Argh! As I was getting down to do an environment, I gave in to procrastinating and ended up drawing some figures instead. They turned out pretty good, and before I knew it, the evening was gone… but at least I got this:
|On the Birthday of Mierette no Orchis|
This is one of the most memorable scenes in Kushiel’s Dart. But KD has a hell of a lot of memorable scenes, so I guess it’s not saying much. I really should have given it an environment and everything, but as always I didn’t plan ahead. I definitely prefer drawing nude figures to all other else (clothed figures, environments…vehicles…).
I had a bit of fun with the line-weight principal. After getting your perspective and anatomy right, it is THE one thing that will make your line drawings go from good to professional. It’s so simple, yet so effective.
I definitely have to say my visual story-telling ability has improved greatly. Like these characters are portraying the emotion exactly as I want them to.
