I bet you guys thought I forgot about this runner, huh? It’s been almost a week since I last showed you anything from this sketch. Well, to tell you the truth….I was at a place in the drawing that I would rather avoid- Yep the shoes! Ugh!! Didn’t think I could do those shoes justice.
But with everything else that I’m learning about sketching/drawing….Compartmentalize! Meaning, I should break the image down. (As best I can)
When my sketch is done with the graphite portion, I like to outline the darker edges with my Copic 0.05 multi-liner in gray. I like the look that it leaves. It just makes things POP! The trick is…to know what you want to pop.
Here’s our Fitness runner (99% complete). I may have shaded in a bit more around the upper thighs and knee after taking this picture.
And here she is at the point of completion with the outline applied. Just a little more 3D, don’t you think?
I can see my errors:
- Back too broad
- Back leg…knee-to-foot too long.
- Possibly left arm could’ve been a wee-bit longer.
- Winged the hair….haha
- Winged a lot of those darn shoe contours….haha
