Honey and Perscription Drugs


Here's another memory sketch I did recently. We saw this guy coming out of Costcos. Check out the other memory sketches my friends Mark McDonnell and Chad Wood have done over at www.sketchclubeast.blogspot.com. I've included the first quick rough I did, and I felt I wanted to push him a bit more.

cheers

This is great! Thanks for showing the thought process. I like how you reworked the pose. I go to Coscoe all the time, plenty of targets to draw!

you didn't ask but,
i prefer the first sketch. it holds together as a more cohesive whole. the second version has lost any of the elements which unify the design. his face is curves and loose flesh and his body is suddenly all rigid angles. perhaps, in the clean-up drawing, the transition from body to neck needs some more dramatic reiforcement, to make clear the transition of graphic ideas and structurally to support the head.

it would be interesting to hear your thoughts on what motivates the choices you make in the drawings. i'm guessing the first drawing was quick and in the service of that effort to record your initial immediate responses. which for me, rings more true to the subject-the soft curves, the rounded shoulders, a man worn down by time like a stone in the river. you know what i mean? i know that sounds corny but, again it's just an overall unifying idea-at least as far as i can see.

as i said, would be great to hear your thoughts on drawing.

Patrick Morgan said...

John, thanks for the feedback my man.
Well, the dude we saw was wearing really snazzy sharp clothes, so I keept the clothes kinda sharp and clean. His body on the other hand was wearing down so I tried to go after that idea, where his flesh was showing. The guy didn't look worn down. He actually looked like at one he was a pretty hip Mo-Fo. The first one, just weeked a bit common to me at the time, and I just wanted to push it a bit more. But you really had some good sugestions.

cheers,
Patrick
