I very rarely do drawings like this of people from life; I usually use photographs instead. When I have done guys from life before, their reaction usually hasn’t been all that enthusiastic. This time, though, the guy in question liked the drawing a lot, and I have to say that it wasn’t the worst time I’ve ever had drawing somebody. What happened after might have even been more fun, but I guess there’s little or no artistic purpose to me elaborating on it in this post.
Aight, another boy portrait for the montage in my upcoming issue, if that all goes as planned. Hm. This is a little tough for me, because there’s a whole lot that I feel like saying about this particular boy at the moment, but I think I’m going to force myself into a rare for me (Very rare) display of discretion and not lay out a bunch of things that I’ll probably regret saying in the morning. Hm. Anyway. I will explain, though, as I’ve mentioned previously these drawings are part of a planned segment in a comic that I’m hoping to put together. All this stuff, actually, or at least a lot of it, is meant as part of a bigger picture, or bigger pictures, and longer series that I hope to do. I’m hoping that it will become clear(er) with not too much more time.
And here’s another one of those guy sketches. The general plan at the moment is to post a few more odds and ends like this for the next week or so, and then to start in with a longer storyline to be posted in installments. So stick around!
