This is a brand new adventure in alliteration for me! Last week it was h-words; this week, it’s c-words.
…maybe I should rephrase that.
Anyway, you guys might remember my post last week about Dr. Sketchy’s in WRJ. I love figure drawing (have I mentioned that before, maybe?) and had a blast at the last one, so when I found out they needed a poster for the next event, I was all over it. Here’s the design I came up with:
Overall, I’m pretty happy with how it came out. It was fun to come up with so many poses, and this is pretty much the first drawing of a car that I feel came out well. Maybe it’s the model? I guess all my comics will have to star VW Beetles from now on. It was a challenge to get the colors just right–for the figures to really read as clowns, their outfits had to strike this strange balance between complimentary and clashing colors. If the colors look too coordinated, they look too neat to be clowns. I really wish I’d had time to do shading for all the figures, but it’s getting down to thesis crunch time so I couldn’t justify spending another whole day on it.
No matter how I feel about the poster, though, I am super excited that Dr. Sketchy’s is gonna be a regular fixture in town this semester! If you guys have any opportunity to stop by on Mar. 30th, you absolutely should. The models are great, the drawing is fun, and the giveaways are an awesome bonus. (Last time, they gave out T-shirts, a bottle of wine, and a sketchbook and pencil set, among other things.) You can order tickets in advance here. I’ll be there for sure–will you?
