I rarely feel such a sad depressed connection with the character, as I do now. This could have turned out great if the colors wanted to cooperate.
They didn’t. And I spent too long trying to mend things which only made it worse. Eeyore is meant to be drawn in a single flat color, that is a very characteristic aspect of the show. Flat colors, dull background.
I made a decision to do this in watercolor, but regretted it the moment the green background did not turn out well. I should have done it differently. With Copic markers (which I do not yet own), crayons or even fingerpaint would have looked better.
Ohhhh bother Eeyore. Oh bother.
Another lesson learned, getting large areas of flat colors using watercolor (while surrounding a line drawing), is very hard to do. Before I realized, the drawing started to look like a five year old did it.
There is pride, perfectionism, and learning from my mistakes.
Perfectionism; “let’s redo this digitally tonight”
Pride; “I am not going to post this, it is horrible”
Realism; “You have no time, there is no shame in showing your struggles”
I learned a long time ago that what I perceive as failed attempts, others others might not. So there you are Eeyore, you lost your tail again.
