Keeping it real

Keeping it real

Sometimes a drawing doesn't work the first time out. Developing a pose until you are satisfied and the darn thing looks right, takes patience and "eye". The one thing I really like about work in analog and digital, is being able to tweak a drawing digitally. In the days of old, making 5 or ten xerox copies to change size, redraw, was very painstaking. It worked but it took work. Tweaking an analog drawing can really help push the pose.

Some of my digital process involves cutting and transforming certain body parts to achieve my goal.  I can push perspective, clean up small mistakes (without re-inking) and get nearly any desired effect.  It sometimes helps to get the drawing closer to finish too.  By tweaking a final ink (as in the last frame of the foot)  I can push one more element and then move onto color.LonghairSKETCH_devSM
