Hey all! In looking at my work recently, I’ve noticed that one thing I could use improvement on is my drapery. So I thought, what better way to practice than to draw a wedding dress! So, here is Ahnka in a wedding dress.:)
This week, my husband, Rich, made a sketchblog post where he talks about sometimes going overboard on sketches for his blog. This week he posted the pencils only, what he usually inks over. So now I’m feeling inspired, and thought that this week, just for fun, I would post both the finished product and the original pencils. I think the sketch had something nice that the final draft loses. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think the finished work is poor in any way. But anyone who does a lot of sketching tends to notice drawings lose some of the spontaneity and “life” that they had as rough pencils. One of these days, I’ll figure out how to keep that from happening.
Anyhow, enough talking! Here are the drawings! I also drew the back of the dress, but didn’t take it to inks. Enjoy!
