Poison Ivy

Ivy    12 " x 16 " Graphite
I feel bad calling this my art because I copied it from a Terry Dodson sketch of a statue concept.

I did graph it out, so I was basically drafting his sketch. I would call it cheating.

I find it very difficult to sit down and just draw from my own mind most of the time. I can draw other people's characters without hesitation, but it's an exercise in frustration to try to draw an original.

I think this is because I have so many artists that I admire with vastly differing techniques that it has become jumbled for me, making it very challenging to have a style of my own. The ACEO's I've been posting are as close as it gets to freeform. It's still someone else's character, though.

  1. Great blog. Don't feel bad as Pacaso said, " I don't copy I steal". In the sence he made it his interpretation. Great art work. Best wishes and greetings from Australia.
