When I sketched my friend’s dog and showed it to her, she liked what I had done. She then asked if she could keep it, and I obliged. A few weeks later. She sent me the following pictures. Once framed, even I have to admit it looks pretty good. Now I just have to sketch the rest of her dogs!
Did this sketch last week. I have trouble with profiles, so this one was a little tricky. The subject is facing away and turning back. It came out a lot better than I had expected.
This is an almost for me. Kind of looks like her, but definitely a miss. I still like it though. It’s got a cartoony look that works for me.
Nudes are difficult. There’s the part where it feels pervy and gratuitous, but the human body is a complex figure. I struggle with proportions all the time. And hands and feet are impossible.
