I am evidently going on a personal odyssey of My own. Line drawings have called to me recently, as they always have, always do and always will. I have gone back to a blast from the past journal I have (literally, I have hundreds of these line drawings. T says thousands, but I think that's an exaggeration.) and am moving forward again on it.
While these two images may seem like a dearth of materials here, they are undergoing transformations as you read these words. Sorry, about MercuryGirl's lips. They look more whited out than silver, tsk.
On MY wish list is a Panasonic digital. But I digress.
DogGirl's face is rendered by using a favourite technique I learned from one of my favorite contemporary artists, Duncan Regehr. In his book "Dragon's Eye" he discusses -- very briefly -- learning to use one line for a single drawing. Yep. You put the pen or pencil or whathaveyou down and you do not pick it up until done.
I have lots of these drawings and it does take a bit of work but it's fun -- and it can be beautiful, weird, extreme, sedate. It's up to you and how far you are willing to take that one unbroken line and yourself.
The next time you see these girls, they will have undergone The EyeCandy Treatment. Let's just hope I haven't undergone theirs. With a name like DogGirl, I'm not quite sure I would be happy.
On a more colourful note, I heard from Teesha Moore, and evidently, I will indeed be goin' to ArtFest '09!
