Images and some writing
A pen and ink gesture I enjoyed doing since I had to move quickly.
A watercolor study of a statue, it was interesting trying to establish volume using layers of color.
Hi y'all, my post is long overdue and it's something I should have done earlier but I am doing it now finally. Well I have had the issue of why is figure drawing important to working in the illustration world rattling around in my noggin for a bit. To me it's looking at the model and realizing it's very complex but I can only do so much to get it down, just how do I communicate the things I see in a clear way. Just how complex do I want to make a drawing, even if I get "everything" down I can lose so much if I cannot get one aspect I think makes the figure what it is stand out. That to me is the point in illustration clarity, yet I would like to make things a wee bit complex since that is what I like honestly.
