Trying To Create Characters For My Planned Hobbit Sequence

The plan is to create a photo video of The Hobbit, in which I have to photos for each chapter, and read an excerpt from The Hobbit that the photo relates to. I’m currently trying to create my characters that I will blend into each photo.

Drawing is a very weak point of my creativity, so I’m watching YouTube clips which demonstrate cartoon character drawing, and observing face and clothes structure on TV. These attempts are poor, but they are a starting point for me, and good practice, we can only start something we can’t do from the place where we are.

These are drawn on paper, but I also have others on my pc which are drawn on my graphics tab. I’ve already selected the passages from each chapter of the book. The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings have very few female characters, but I’m going to include male and female hobbit, dwarves, elves etc.

I have such a long way to go… Feels like the drawing is too big for me. Time to live outside my comfort zone.

    1. At the moment I find it easier on paper. The graphics pad is great, but it will take a while to get used to looking at my TV screen to see what I’m drawing on the pad. It has got a little easier since I discovered photoshop rotate tool. It means I can manually rotate the sketch so the lines I’m drawing are more in flow with natural movement of the wrist.
