I was going to use this as a t-shirt design, but I couldn't get it to look good enough. The rough sketch had a lot of promise (as well as it's fair share of bad proportions) but the clean up process defeated me yet again. I gave up and threw a gradient and some circles in the background.
It's been so long since I drew from life and it clearly shows in the hokey anatomy. I've been faking it for too long and I think I'm going to take some life drawing classes once work is over. It's been ages since I actually sat down at my drawing board at home (as opposed to on a train) and actually drew something not work related. I've been finding time after work and on weekends to just get used to drawing again. Drawing is really something you (meaning I) have to do everyday to not regress.
