The problem: withdrawal. Culprit: D&D. Solution: Drawing our characters as the Avengers. That’ll make everything better!
Up first: my girl, of course, and Iron Man, of course.
The faces were a little bit easier today, and I’m happy with how the water turned out in the Katara bit.
(yeah, yeah, eventually I’ll draw something other than Avatar)
Best facial expression on the practice site thus far:
So far I’ve been sketching from practice-pose websites, model photos, and the Saga comics. This time I tried drawing from the one Birds of Prey issue I have, thanks to a giveaway at work. For some reason, these faces were much easier than the Saga or the real ones. Maybe they simplify them more than Saga does?
Hand cramps, not really. Butt cramps, yes. IKEA chairs, amirite?
More face practice. Alternating between gestures, faces, expressions, sketching from Saga, back to gestures.
^ shading practice- you’re probably wondering if the model in the reference photo actually had a weird plastic-surgeried nose. Answer: yes.
Reference from quickposes, I think
And a sleeping Alana from Saga. I’ll never understand how Fiona Staples puts together the faces of Saga in just a few lines, especially with the bkgd characters. Even when you look at them and go, “wait, that shouldn’t make sense proportionally, but it does and I totally buy it and it looks great.”
