Illustration Friday: breezy


I enjoyed drawing this sketch a lot, although I think the legs need a bit more work. I wanted more of a perspective on them. I think the main thing is that she's too skinny for her legs. But overall, still happy with the sketch. Also the clump of hair across her chin bothers me; maybe it should have covered her mouth, but with the chin/neck visible. The boots are because I'm obsessed with wearing my boots as often as possible.

Lovely line work, and cut off your critical voice, this one's fine! :)

@Indegene: I will try to get better at not self-critiquing so much. It's not meant to be harsh, more along the lines of training the eye and pen to notice errors and correct them as I draw to get the results I want.

Thank you for leaving comments every week!

Beautiful and delicate! I see nothing wrong with her legs, either. The movement in her hair and skirt are wonderful.

Looks lovely to me too! We are our own worst critics of course!!
