I Become a Doting Father chapter 28
In fact, after I quit art, I hated holding a pen or brush in my hand.
I hated the idea of giving up art because of that.
Well, pencils and other things were tools for art rather than studying to me when I was a student.
Every time I held it in my hand, I couldn’t do anything about the past.
Well, there wasn’t much to catch.
I gave up my college entrance exam and have lived helplessly.
The only thing to hold a pen was to write a part-time contract.
In other words, it’s been quite a while since I held a pencil.
If I were to limit myself to the art pencil I’m holding, it’d be my first time in six years.
Can I do it?
I honestly don’t know until I draw it.
I don’t know if I can bring back that feeling. No, honestly, I’m nervous.
If you don’t do anything for a long time, you’ll lose your touch.
And six years is enough time to do that.
In the midst of anxiety over such thoughts, Yeon-du’s voice was heard.
“What Yeondoo’s dad was good at…” And I…”
Yeondoo smiled at what was so good.
Are you happy to know that I did a good job?
When I saw Yeon-du smiling like that, I lost all my thoughts in my head.
Yeah, you won’t know until you try anyway.
Whether I can do it or not.
Before I sketched in the past, it was a habit.
After turning the pen with my hands, the tension would go away.
Then I set the scope to sketch.
The part where my painting is going to go in…
It was the channel art part of Yeondoo Tube.
Of course, Channel Art still exists.
Simple channel art with a light green background and white font.
It was Channel Art that was made in a short time just 10 days ago.
In fact, it wasn’t bad considering it was made in a hurry.
It’s a channel art that has a soft feeling using the usual color combination.
But in other words, that’s just about it. It’s neat and it’s not repulsive, and it feels soft.
It didn’t make sense to expect great high quality in the first place.
Therefore, I was going to make channel art with hand painting and replace it.
Like I said, the characterization of Yeondoo.
Channel art with Rust.
Of course, if the results come out well, then there’s the assumption.
Let’s do this.
First, I drew a rectangle that fits the size of the channel art.
Yeondoo stared at the scene, wondering if it was interesting.
I haven’t done anything yet, but I’ve got a bell.
The way I looked at it made me smile.
Anyway, a rectangle the size of Channel Art was made.
Now, even if the sketch breaks through the rim, the part to be used is limited to the inside of the rectangle.
As such, the preparation of “Handpainting Yeondoo Tube Channel Art” has been completed in advance.
* * *
There were only two ingredients.
Art pencils for sketch drawings and Fevercastel colored pencils in 120 colors.
I thought about painting it in watercolors, but it was complicated without materials.
And colored pencils were also my personal favorite tool.
By the way.
It felt different to take out this colored pencil case after a long time.
Quitting art, I threw away most of my art tools.
brushes and easels and watercolors – acrylics and oil paints.
But this Fevercastel colored pencil is a car.
I couldn’t throw it away. There was only one reason.
‘Cause my dad gave it to me.’
Even before entering high school, my father spent 250,000 won to buy it for me.
I haven’t taken it out often since I died, but I’ve never thought about throwing it away.
Well, that’s natural. I’m not a bad girl.
I never thought I’d use it this way again.
“Do you know what this is?”
Yeondoo answered, shaking her head.
I don’t know.’,
That’s understandable. It doesn’t look like a colored pencil case at first glance.
Originally, the Pevercastel colored pencil case was.
Chinese delivery box-shaped steel box, outer.
FEBER—CASTEL} is what it says.
Instead, 120 colorful pencils are placed in this rugged container.
I talked to Yeondoo, raising the corners of my mouth.
“Yeon-du, would you like to open it?”
“Hey, does Yeondoo have a lot of…?”
Yeondoo carefully reached out to the colored pencil case.
The idea that it’s precious to you.
Do you think he’s holding it?
I felt something strange. I can’t believe my daughter opened the colored pencil case that my late father gave me.
What kind of expression would my dad make when he sees this?
Yeondoo screamed in surprise at the dull sound.
It’s really fun. He opened it and surprised himself.
Anyway, the iron barrel was opened, and brilliant colored pencils arranged by color appeared.
Yeondoo opened her mouth and exclaimed.
“Haha, what do you think, Yeondoo?”
“It’s pretty, red. Yellow… and…
Yeondoo stretched out her familiar colors and shouted with excitement.
“It’s light green!
I said without the light green colored pencil that Yeondoo pointed to.
“Yeon-du, it’s the color that I’m going to use the most while drawing you. Light green
“LOL, yeah. Light green.”
It wasn’t meant to be, but it was rather fun. A five-year-old old man’s
Yeondoo’s eyes sparkled with anticipation.
I said with a grin.
“Then let’s really get started.
* * *
The first thing to draw was a sketch.
Essential task for setting and sketching contours, composition, etc.
It was only possible to color it with colored pencils when the sketch was completed.
I spoke to Yeondoo, who was stuck next to me.
“Yes! Hurry up and draw, Dad…r
“No, I can’t.”
“Yeondu, you shouldn’t see your dad draw it'”
That expression came out again.
He looks like he’s going to cry if I touch him. Oh, my. Sad face. A very upset expression.
I spoke in a hurry.
“My dad draws Yeon-du as a character.
Yeondoo is the main character of the painting.’
“So Yeondoo, you should be the model.
“Yes, Yeondoo is sitting in the chair so he can see and draw. I’ll show you after I finish drawing.”
Only then did Yeondoo sit on a chair and look at me to see if she understood.
The sight aroused a sense of playful.
“Yeon-du, can you smile brightly?”
“So this time… A sad look!
Yeondoo immediately looked very upset.
“A look of surprise this time.”
“Oh, my God! ,,…
“Then this time……”
Yeah. You’d have noticed by now, but I was playing a joke.
A kite that keeps responding to every word I say.
Because Doo is cute.
“Dad, I’m having a hard time.”
It was not until a long time later that Yeondoo made a sound of bolmen.
Well, that’s enough. Let’s stop here.
“Okay, Yeondoo. Now, you can make a comfortable face for Yeondoo.,’
Yeon-du had a natural look on her face at my words.
I started sketching in earnest.
Let’s do this.
What I was trying to do wasn’t a copycat.
I was trying to make Yeondoo’s character.
It was necessary to exclude detailed proportions of the human body or drawing it as it is.
There’s something my art teacher used to say to me often.
Juwon, your strength is reinterpretation. He has his own feeling. And
Those are the fewest children.
This was the simple interpretation of this word. You don’t paint exactly what you see.
Of course, in entrance art, the ability to draw what is in front of you has been effective in performance.
I also compromised and practiced it constantly.
But basically, my favorite art wasn’t “mimicking.”
As the art teacher said, I liked to reinterpret the scene in my head.
It was the same now.
Of course, you have to draw the characteristics of Yeondoo.’
The meaning of reinterpretation in art is ‘drawing as you please’.It wasn’t.
It meant that the characteristics of the objects were emphasized as much as possible and that the objects were drawn with originality.
Moreover, Yeondoo was the prettiest child I’ve ever seen in my life.
Of course, I had to make use of the characteristics.
And what I thought was,
When I went to my maternal grandmother’s house, Yeondoo was in a flower garden.
I was going to bring that feeling to life. It’s like a fairy tale.
There were still pictures of that time, but there was no intention or reason to see them.
Yeondoo’s image was clearly in my head.
I didn’t mean to lose the feeling in my head when I saw the picture.
‘First, draw an outline, and proceed with a detailed sketch.’
Yellowish lake-like eyes, pale cheeks, cherry-like lips. a natural smile on one’s lips
And the flowers and stems that bloom around.
I thought about what color to paint and proceeded with the sketch.
There were things I added at random.
Yeondoo likes princesses.’
The first day I met Yeondoo, it was a word I told.
Yeondoo has been a princess since then.
I’m starting to like fish.
The hair salon also said she wanted to cut it like a princess.
So what I thought was, “Forest Princess.” It wasn’t that hard to get the feel.
It was enough to think of a vine-shaped crown and draw it on Yeondoo’s head.
The design of the vine is pretty., Even the colors could be unified into light green, making it a point.
So I’m going to do it one by one.
I proceeded with “Chi.
I felt something while drawing.
What is it?
I was really nervous before I drew it.
From some point on, I was sketching so naturally.
The quality of the sketch did not seem bad either. It was a novel sense of hands moving on their own.
“Hehe. Aren’t you tired, Dad?”
“Not at all. Yeondoo’s not having a hard time sitting down.
“Yeon-du is not hard at all! It’s so much fun to see my dad draw.；
Yeondoo couldn’t see my picture at the angle.
Then all I can see is my hands moving.
Yeondoo kept smiling at me even though it wasn’t a short time.
A five-year-old kid.
Is it a muse?’
It’s cringe-worthy, but it’s used in music.
I remembered something.
The reason why I can draw without much awkwardness even though it’s been 6 years.
Maybe it’s because of Yeondoo.
I grinned and proceeded with the sketch.
Before long, the sketch was over.
‘Next up is coloring.…’
Before coloring, there was something to be done.
I picked up the eraser and tapped on the sketch.
It was intended to weaken graphite and make coloring easier.
This is the end of all the work for coloring.
‘There’s no need to delay.’
I took out the colored pencil right away.
As I thought about it while sketching, the colors that I usually use were chosen.
The biggest factor that determines the quality of the painting when coloring was the line.
Sometimes you have to be delicate and sometimes bold.
I carefully started coloring.
Overall, a light green base.
The crown of vines, stems of flowers, and clothes were all light green.
Of course, there are other colors.
The petals were intended to use various colors such as light pink.
A pleasant sound came to my ears. One of the reasons I liked colored pencils was this sound.
an oblique angle
Color pencils No. 52 and No. 55 of the light green system give a lively impression to the leaves.
No. 61 and No. 62 colored pencils for various effects by adding gradation to the petals.
Before I knew it, I was completely immersed in coloring.
How long has it been?
I finally completed channel art.
As I looked into the finished painting, I felt indescribable emotion.
It takes less than 15 minutes to make Channel Art.
Aside from this excitement, there was only one thought that came to mind when looking at the finished painting.
I’m not dead yet.
“Dad drew it too long. It was hard to sit down.’
I should have played prisoner.
I thought it would take a long time, but I didn’t think it would take this long.
Yeondoo shook her head and said,
“I’m not tired, Yeondoo! But, uh, can I see your picture now?
“Yes, of course. Yeondoo, you’re the main character.”
It just occurred to me.
It’s good that I’m drawing after six years because it’s Yeondoo.
Yeondoo slipped down from the chair.
And he looked up at me and held out his hands.
How can each and every gesture be so cute?
By the way, I’m surprisingly nervous. But when I tried to show you.
You’re not going to hear “I don’t want to!” again, are you?
“Here you go.”
I grinned and held out the picture to Yeondoo.
A picture that might represent Yeondoo Tube.
