Inktober 2016: Day Two

This evening I felt like drawing some fashion.  Clothing folds are something I would like to be better at, as well as drawing people beyond just headshots.

Pinterest is often my go-to for inspiration and references.  Interestingly enough, though, the subject today isn’t wearing any of the outfits I found.  The end result, as you can see, was a sort of amalgamation of what I saw.

I don’t often draw women with short hairstyles, but I was inspired by some updos and dress/skirt combos.  This turned into a character from the 1940’s and ‘50’s.  I like to think she’s a down-to-earth, sarcastic journalist or businesswoman.  In this image, I imagined she was halfheartedly contemplating a problem in the office.

Her backstory and design were gradual developments, which I think was both good and bad.  It was good in that I was able to keep going and finish the illustration without being bogged down by my perfectionism.  That said, her proportions are off, since I didn’t really stop to check them while drawing.  Oops.
