dessin: Arthur et Chat



another one done. This time there were issues with the Wacom tablet. Ever since updating to Yosemite with the new computer Wacom has released a series of worthless updates to the tablet drivers. In the end I uninstalled it and installed my 80$ Monoprice tablet I use for travelling. Works perfectly. Wacom needs to pay more attention to these things with tablets threatening to take over the market they were king of for so many years and with cheaper tablets doing almost as good a job.

Shirt, jeans overalls, cat fur an hair this one has a lot of things that are challenging to draw for me. I kept away from using greyscale shading on much of the ink work as I wanted it to be more traditional looking and adding a little gray shadow here and there can hide a thousands sins and I'd rather just avoid the sins... sometimes.   :)

Reminds me a lot of your old pen and ink work. Well done! Glad you've had time to really reach out and draw some more.

I really tried to keep it in the "old school" style this time. The hair is done pretty much in the same technique I used in the stuff you remember. Started another acrobat drawing yesterday and had a friend come by to pose for my long overdue (in my mind) series of nude yoga drawings. I did 3 and then ran out of references and no one wants to pose for new ones!
