Maybe stylized isn’t the right word? It’s a bit cartoon-y. I drew the top one late last night working from a reference photo & was originally attempting for a more lifelike representation, but then fudged it up. So I went for a more stylized drawing, & I’m actually rather pleased with the result – mainly because this is something that I can’t ever remember attempting before, & I’m surprised I could even manage it.
I tried this next one this morning, also from a reference photo:
This time I was attempting another stylized drawing, but it didn’t turn out exactly like that – although I don’t think it’s super lifelike either.
Anyway, this is rather interesting to me so I think I’ll try more of these in the future. Things I’ve realized in the process of doing these two small drawings:
- I need to practice facial features (noses, eyes, ears…)
- I need to start drawing more of the body than the head, which means:
- Mooooooooore anatomy
- My fabric folds could use some work
- As always, my shading needs some improvement
Yay. Drawing these past few days has been quite enjoyable for me.
