Something different


here's a little something i've been working on the last two days, for the latest Drawing jam over at Drawingboard.org. This month's subject is whatsherface from the Show "Heroes" it's unfortunate that this was not a caricature jam, because she makes for a very good caricature, a little of which i injected into this drawing.

as you may know, i am a fan of simplicity, and have been working to inject it, to use the same phrase as the last paragraph, into my art. For the most part i've been doing this with line , or in most cases the lack there of. As i said, this is something different, it's an attempt to achieve a certain simplicity with shapes and color. Something i hadn't tried yet.

i think this worked out pretty well, there are a few things that i could fix up, but overall i'm happy with this experiment in simplicity. I really want to use this in my caricatures, and finding a way to make it work with just faces should be a fun challenge.
