The bottom drawing is one of my favorites in the sketchbook. Unfortunately I also find the actual drawing fairly weak... but the intent was there. And that, in this case, is more important to me.
I saw this guy hunched over on the subway.. and everything about the situation had the most depressing story and immediately my mind was empathizing with his silhouette. I mean, he just looked so sad. I know I didn't catch the emotion that well but it was a situation where I really tried... and failed. And it taught me that I need to shoot for that more often and fail. That is when I really know how to interpret and design and change things. I just find it hard to not be distracted by facial features. But I will continue to try to draw story.
Maybe some day soon I will have a drawing that has story that I can call a success.
