It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. But I’m still working – it’s just been a very head-down time in an attempt to get work done. I’m loving the drawing process now and how the slight change of an angle of a leg or head completely alters the dynamism of the subject.
My desk is lost under layers and layers of tracing paper and there are bits and pieces of it taped up all over the wall.
At this stage, the rider above looks a bit creepy for a children’s picture book (although not for the ones I liked as a kid). But he won’t be skeletal when he’s done – I just find paring the figures down to bones helps when working on posing. He’ll be draped in all sorts of shaggy and voluminous clothing when he’s finished.
