Sock December 21, 2015 Author Share December 21, 2015 Earlier in the thread, I mentioned that Sheryl wanted me to draw an image of her with her school dress on, using the "bowling pin" drawing I did of her as a base. The above is a sketch of said image. I wanted to get more of Sheryl's personality in to the drawing, as I felt the last one was pretty lacking on that front (Not surprising, given the purpose of that scribble). So while I still used that drawing as a base, I changed up the way it was posed, and her expression on it. I still think it need some heavy edits before I run it through Inkscape, though. Update: I tweaked the sketch a bit more, mainly in the face area, and I think it was the one place that was bugging me the most. I lowered the eyes and brought them in a little more, and I think it results in a better look. Update: 12.24.2015 I'm continuing work on the piece, and have come to a point where I'm satisfied enough that I can start vectoring it. The big issue for me were the arms. While there was a nice deal of emotion in the gesture, I could not deny the fact that it didn't look right to me. I found that the arms were too short for the position it was in, and that the thumbs would not be showing at that angle. The face was something that I actually did really like about the previous edition. While I thought it would be not to have Sheryl's eyes completely open while drawing, I see that in comparing the two drawings, come emotion was lost with the change. I do like both version, though, and will likely make and edit with both types of faces. Peace Sock Cottonwell's Sketchbook, Journal, and Ask thread.
