Day 14: Draw your favorite book character.
|5.5" x 8.5" ballpoint pen on sketchbook paper|
The Hunchback of Notre Dame is the most depressing work of fiction I've ever read - but it's also one of my all-time favorite stories. Quasimodo is among my favorite characters, whether portrayed by Tom Hulce, Lon Chaney, Charles Laughton, or Anthony Hopkins.
I wanted to tidy up an older design I'd made in 2011 for my Costumed Figure Drawing class, based heavily on Hugo's description from the book.

This 'final' illustration is something I want to push myself with, but I'd prefer to draw the background when I recreate it.
