103



It's probably premature, but yesterday and today's sketches were very free-form and yet came out in a way I was happy with and finally felt like it had a "style" that seemed like mine and not too derivative. We'll see if I can stay loose and keep it up.

The Dude would be grossed out.

Did you use photo reference for this? A lot of your stuff seems like it was drawn from photos (usually because you draw a lot of celebrities, maybe?). If you do, I hope you don't take that as an insult becuase you use it to your advantage, I think. If not, then well done, sir. This is very good.

I certainly looked at pictures of the character but I didn't trace anything here.

I guess I meant reference for the pose she's in more than anything (certainly wasn't accusing you of tracing, but studying the poses and adapting them into your sketches). I dunno what it is about it. Maybe the subtle but acurate foreshortening is making my brain think you were looking at something because it's tricky to pull off? I dunno. The proportions are a bit off, but those legs are just really doing it for me. Forget it. I guess I don't really know what I'm trying to say here. Bleh.
