Wow. Well, visually it's working like a charm because I'm intrigued as hell. It almost look like a sentient zombie holding something that interests him more than brains. I'm sure I'm way off the mark on that though.
Do you use photos to guide your drawings? If not, care to share your drawing approach?
Thanks, Mike! You aren't far off...Jamie - No, I don't use photos, usually. I do have a full sized mirror in front of my drawing table that I use for seeing arms/hands/facial expressions. If the drawing needs something specific, I will use reference photos.A lot of the time I'm working on blank 8 1/2x11 paper and just making rough drawings that I then scan into the computer and move around/re-size until I'm happy with the overall composition. I then print it out in non-photo blue and either pencil it tighter or just go straight to ink. I tend to use a lot of whiteout as I make changes to stuff all over the place. Sometimes I think there is more whiteout on my pages than ink. :)
Very cool of you to elaborate. I like your 'mirror in front of you' methodology; definitely seems like it would help to train the brain to get outside of itself and see the shapes for what they are.And I totally feel you on the patchwork.. correction tape and erasers are the angels of imagination.
