Just a brief glimpse at the skeleton of a little drawing...

sometimes the skeleton of a drawing is so confusingly strange that it is especially fun to sink the eyes into. Remember the Bruklynn guy? (Click on that “remix” link under the drawing…) Yeah, like that. Whenever I get to draw in Illustrator, it is great to take a look at the skeleton of things, after the drawing is done… Some of the drawings look just somehow interesting…
or something…


that's wonderful. do you follow a process? you look like you follow a process. is that drawn into Illustrator? do you use a tablet? do you work from sketches/photographs/minds eye? could you share how you work up an idea, the path to your finished picture? please? *cherry on top*

Well, Michelle, the process is very different for different drawings. The skeleton here is for a drawing that was made using a tablet and illustrator on my mac.
This particular picture is also loosely based on a photograph.
Most of my free work is created without any previous sketches. I just follow simple rules I set... the complex drawings are really recordings of that process. They are very pure in that sense.
they are drawn from the bottom up... the image above is drawn more from the top down... which works in some cases... : )
