I’ve been practicing my figure drawing yesterday, and I’ve noticed that my proportions in general need some work. In this guy, his legs just aren’t long enough, which made me realize that he doesn’t look balanced either because of it.
I also seem to have a tendency to shorten arms, which I’ll need to work on. Practice practice practice :)
I drew this on my failed watercolor paper, which has a smooth side and a rough side. This is on the rougher side, which I’m not sure if I like because while it gives great texture, I’m not fond of all the white specks showing through. I’ll probably go back later and try to fill it in.
I also wasn’t really sure what to do about the background, but I think I’m okay with it so far, the kind of layered effect with the gray.
I was trying to give her a sort of hopeful expression but I don’t know if I succeed or if it’s just my wishful thinking :)
It’s been so busy! I feel like I haven’t had time to do anything, just classes and meetings all day. So I just started doodling the alphabet. I had no idea where I was going with this so it’s really random and kinda just for fun :D
Also, I’d just like to say a big thank you to all the people following and liking my blog. It’s been really pleasantly surprising because when I started posting these pictures I really wasn’t expecting anyone to actually see them, so I just want to say that I really appreciate it! :)))
