Illustration FRiday: Unbalanced

Sorry, I've been so busy, I couldn't balance my art hobby with other fun stuff!

One idea that came to mind for this topic was California's octomom. Her pregnant would be the epitome of unbalanced, physically and mentally. But I refuse to draw her and waste effort on her notoriety!

So, this is a sketch from last Friday's Dr. Sketchy's. I figured that if you were to run into this lady on the street, with her umbrella and goggles now that it's wintry, you might just think she's a little off... She's cool to sketch though.

  12. If not the umbrella and the goggles, than maybe just the fact that she's out in the nude =P Come to think of it I remember using an umbrella in mid-October when we were hit by some nasty snowy slush (no goggles though).

  13. There is this guy in Philadelphia who often walk(very slow) on the street, shirt-less and wearing a humongous head phone. Next time I will make a point to ask if he can pose for me :)

  14. Nice work, yes many pose models are a tad odd, but of course we artists are not a normal group of folk either ;).
