[listening to "the people" by common]
i was boosted earlier today after hearing "This is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan on my pandora radio. it's funny, i used to hate that song when it was popular, probably cuz the radio stations tend to play one song too much. now, it's not often that i hear it so when i do, it gets me goin.
anyways, thought i'd share what's on my art table today. workin on a sketchcard for a client. got the preliminary pink pencils on it, which is like half the battle for me. from here on out, it's easy-peasy. =P the rest of the images were warm-up sketches i did before drawing the card. just like with any warm-up exercising, it helps to do these to get me in the right mindframe for the task.
with these warm-ups, i was focusing on getting better at drawing butt-shots. i think i only just came to the realization that my modesty hinders my ability to look at certain body parts. namely crotches and nipples. which is why i try to avoid drawing those things in detail. but its all anatomy, right? so i should get over it, no? anyways, its a process and i'm trying. still makes me blush when i have to stare and draw those parts. all i know is that my idol, Olivia, isn't afraid of it. i imagine she'd tell me to man up! =P
the last sketch is me working out something else that i'm really struggling with - foreshortening. sigh.
