This week over at Ten Paces and Draw our theme was Pretty Ladies. I drew this girl getting ready to drop it like it's hot, which I was pretty stoked on
and then Justin Volz took it to final to create this
which looks absolutely fantastic. Getting involved with this swap blog has been really interesting in a whole bunch of ways. It's really cool to see what people do with my work, what they leave in what they take out. And I think this particular one was awesome because it's so different from my sketch, but the feeling is still there. I like how sophisticated it looks. Somehow so much more grown up than mine. And yet, that's also kind of what I miss when looking at it...that awkwardness and goofiness that I always bring to the table without even thinking about it. So I thought I'd give it a whack, to practice some coloring of my own. Here's mine:
I still can't say that I like coloring digitally better than painting, not even a little bit. But it is pretty fun sometimes anyway.
