Okay, that's not EXACTLY true.
A couple of years ago, I signed up for a beginner's art class that was supposed to teach me how to draw. Well, the teacher and I didn't exactly see eye to eye. Her idea of teaching was to repeatedly say some phrases that didn't mean anything to me, like, "Just draw what you see!" (If I could do that, I WOULDN'T BE HERE) and "Compare and contrast!" (?????)
So yeah. I've had a couple of lessons. But on the whole, I just try to draw what I see. HAHA!! Ironic, isn't it.
I didn't see this chicken in person today. Just a photo of him standing atop a building. He's a roadside attraction somewhere, I think. I thought he looked majestic and happy, so I decided to see if I could draw him. I was just playing, nothing serious.
I sketched him out in Sharpie and filled it in with watercolours. He does not look exactly like my model, but if I don't show you that one, then you can't compare and contrast, can you? Basically, if you can tell it's a chicken without me giving you a broad hint, (BAWK!) then I'm happy with how he turned out.
Of course, I can never leave well enough alone. I thought he was a little boring, so I added some extra details to the background.
Can you still tell it's a chicken?
Good. Then my work here is done.
