Today we were given a collection of reference images to draw inspiration from. I wasn’t very interested in any of them, but I went with a woman holding a gun. I had some anxiety going into this because I didn’t think I could generate anything remotely cool, but this drawing is a breakthrough for me. There’s nothing particularly spectacular about it, but it’s a comic book style drawing, which I always saw as out of my reach as an artist. I’m very excited to attempt more drawings like this and try to develop an illustration style around them.
She’s an assassin. She killed my self-doubt.
