New Art

Remember when I used to post artwork on this LJ, yeesh… I do… a faint memory now. Instead you guys get lame photos of sandwiches I’ve eaten (or stories of sandwiches taken away by border crossing police), me hyping Exated, me blathering about industry crapola or me telling you how busy I am.

Okay, this week I vow – Less talky and more arty!

I drew for myself today! No, really, I swear it’s true.

Initial gesture drawing.

Tightening up the form and attitude.


I think it’s got good attitude. I’m trying to show more life than just a cold standing pose. The turn of her left foot sideways against the ground makes me happy. It should look like attitude rather than a broken ankle, heh. Most of the clothed figures I draw from my head have extremely generic looking clothes, which is something I really want to evolve away from. I’m also pleased that the tightened up version is clear without becoming overly stiff. The pattern on the skirt turned out better than I thought it would. I think, all in all, it’s a step in the right direction.
