How would you draw sadness?
Here are some early explorations of my Sadness character, when I thought that I needed to make it look more ‘original’. Hairy creatures passed the revenue. Too human figures. Too sad and dark figures. And even an elephant – until I decided a sad blob was fine. It worked and did it’s job. Better than the others could. Sometimes we just have to quiet the ego (or tutors voices 😅) – and just be of service of the book, I think.
Does anyone here have similar experiences? Where you are kind of surprised about where your work is taking you, as if you don’t have a say in the matter yourself?
