I drew this on Friday, but wasn’t able to get it to you until now.
Earlier this week, I saw an image of Indy which I believe to be during a scene from Last Crusade at Barnett College. I thought it would make a good challenge for a couple of reasons:
- I have no confidence in drawing human and animal figures, so this was a good image to try to sketch (not trace) to push my envelope a bit; and
- When people think of Indiana Jones, they of course envision something to the effect of this:
- So if I stick to the conventional image of this character (bull whip, fedora, leather jacket, stubble), you could identify him even if I had drawn it with crayon. With my left hand. With my eyes closed.
Well that’s no good. I wanted to push myself to actually capture the person, not their effect. So here’s the image I used:
And the result:
Not terrible, really. I think I should do more portraits, given this is my first in over a decade.
