Far East Facetasm


Artists fall into ruts, blocks and bad habits. We do everything to get out of them once we realize we have fallen. Changing the way we draw, using new materials, looking at new things and the best, looking at life, or uh,TV. Yep that's right TV. I often use TV to do cheap life drawing(I say cheap because the brain is doing a 2D to 2D translation which is alot easier than doing a 3D to 2D translation)I was watching a neat little movie with some amazing faces and couldn't resist. I love faces! Sometimes you can see a persons whole story as it is written on there face. And their is beauty in it all.There is a Japanese story I would like to tell someday but it's far too soon to actually tell it. So as a visual person I have to draw my way through it.

Very cool faces. I've got pages and pages of faces myself. Fun to draw, but if I do it too much, I start having trouble attaching them to bodies when the time comes to start drawing full figures.

I look forward to some day seeing this japanese story!

Beautiful, Bconn. "Artists fall into ruts, blocks and bad habits." Yep. I'm coming out of hibernation... And you're a constant source of inspiration!
