Dug this out today to decompress a bit. I’m in the process of moving right now to Montreal, QC, so my mind is not interested in working on anything conceptual or heavily technical. Nice flat drawing with no perspective of a sexy dark angel chick is a thumbs-up for me. This is the type of drawing that would be shunned in art school… “WHY!” “What is the feminist discourse behind this!? OBJECTIFICATION!” Let me put it this way: It’s not about any of that, so we’re not getting into it. And why should I draw this? How about WHY NOT? I have some art-school angst that needs to be purged from my soul.
This is the current state of affairs with this drawing. I thought up of a background because I’m not the type of artist to leave things so badly unresolved; she has to be stroking something! I think I had a different idea when I started, but that was a while ago, and I’ve definitely forgotten what that idea was. I think it was as bad as her stroking a wall (WTF?). I don’t think the anatomy and pose worked out like what my illogical mind imagined anyway, so here is the start of a background as it reflects the mood and colour scheme of the picture. I think I started with something dark that is turning light.
