I spent the afternoon reworking my sketch from yesterday. Although I liked the chaotic energy of yesterday’s sketch, I also wanted to make it more of a cohesive story. In this redone sketch I have groups of figures standing together. The raised arms have a common rhythm and I think this helps to suggest unity. To convey the enormous number of people marching together, I put in groups of marks in the far background that could be waves of people. And I used even brighter colors to show the passion that caused more than 2.5 million people throughout our world to show up and make a statement.
This is a gouache and gel pen sketch on black Bristol paper. I used Snapseed and Procreate as well.
