, I've met my sketchbook goal for this month! I wanted to do sixty pages. As of this moment, I've done sixty-one. What did this prove? Not a damn thing. But, it was fun!
I don't think I'll be setting a sketchbook goal next month though. I read about something called the Sketch-a-Day Challenge where you're suppose to do a nice, finished sketch once a day for the whole year. I think I'd like to try that starting January instead. I also read about Sketch Crawl, where you spend a day wandering around your area and sketching things that interest you. I'd like to try that too, but not until sometime in the spring/summer. It's a little too cool around here right now. I can't wait to give that a try though. Downtown historic Plymouth and some of the back roads in the area have lots of interesting things just waiting to be sketched.
As for now, Matt and I will be heading out to Iowa in a few days. Which means, my folks will probably want to take a peak at my sketchbook. *looks at book* Oh dear.
Well, maybe I'll get lucky and snag a chance to sketch some of their neighbor's cows. Or that old schoolhouse that's partially falling down. That's pretty. What? I like the look of ruined buildings.
