I had this picture in my head. I specifically didn’t want to line it, I wanted to use color to define the edges of the drawing. I also knew I didn’t want a background, this one was about the posture and capturing the ‘attitude’ of the subject. I think I got it.
The posture was tough, it was the proportion that made it difficult and since I was working from my minds eye and not a model or photograph it was more difficult then i thought. The legs and the perceived length of his legs gave me the hardest time. Again I am satisfied with with result.
Color: hummmm….I need better water colors to really push this. The flesh tone was done buy combining a ridiculous pink and a really dark brown and diluted all to crap, not 100% happy but it works ok. I actually like the way his face turned out. The jacket and pants are crap, meh…need to spend more time drawing fabric.
Right….I’m going to bed.
Music: Metal! he he he Genius mix from my library Crue, Metallica, Whitesnake, Skid Row, Van Halen….
