Another fictional cartoon sketch done straight from a pen. This sketch was for no reason. It started off with a few lines. and gradually it developed with people, buildings, roads, street lamps, and birds hanging around.
Hence the title 'Street Walkers'.
You could guess by now how I entertain myself when I am pretty free. Pity my pen and pencil. They hardly get some rest...
But what I could remember was this: I did not intend to draw a daze looking soldier. I had a pen with me and a piece of paper staring at me. So i drew a curve. It looked like a shell. Then I complete the shell and it looked like a helmet to me. Then I added in the face, which in turn suggests to me now it looked like a soldier. And the rest is history.
There are some inaccuracies in the sketch. For example, the rifle and the spear don't look right. That is because the spear initially wasn't a spear. There was a line drawn which I didn't know why it was there and so I converted it (or rather camouflaged it) into a spear. =) And also army boys cannot have long hair. Hehe...
It was a fine afternoon and I was seated comfortably in a food court enjoying my bowl of Korean Kim Chi noodle. Then I was interrupted by two ladies who sat on the next table. Apparently the elderly aunt was complaining to her younger friend about his son and everything under the sun, soon that interruption became an opportunity.
An opportunity to draw. She looked kind of fun to draw. Soon her expression was shouting 'draw me, draw me'. And so... I captured her, and her friend, and the contextual background.
This time I only have a Pilot G-2 pen with me and of course my faithful little drawing pad.
Bought Furby in Sydney in 2000 during my second last year in Uni. Studying had been pretty stressful then and that was why I've decided to sketch Furby. Furby had been a great companion to me thought the language he spoke then were uncomprehensible.
