New Pic - "Little Angel"
This is the result of me playing around with the way I draw my girls, trying to make them even cuter. I've been reworking the way I draw eyes, while looking at the mouth/nose relationship in regards to head shape and body proportions. I picked a couple of artists I admire greatly (Humberto Ramos & Randy Green) who draw the kinda girls I want to be drawing, and studied exactly what it was about their work that makes them cute.
Anyhow apart from the larger eyes and slightly smaller mouth, I realised that I'd been drawing most of my girls with realistic proportions i.e. 7 - 8 heads high. A lot of Humberto & Randy's girls have much more teenage proportions (5 - 6 heads high), which instantly makes them appear cuter.
So at the end of the day not only did I get a lesson in proportions, I also got to draw an x-rated teenage temptress to boot!!
Oh & here's a close-up version of just her face so you can get an idea of the detail in the linework.
Apologies for the t-shirt, but the Star Wars fanboy came in me had to come out to play..
More cuties soon!!
