  • Those are some fine, detailed, and very expressive drawings you have here 🙂 Drawing humans must be one of the hardest thing to do, I think. Nice 🙂

    • Thanks Alunaria! I guess it’s different for everyone, but the hardest thing for me is drawing backgrounds and scenery. The vast majority of my sketches have either minimal or no background around the subjects, mostly because I’m just not that good at it. I should probably work at that, to be honest. Practice might help!

      Me and scenery are sort of a chicken and egg thing, I think. Do I avoid backgrounds because I’m not good at them, or am I not good at backgrounds because I never practice at them?

      • Oooh, ok. I did not think of backgrounds as “missing” in your drawings at all, quite the opposite.

        Well maybe a few lines here and there would bring more depth to the whole thing, but they can also distract our eye from the focus, if one can say that.

        Maybe one time one could start on a few background, and keep at it, without adding anything else in the foreground 🙂 That way, you won’t risk anything and it might be easier, since you wouldn’t have to “tailor” the background to the motive in question, if that makes sense. 🙂

      • Ahhhh, you mean work out some background sketches without any specific human subject, that way I could get some practice? That’s a pretty good idea! Maybe I could get more comfortable through repetition, since I have such sparse experience with it


      • Hmmmm…it looks like I have an unfinished thought here. I started a new paragraph with “I”…but I have no idea what I was intending on saying. I hope it wasn’t important!

  • Deference to article author , some good entropy. “If you don’t leap, you’ll never know what it’s like to fly.” by Guy Finley.

    • Isn’t putting pencil marks into the shape of a person pretty much the opposite of entropy? I don’t really understand your comment, but thanks for checking out the blog.
