Archer revisited. Barbara Bradley

( My energy in the olden days when my kids were small amazes me when I reflect on it... last minutes sewing of pearls on the bride doll's dress at Midnight Christmas eve, etc. I remember doing three more sketches for a Borden's billboard before heading to the hospital after my water broke. ) Produce while you've got the steam." Barbara, I will cherish these words forever. Your support, enthusiasm, your generosity lifts me.

I bought her book on line: Drawing People How to portray the clothed figure, by Barbara Bradley. Check it out! A must for your figure drawing library.

I had done a comp of one in an earlier post and came back to it. Mentor Barbara Bradley suggested i plant that foot; sorry Barbara; i will when i get some time! Holidays coming up, lots of freelance, multitasking like a monkey, no time to paint horses or sketch for LeoPardine! Meager offerings, I know. (anguished scream right here)

bottom drawing, a quick concept. Love the body calligraphy, this one needs to be finished. Archers have such wonderful gestures; must investigate more...

These sketches look great. Will this character have a part in your LeoPardine story?

Beautiful flowing pencil work, you've got a great hand.

thanks, v!

She is actually a part of another story i have in mind. This thanksgiving i ran into someone who might be able to help me write a girl and her dragon story! I would like to try my hand at story boarding something for my own!
