I hate trying to take selfies, especially with the iPhone. Sure, they make it real easy by putting a camera on the front, but the picture quality is really poor. Sometimes I feel awkward asking people to take a picture of me with my boyfriend when we are on a date, so I’ll just snap a quick pic.
I did this at Boomsday the other night, trying to get some of the fireworks in the backdrop.
Not a bad shot really, but its so grainy. At least it captured the moment though, right? Not worthy of printing or putting in a photo album, though.
So I come across these moments where I wish I could take better pictures, or recapture moments where we didn’t even break out a camera.
And I thought,
“Time to break out the pencil and paper!!”
And here’s the result. I was inspired to re-capture that moment together in front of the fireworks, so I doodled what it might have looked like to someone passing by. This was a very quick sketch, not even 15 minutes. But I went ahead and did it because I need to get back into practice again. I have a big idea in mind…..bigger than the fictional living room. But that’s a long way off, and I can’t say anything more.
Either way, hoping to practice these little doodles more and improve my cartoon style.
Hope you enjoyed today’s doodle!
