I’m not terribly satisfied with this one. I started my drawing way too late and ended up changing my subject when I realized that I’m too tired and distracted to handle foreshortening well. The inking was done with a 00 Sable mix brush, so it was a learning experience if nothing else.

Meditations on my September drawings

with one comment

  • Alternatively attractive people are more fun to draw than pretty people.
  • I like clean lines and bold areas of pure black more than I like chaotic hatching.
  • I don’t do as well when I’m tired or distracted.
  • I need to be happy with the penciling before I start inking.
  • Sometimes my symbols for eyes and nostrils still get in the way of the way something “really” looks, and I need to work on that.
  • Sometimes the way something “really” looks gets in the way things “should” look, and I need to work on that as well.

This is the first full body I’ve done in a while. I’m still getting my inking chops together, but I’m not totally discouraged by the outcome. I need some nice sable brushes.
