You know what I learnt (besides sketching is faster in Photoshop)? Drawing concern ain’t easy, mostly because you kind of need two characters: one to throw a pity party and another person to attend said party.

Concern. I could have sketched a lot of politicians for this one. Or celebrity fathers.

Exhaustion – now that’s something that comes easily! Drawing these poses was just about channelling my time at University and Japanese train commuters falling asleep while standing up. I have to say, even though I chose the first pose, I’m particularly fond of pose 3 slamming his face into the step:

Probably sketched from life. My life. Around 2pm in the afternoon.

No joke, that was a pose based on an image of a polar bear. HA!

Drawing balance was definitely the hardest to reference yourself. Normally I like to try a pose out myself so I understand where the body feels pressure and weight. Unfortunately I’m no Yogi or ballerina. In fact, when I tracked my Center of Gravity on Wii Fit once, the image it drew looked like a Pollock painting.

Enter Google Images!

Ahhhh balance. 'Karate Kid' at sunset anyone?

Next time I post about emotions, it’ll be for my final renders!

That, or I’ll have watched ‘Atonement’ and need to throw a pity party on the internet. You’re all invited.
