Seed Girls

 

Being able to draw people is something I have always admired in those who do it well. I fall in and out of love with the idea of wanting to get better at rendering a human image. I’m not sure if it’s because it doesn’t come easy to me so I try for a bit and then take my version of the lazy way out and switch back to plants or maybe it’s the eyes. Window’s to the soul and all. What’s the first thing we all look at? The eyes. They give away so much, or in some cases, nothing at all.

Fall into love I am right now with this idea of the Seed Girls. Brace yourself. You’re about to get a glimpse into the way my mind meanders about before it settles on an idea. ๐Ÿ™‚ This whole concept started with ornate frames and foliage believe it or not. I was sketching ideas for some of my Society of Curious Creatures characters. Somewhere in the mashing of flora and foliage came out the thought what would the tiniest parts of some of these plants look like blown up to life size? which lead to me being interested in paper marbling (!?) and then somehow a combination of all these random pieces settled out to what I am now calling the Seed Girls. Yeah not sure how I connected those dots either.

I’m still refining the idea of where I think these girls come from and what they are all about but for now they are happy just being little portraits. Quiet reflections on inky surfaces.

 

For a print of one of these ladies check out my Society 6 store.ย If prints aren’t your thing the store has lots of other products to choose from.

    Getting better at drawing people needs a looot of studies from real life ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it’s mostly the proportions of the faces… on the other hand your style is so unique, I really love it ๐Ÿ˜„

    • I totally agree Mona! I’m more interested in exactly that. Proportions and likenesses. Realism isn’t my end goal. I do think that even though Realism isn’t my end goal there is a lot of value in life studies. Thanks for the compliment. ๐Ÿ™‚
