Barbarella - Queen of the Galaxy


Okay - the colors are done.  Funny - for months now I've been almost exclusively working on figure drawing fundamentals - and somehow my coloring seems to have gotten better.  Odd. I'll never figure out this art thing. :)

  1. Hey, Ark. Figure drawing improves all aspects of art--you'll even draw better dragons by drawing people! Here's a secret I learned though: figure SCULPTING improves drawing skills much better and easier than figure drawing. 3d greatly increases abilities with 2d (and I'm not talking about CGI). I use some cheap Crayola clay and reuse it over and over again. It also strengthens the muscles in the hands over time, as long as you don't overdo it. I hope your hand injuries are much better now. -Reifyn

    1. Thanks Reifyn. You know, I have a wads of clay of various kinds jut sitting on the craft shelf. It's been a while. I'll have to give it a shot.

  2. I still think you and I would make a kick-ass webcomic team -- me writing, you drawing.

    2. Yeah... that's the problem... I currently have no idea what would make a good webcomic. :(
