More Dirk

Playing around again. I don't normally try to do tonal renders traditionally because they frighten me and ruin drawings. But ... omlettes and eggs and so forth I suppose. Also my perspective isn't the hottest.

Well I've had a lovely weekend doing virtually nothing but some light errands, cartoon watching and playing around with markers and pencils. It was good to not be near the monitor for a while doing these. *relaxed sigh*

I did two sketches of this and there's definitely something I lost from the very first drawing and then obliterated further in the painting. I think it's probably all the lumpiness whereas the original sketch was a slightly more graphic/streamlined sort of design. Also I was trying to make a real point out of not achieving the colours through using layers and layers of meters and overlays but in the end it had to be done to save it.

Also I should have spent more time with the composition to make the scenario clearer. But... you know, live and learn. Oh hmm. The position of that femur was also way better flipped.
