Sarong Proportions

Posted by Mark in Mark's Sketchbook

,

Another attempt at figure drawing; hopefully this is just another example of something I can laugh at in a few months. My drawing class starts tomorrow.

The subject is formerly very hot, now very dead Dorothy Lamour. Forgive the poor facial likeness; sketching with a blunt piece of charcoal doesn’t really lend itself to details. Don’t forgive the fact that her legs are about half as long as they should be; one of my worst habits is compressing things as I get close to the edge of the paper. I do that with writing, too.
