Ok so this post is going to be very short I’m afraid, as this week rather got away from me. Also, the below was very nearly a painting of a cup that had once had tea in it due to technical difficulties that required me to restart my computer a couple of times while I stared at the tea I really wanted to drink.
That’s another place traditional media beats digital: paper doesn’t require software updates.
And…yeah this is where I completely give up on the food theme and throw in a monster drawing. Because who doesn’t like those? Terrible people, that’s who.
There is a setting in my brain that defaults to evil dino-birds when I don’t have anything in particular in mind to draw.
I don’t think this is a problem.
When drawing these monsters I do try to aim for a skeleton that’s at least plausible, if not likely. I flirted with the idea of becoming a Bio/medical illustrator in college, and while I didn’t end up pursuing that career the classes I took with that in mind drilled into me the idea that in order to draw convincing figures/objects/spaces you have to understand the underlying structure.
