Pippi and Poster
This guy's name is Avi, I think. He is sitting in an alley, but I am too lazy to draw in the brick wall. I did a lot of underdrawing and erasing for this one. First I sketched out some ideas of him sitting in a box, looking up at the poster. Then I decided it was too hard, and decided on a triangular shape for his sitting position, with his nose pointing at the poster to get your eye to follow. This guy's face is hard to draw because his bushy eyebrows tend to get mixed up into his messy hair. I need to remind myself that people tend to have foreheads.
This is Pippi. She probably looks nothing like this.
I started this blog while trying to teach myself how to draw and hoping to find a professional artist to mentor under. Then I decided I needed to go to school. Now I'm about to graduate with a degree in graphic design and go on to a B.S. in fine art.
