Halfway through the Beetlejuice pictures another image popped into my head. I watched a ton of Guardians of the Galaxy during the holidays and the idea of drawing a baby Groot was just too tempting to pass up. It would give me a chance to practice color and see how much I could play with the new medium.
This one actually went so fast I didn’t have a chance to take pictures of the process. Like many of these I wasn’t used to the methodology so about four times during the drawing I thought I’d ruined it. I did manage to get a picture of the finished version:
I didn’t have a brown pastel at the time so I ended up mixing my own. It worked relatively well even if it came out a bit green.
I added the glowing parts after I finished and found the composition to be a little left-heavy. Plus it gave me a chance to try something I couldn’t do in pencil.
I was pretty happy with it for a spur-of-the-moment picture. And it got drawing Groot out of my system!
