Mel

For those of you who don't know, my puppy Mel died in a terrible accident a while ago and somehow to overcome the grieve I decided to draw her. I've got her the way she will remain on my mind, but the sketch style isn't the way I'm used to.

I don't draw this way, with angry lines and inconsequential traces, but that's how she came to be on paper.

Maybe when I draw out of feelings I can't recognize my own clean and strong drawing style - the style I had to master to become an animator. I think I should forget the technique more often and pour my heart on a white sheet. I felt much lighter when I did this.
