Lackadaisical

Last week my mom was flooded out of her home by a burst pipe. Having some experience with this kind of thing, I helped her with her home.

Anyway, I find myself with a weird dilemma. Nude pics.

Lots of nude pics.

Don’t get me wrong, ladies. As problems go, it’s an interesting one to have. But on the flip side, I have people who don’t want me to draw them because they think I only draw naked women!

As some of you have noticed, that’s not true. But because I draw a lot of fitness types, well…they are proud of the work and rightly so. Oh well. Guess I’ll have to get more creative.

Wouldn’t want to be considered a one trick pony.

Show [No] Go

       Travel has been a big part of the last few weeks of my life. It’s good to be home, in a lot of ways.

      My life studies are still going on. I’ve gotten a little better, though I won’t pretend to have mastered anything yet. Work in progress, right?

     It’s not skin tones or their shading that bothers me. It’s hair! I’m finding that while there is one overall dynamic to doing it, variation on the theme is extensive!

    So these images have allowed me to get somewhat better at creating realism.

      This sketchbook is clearly filling up a lot faster than others. Maybe I’m getting better at making casual art? Who knows…

     I have a lot of work to get caught up on. Maybe I will have time to draw again in a few days. Things are THAT hectic. It’s hard to find time for my own art while working on stuff for others.

      It could be worse I guess. These were problems I wanted last year, lol. Unforseen consequences.

     So. This picture took me almost an hour. Not bad. 

    See? Practice pays. 😉
