Emotions - fear

I am still learning how to draw emotions (see my first tries here). From faces, I've graduated to drawing complete scenes. And I am making all the beginner's mistakes, too: I drew the little girl first, then decided to put her in a basement (a favourite past-time of Austrians, as you'll know). Only afterwards did I notice that the perspective of the shelves and the window does not match the viewpoint of the observer of the girl - since we are nearly level with her head, we should be seeing the bottom of the upper shelves, and the top of the window frame.

Well, for the next one I'll do a rough preliminary sketch first, to check out the perspective. Coming up soon: Sorrow.

On a completely different note, I am thoroughly incapable of posting once per day, and will no longer try. I will, however, try to post a couple (for an as yet undefined value of 'couple') of times per week.


  1. well, i think the picture is awesome!

  2. I have trouble with perspective too, but that's to be expected. I have trouble seeing in perspective just in my every-day life.

    You're doing well if you know where you made mistakes.
