It’s Good… Then It’s Not So Good…

Yesterday I decided to sketch an OC that was floating in my head and kinda needed to be down on paper. Since I have a thing for drawing slightly punky chicks with weird haircuts and a bad sense of style, I drew this gal:

trixie kicker concept 01I had a blast drawing it, and was really happy with the final product; drawing full bodied sketches is something I’ve neglected of late (I’m becoming more comfortable with head/shoulder images, as I can draw now without the guidelines as much, so I have a bad habit of sticking with what I can do, rather than working on what I can’t do).

So today I decide: let’s draw some more full-bodied stuff. Let’s experiment, try some poses. So I think, okay, I’ll draw the above girl but with her arms folded. I got as far as the rough sketch stage, and it kind of turned out like this:

Something to work on, I guess. A New Year’s Resolution for my arty skills, as it were.

(I think I earn some points for the bunny slippers, no?)
