I think I’m finally learning how to draw standing characters! It’s like I suddenly see something I’ve been missing for so many years. Usually my standing and walking characters look so stale and lifeless, all twisted and unnatural, but now…Looking at my old drawing it seems like I didn’t know stuff like how to place the feet, the weight of the hip, starting with the head when drawing a standing character, not applying perspective etc.
Last night I lay in the sofa to 03 AM, with windows open, just drawing, watching some GOT and listening to the black birds singing in the summer night. Life is pretty good right now in other words. It’s summer, I hosted a nice party last Friday, I’m healthy, I have friends, a nice apartment and my own company. I know life will not always be this nice to me, and I will probably somewhere in the future be miserable and old and sick with some strange disease, living in tent in the woods with crazy, inbred cats…but tight now everything is great. To my future self: remember this time of your life. OK, that’s enough bla bla for one post. Need to buy myself a new sketchbook, just finished this one.
Also, I finished my 4th album of images for The Art Project on Facebook. The albums can be found here if you want to have a look (they´re public):
