This has sparked me to take on requests for the week. This means I get full say over what happens with the work, and the person requesting doesn't get a free print - but they are the inspiration for the art. It is quite a fun little project, and helps me explore body types and figures, a topic I haven't visited for a while.
Here are some close-ups. I think I have finally developed a drawing technique I'm happy with. I was never happy with clean lines and it took me ages to ink; but this is more of my natural hand, and I'm drawing with a stylus as I would a pencil. The lines feel less stiff, and more...me. It's definitely given me hope for the year ahead!
