has this wonderful mentorship assignments that he gives out periodically for his new book.
This one included taking his character Ellie the angel [link]
and getting her into a pose based on photo reference of her daughter Lexie. [link]
Unfortunately for me, I mixed up the deadline turn in but I'm uploading it anyway.
I learned a lot from this assignment. Particularly the priceless lesson that the more you draw a character the easier it becomes. Obviously, but now I've experienced it in flesh and bone. I also learned some of proportions and it threw in sharp relief that I need so much more practice.
I also apologize to *tombancroft
for dessecrating her character. She's the cutest thing but I still couldn't get her right. Well, I guess it's more practice for me.
