It’s Game Day for little Ronnie Weasley! It’s always a good day when I get to draw Ron.
And another experiment in coloring gingers. The hair came out especially well; it’s more golden than the robust oranges I sometimes do. This is better. I’m pretty happy with this one.
Ron and Harry (2018)
Happy lads, Ron and Harry, to gladden your day…
You can find more of Harry’s friends here.
Another marker drawing of my favorite ginger, Ron Weasley.
Basking in an unexpected day off mid-week, I spent my morning browsing images, enjoying other Harry Potter fan art, generally goofing off. Until I found an image of Ron (Rupert Grint) from the Prisoner of Azkaban movie. I couldn’t resist his apprehensive teenage gaze.
I’m pleased with it overall. There are mistakes, some of my usual distortions, but yeah, I like it. The colors that go into creating vibrant ginger hair–and that set it off–make me so happy. Sometimes I think the only reason I draw is to have something cool to color in. I still haven’t got freckles down as well as I’d like, but I’ll keep experimenting. You’ll find more drawings of Ron (and his friends) here.
Ron looks skeptical, but I’m back.
Or I’m going to try to be.
It feels good to be drawing more again after a creative hiatus last fall–stressful work, health issues, fun visits with my sister all seemed to throw me off. And after I’d had a good summer for drawing, especially with Prismacolor markers. I’m not sure why, but it seems after a break, I come back stronger. Maybe it’s just the cyclical nature of things. But it could also be that I stopped trying so hard to do so-called “great work” and just drew for the fun of it, just drew what I liked. I drew chibis, I drew Harry Potter, I used lots of color. I’m not a professional and I’m never going to be.
I’d also like to be active on this blog again. As a sign of that, here’s a recent marker drawing of one of my favorite Harry Potter characters, Ron Weasley. He, along with drawings from last summer, can now be found in my newly updated Harry Potter gallery. I hope you enjoy it.
