No Snazzy Way to Say Eleven

Red-Pic

No surprise I have a day off and I can barely get myself to finish my daily sketch, now that I have to get ready for work all I want to do is finish this Red sketch.  Sigh.  Life can be silly sometimes.

I took the picture with my phone and then brought it in Photoshop because the lines were still really light.

I was looking through my reference pictures from one of my Boards on Pinterest, not sure what made me choose a really hard perspective shot, but it’s turning out pretty good so far.  Had to pull out my old Head Turn Around I made a couple months ago for Red to make sure I was drawing her right.

I’ll definitely be returning to this later.

Looking at my Head Turn Around reminds me that I haven’t completed a full Body Turn Around yet.  :/
Much work to do I have.

A Spider has Eight Legs

Leg study, a bit rough around the edges, but I know it’ll pay off in the end.  Can’t wait to be able to draw poses without reference again.  It’s been too long.

Seven years later, I find myself revisiting one of my first characters in the EFIL Universe.  June is back and better than ever in this pencil, ink, watercolor pencil and grey-scale Prismacolor drawing.

I first came up with this character back in 2008 and it was pretty cool to look back at my older digital painting of June and see my progression over the years.
