I'm learning Spanish. I'm doing it on my own with books, flashcards, and other gimmicks. It's kind of difficult to make it fun, so I decided to multitask learning Spanish and practicing cartooning. I have a box of flashcards of Spanish vocabulary. I pick adjectives and draw a character I imagine from that word. Here are some drawings I drew from various adjectives.
Wise - Sabio/Sabia
I really should do these cartooning exercises more often. Drawing from imagination is very very very difficult for me and I absolutely salute those who can do it with ease. Having a word just as a starting point makes the job all that much easier than starting with nothing.
ps these were done with graphite, a medium that I am trying not to hate. I hate how shiny it is, how it smears, how it never goes to black but stays gray. ugh, I hate it.
