IMG_8301That’s all the oldies for now. I kind of really like the background in this one… And it’s actually much more even than here: the weird dark shapes and lines are actually… the reflection of my head and shelves on the glass covering the picture…! (eyeroll…)

Has anyone noticed how it’s often much easier to draw human figures in non-typical positions or perspectives? I find when that’s the case my drawings tend to be much better. I think because when I see a person in a position that’s not too normal I actually make the effort to LOOK, and don’t allow my brain to sort of fill in the blanks basing on the assumptions (“of COURSE I know what a sitting person looks like, I don’t need to watch that close!”). Any thoughts?
