Hello, I have been in the visual arts field since 1989. These drawings and sketches are what I do. They are a snapshot in time of what I am trying to express or resolve. Sometimes the expression is incomplete until I can uncover a better solution.
I hope you enjoy what you see. I have had a good time growing along with the drawings.
new session, close up of what I have done so far. The post after this will be of the entire image to this point. As far as how I work, I usually block in bits that I know will be shadow or darker areas to be carved out, then tool them with either a rake tool or a single spade shaped tool following the motion of the cloth or how a leaf would grow from it's stem. Then I apply a highlight with a spade tool or apply shadow with an ink pen. Hope this helps. -db
