Make a scene!
... and draw your character in it.
Last week I asked you to explore your curiosity to create an authentic character idea.
This week I'd like you to draw them in different environments. I'm not asking you to draw their home or bedroom.
Draw them in places I've picked at random:
Think about how your character would behave in the scene you’re drawing.
There’s no need to get a perfect likeness or image. You’re doing this to generate ideas and get to know your character.
Why should you do this exercise?
Simply drawing your character in new scenes can teach you so much about them.
It'll open new creative pathways to push your story forward.
It's fun! You can hear the enjoyment in my voice when I do it in the video below.
Now seems like a good time to mention the Friday Feedback Forum! Every Friday I’ll create a thread in chat for paid members to post works in progress for feedback.
It's a place where you can upload what you're working on and get feedback from this lovely community (and me)!
