Here is the last batch for the while. I had planned this purely as a creative exercise, but I’ve enjoyed them so much and got a lot out of it that it’s encouraged me to draw from my imagination more. So I will. Yeah.
I have had these sitting in my book for a week or so as I’ve been very bust putting together some bits for a new clothing line for Mr Kelvin Vidler, founder of Bench so I’ve been busy with meetings in London and setting up flats and putting together designs and stuff. More on that as and when.
Anyway, I am very happy with the latter of these pieces. I really tried to develop the visual emotion stuff far beyond anything I’d done before. Maybe I could’ve done more on the last one. Some of the hair isn’t so great. But a lot better than the earlier drawings. It’s funny how much easier it gets when you draw regularly (as stupid as that sounds) and more fun!
I think the trick is getting a style down as I’ve maybe gone a bit overboard with detail. Styled hair is a bit of a nightmare to draw, especially when it’s really over-styled. Having said that the last drawing’s hair is a triumph as far as I’m concerned.
At any rate, I really hope you have a Super-duper Christmas and a Happy New Year!
