Don’t be sorry for your English, mine is worse, so, yah, let’s high five! \o/
Very good question!
Ok, as far as my Bucky’s Instagram is concerned, it wasn’t spontaneous at all. I didn’t wake up one morning and said "Let’s create an Instagram for Bucky, draw something this afternoon and post it tonight”. I had the idea at the beginning of July, doodled a bit because I wasn’t sure of what style I wanted for this project, posted the first artwork on August 17th on Instagram witout advertising the project on my Tumblr to see how it goes, to finally launch it seriously on August 29th. To be honest,I wanted it to stay on Instagram but as people started to repost on Tumblr without the caption and the source, I opened my own Tumblr devoted to Bucky’s Instagram.
Style wise, I tried a lot of things. I wanted to draw something sketchy, without a lot of details but I didn’t feel very comfortable about it so finally, I went for something detailed and very colorful. Here are some of the sketches I did before posting the first artwork:
I tried different textures, filters, brushes for the line art, etc before finally being sure of what I wanted style wise.
I also gave a couple of thoughts about what kind of pics were gonna be posted at this account. Dark stuff, schoomp, a bit of both? I went for a mix of both. I love making the audience go “Awwwww” and comfortable during several weeks in a row before posting something sad and reminding everybody that, after all, the guys are soldiers who spend a lot of time on the field. Not to mention that Bucky is in recovery but isn’t at 100% yet.
Now, I feel more comfortable about what I draw for this project and I can feel an evolution from the 1st art to the latest one I posted. You maybe can’t see it, but believe me, I can ^^
Voilà, I hope I answered your question :)
Thanks a lot for your message anon and have great weekend! ♥
