so... i've gotten a few requests in the past to post about how i work. The following is a work in progress? I put a question mark because i'm not sure if i'm THERE yet with the husband... he's a difficult one to capture. anywho... i'm posting my progress here for you to judge me. that's right.. JUDGE.. jerks. step 1: look at my subjects... all angles all pictures i can possibly find...(facebook usually)
step 2: sketch out something i like... (this includes many sketches but i'm only posting one because i always delete these as i do them because looking at the bad ones annoys me, ha)
step 3: color...
step 4: yes... this is an actual step that without a doubt occurs on almost ALL drawings... i hate something about it, something got lost in translation from sketch to painting and i wanna stab broken bottles into my computer screen. it's healthy, i promise. lucky for this couple... it only happened once... it usually happens on average about 4-5 times.
step 5: rework drawing... in this case, start completely over because i hate the way the guy looks and the girl, while super cute, won't match the guy EVER to save my life.
step 6: color again... this time... MUCH more successful yet i still don't think i captured the guy.. he is a particularly DIFFICULT subject. (punching him in the arm) don't worry.. it's cool. i know him ;)
step 7: analyze my drawing the next day for future revisions. cuz i need fresh eyes.
twill see where this one goes...
