50 figures – 6/50

I’ve been pondering why I find it so much harder to produce something I like in art class compared to at home. Sure I use photos at home so there’s that whole thing about it already having been 2d’d, but I have always felt that’s not quite all there is to it.

I might have hit on it today when I tried the pose below. I found it just as hard as art class – and I realised it’s not a standing pose. When choosing photos, I nearly always choose a standing pose. I’m guessing I’m more familiar with that and so can be more lazy with my observations. Something to think about?

This was a quick sketch, and I can see I’ve over exaggerated the back, and her lower half is too small. And it has a slightly cartoon feel to the face. Not my best effort! But an effort all the same…
