Whatever Makes You Happy

Posted Oct 2018

This Client requested that I include a little Cartoony Jungle Animal on each of the Children's Caricatures. She wanted them drawn At the Party. In addition to the Caricature. In Color. And..... Animal? Which ended up causing many of the Compositions to require Bodies also.....

It involved all sorts of extra things to do on each picture. The Guests still want to get their Caricatures quickly. So I just kept draaaaaawing.

I could see why a person might want something like that. It's cute, and it could be fun for a child to relate to something like that. But me ~ It's usually my experience that the Simpler the Picture, with a Statement, drawn with as few lines as needed..... aka the Short Story..... that's what gets the quickest Party Fun Surprises. It felt chancy to switch gears and swing into it when Adult came for their Caricatures. Like an exercise to Alternate Control with Freedom.

Not easy to do. I felt so grateful that it all worked out so well. I drew Almost as many Caricatures as I usually do

Wider Fashion Sketches

Posted Sep 2018

Well blow me away ~ This was Fun.

Today is Wednesday. After midnight, so officially actually Thursday already. And I was just told that Friday's FASHION SKETCH Event will be for Fuller Figured Women.

So I figured that a quick way to check it out would be to go back into the Fashion Sketches that I recently posted on August 29, 2018 ~ to see how I might draw them as Larger Women. This was my First Pass at it. Still much to work on ~ and I figure that they wouldn't be wearing This particualr outfit ~ but oh just thinking about how to do this is So Much Fun! I feel So Interested.

I'll have to see just how far I should go with this stuff. And get my head back into the approach that I was tapping into on August 29th. Because this is the Event that ordered "Not too Cartoony".

still.... just with this first attempt, I'f feeling like I want to try Thicker Legs. Maybe bigger solider hands. Oh so much to do for a Serious Artist
