MONTHLY CHALLENGE #3: DRAW THIS SCENE! A week ago or so, I watched How To Train Your Dragon 2 (which is fantastic and you should watch it) and was so motivated to draw fanart that I drew (painted) a scene of Hiccup and Astrid from the movie! I didn't really think of it as a challenge as it was all really fun! But it did make me pay attention to details I normally don't look into when I'm drawing willy nilly- such as facial structures and interactions between characters in the setting. Instead of focusing on what to make, this challenge will help focus on how to make it! And hopefully will teach you a little technique or two the original artist used in there.
The goal of this challenge is to recreate a scene from any movie or show
. You are free to pick any movie or show, be it a live action or an animation/anime. Get a screenshot of the image you want to recreate and paint or draw it in your own style. Please try not to trace the original image; instead just eye ball it and do your best! The only requirement for this challenge is the format: your submission must include the original screen shot and your recreation of it
Here's my example!Tips and Tricks:
• You are free to pick colors from the original. It can be handy to gather simple base colors.
• Don't pay attention to details at first. Instead, your first focus should be on the larger shapes- the objects within the picture that convey what needs to be shown in the shot. Once you got the basic shapes down, you can gradually add detail to make it look like the real thing!
• Don't be limited to the original. For example, if you're redrawing an anime scene, you do not have to keep it in cell-shaded anime style. You can if you want, especially if it's not a style you normally don't do. Just know you are not limited in how you execute the recreation.
