Figure Drawing

Its a narrow line between fantastical creatures drawn at figure drawing and furries.

Figure Drawing

For a long time I was really frustrated with my lack of ability to draw from imagination. I feel most at home drawing from a model. When I get to drawing something purely from my head I have a really hard time. I was always terrible at drawing cartoon characters. I just could never simplify people enough so that I could make them appealing to look at. I have slowly gotten marginally better at this. Turning the figure's from figure drawing is a way for me to practice both drawing from life and drawing from imagination.

Happy Father's Day

To my father, William J Shaw III, on Father's Day. Thanks for being a great dad, you taught me a lot and I couldn't ask for a better father.

Melissa kindly posed for a quick 20 minute drawing/painting. Drawing people that you know is the most difficult because the pressure to get a decent likeness is quite high. I see her every day so I should be able to ballpark it, right? If it looks off its because she's fidgety, thats my excuse anyway ;)
