| The Little Black Dress
is a random little piece, just to keep myself in practice. I'm
between big projects right now, and I want to keep my art mojo on the
move so I don't get lazy and drop into a slump.
I didn't have any particular piece in mind today, just wanted to work
on something. Curvy women in various states of undress is usually
my default position, so here you have the results. XD The
pose and subject seems simple enough, but I ended up spending a lot
more time hashing out the details on this than I thought I would.
Which is a good thing, because it keeps me interested and more
occupied so I don't get bored with the piece. If you look at the
pencils, you can tell I went back-and-forth on the pose quite a few
I went for lace
underwear because I don't draw fancy details much, even though I had no
rhyme or reason with the pattern. I just drew a bunch of
intersecting curly-q's. The same thing goes for her hair. I
just started penciling in strands and shapes and just tried to make
sense of what I doodled out. The little black dress around her
knees was an afterthought after sketching out the rough pose. I
toyed with the idea of her actually wearing it, but I thought this
would be more playful and fun to draw.
I have to say that I'm really happy with this gal now that she's all
said-and-done. Especially for a piece of art that started out as
a little thing to keep me occupied. ^_^
