If you’ve been reading my posts here for a while you may recognize – sort of? – the figure above. She’s the “Life Model” I assembled ten years ago. Here are earlier posts about her (with photos):
Are you wondering why she looked the way she did? She lost her hands and hair, and gained a headscarf. At the time I thought she had a sporty vibe…maybe she was on her way to the yacht club to go sailing?
Anyway: I found that photo this weekend, filed with this one:
That’s one of two sketches I did of her. Haaa! You can see how wildly enthusiastic I was about doing it. The hat’s from another of her outfits. I remember thinking that if I put enough clothing and accessories on her she’d be more interesting draw. Too bad that didn’t work. All I actually drew of her was her head, a missed opportunity given the fact that the reason I made her to begin with was to practice drawing bodies.
