Must sketch! 9.21.09

I like to apologize to the contributing artists for the reference photo I selected. It is very blurry, but I think it's such an awesome pose it was worth the eye strain.




Reference is from sitara-leotastock:

This continues to be so exciting to see everyone's drawings.

I like how you did that little box thing Erika, smart! And is that white pencil highlights or is it just some cool thing that happened when you shaded dark like that?

Dean, very cool style, I really dig the shading even though the fabric looks a little less cloth like.

Did you guys think this one was a bit tough from the blurriness?

No, nothing special with the highlights, I used the kneaded eraser to clean it up a bit. I had a hard time figuring out the hands and neck area because of the blurriness.

Lina, looking at Dean's sketch, I think the legs are too short on yours and mine.
