It’s been a while since I actually updated my blog with a drawing, so here’s one…. that I actually drew this back in December. Yup, it took me three months to get around to uploading it. I definitely haven’t been giving my art the attention that I should, but I have been productive with other projects.
I’m relatively pleased with the way this picture turned out. I wanted the focus to be on the mid/upper portion of the drawing, so I neglected detail in the lower third. Some of the shadows turned out a bit harsher than I intended, but they’re pretty good overall. I like the way that the hint of the ribcage turned out, but I don’t think the abs look as natural. The breasts are pretty good with the exception of the shading at the top right of the (viewer’s) left one. The collar bones turned out well, but I’m not satisfied with the way the neck looks. Oh well, there’s always next time!
Apologies for the white balance being a bit off with the photo. I took a quick shot of it and didn’t do any post processing (other than a quick resize), so it’s not as good as it should be.
