so i am always looking for ways to break out in new directions with my art. i can do something for quite awhile (like draw myself almost 500 times in a row.) however, i eventually get sick to death of me.
so while admiring the work of lucy k draws over on instagram, i realized i need to go back to doing some figure drawing.
i have played around with figure drawing in the past, but i have fallen into a portrait drawing rut that is kind of starting to annoy me. so after studying a bit of lucy k’s work, i then realized i had a little bit of her style in me already & went into my bathroom to find a magazine to borrow from.
my first effort defaulted into the realm of portrait again….
but i was pretty happy with the second attempt (featured image for this post.)
so i am embracing figure drawing, my bamboo pen & ink brush, and playing around with exaggerated features while trying to do more realistic shadowing.
that’s what i’m up to.
