Here’s the prequel to the “sling” drawing. To be completely accurate, I’d have had to draw asphalt along the baseline and a LOT more garbage. But I’ve captured the first baseman pretty well, that jerk.
I feel like I’m limping to the finish as Inktober winds down.
Last Christmas Lisa bought me a new coat, which I desperately needed. It’s a Prana Bronson Jacket, and I [heart] it. When I went online to find a picture of it to refer to for this drawing (because heaven forbid I get up and walk to the closet), I was stunned to find almost NONE were available. I guess Prana has moved on.
Here we once again have the typical dark lines I always use to represent blue jeans, which is just about the only thing my characters wear. The problem is what to do when I need to make ANOTHER piece of clothing dark. The jacket here is supposed to be dark-ish green. As with the foreground/background issue with the “dark” drawing, I’m not thrilled with the result. And what was I thinking with the stippling?
I was away this past weekend, so I need to play a little Inktober catch up.
I’ve never been great with shadows and darkness, so I figured I’d try to work on that. Not sure what I think of the results. The flashlight beam looks like it could be a road or path. And the perpendicular foreground and background lines are distracting. Maybe I should have thrown a darkened tree or two in the background.
