Re: Pure bliss...

Another fine batch. Those first spare near monochromes pack quite a punch. You have captured the poses well in all of them. The final reclining figures are very successful.

Re: Pure bliss...

Thank you for the generous comments, Harry!
I think my friend did all the work- I just had to get the hand-eye to work together!

Re: Pure bliss...

All very accomplished drawings Bethany but like Harry i find the 3 minute ones more impressive I suppose because you have let the paper work for you.

Re: Pure bliss...

My favourites are the last two Bethany. I think the quick poses work best when the lines are less jerky/broken (if that makes sense) though obviously 3 minutes is not long.

Re: Pure bliss...

Thanks, Nathan!
I know what you mean about the quick ones. I am using the warm colour for the broad gesture- then the dark for emphasis. Need to be speedier!

Great collection! I like the use of 2 colors for the lights and shadows, very attractive to the eye.
