In my ongoing quest to take my illustrations to the next level, I’ve been spending some time going back to basics.  Meet…

The Stick Figure!

(You’d be surprised just how challenging drawing the stick figure can actually be!)

Of course, the next step is to flesh out the body…but with only a minimum of details.

(As you can see, I overdid it on this one, but I think you will still get the idea.)

What’s next?  A hell of a lot more practice, for one.  Or, as one of my violin teachers used to say…hours of fun!

    How fun! I’ve been focusing on the basics of faces the past few months. My goal has been to fill a sketchbook of face practice. After that I plan on doing a sketchbook of figures 🙂
