Meh 002

So there's this piece I did a long time ago.

I recently re-did the elven girl thingy so I thought I'd give this one another go.

But I had foregone the fact that the piece was a flawed concept to begin with. I tried spicing up the piece as I saw fit, but I couldn't help but get bored out of my mind drawing something I didn't find interesting.

So the piece stops here.

This, by the way, was 40 days ago. I have not touched it since. Aesthetically it looks alright, but conceptually, it's just a girl drawn from low angle perspective. The whole piece was about putting my drawing skill to the test (specifically, drawing extreme angles), and as soon as I felt that I was doing it sufficiently enough, I lost all the reason to continue drawing and spending (and wasting) time on putting details on it. Will it look good if I finished it? Probably. Does its artistic merit do justice to possible time and effort that it will require to finish? Nah. And Meh 002.

Drawing monotone is always an enjoyable experience. You get to fully explore forms and spaces without the distraction and the responsibility of color painting. It's kind of like what sketching is to lineart.

Anyways, I haven't been uploading frequently and for obvious reasons. I will probably have another timelapse up soon.

That is all.
