So, I learned quite a bit when I did my Ryan Reynolds drawing earlier this year. I thought it was about time to put some of that into practice again, and see if I can continue to improve skills in drawing real people. It’s always a bit of an internal struggle to decide what, or in this case who, to draw at any given moment. I draw inspiration from television, the Internet, dreams, or whatever happens to pop into my head.
If you are a longtime follower of my blog, the choice to draw Riki Lindhome should come as no huge surprise to anyone. I’ve worked her name into quite a few comic strips over the past year. She’s pretty, and funny, hey that’s pretty funny right there! 🙂 She has a new show right now on Comedy Central, called Another Period. I encourage everyone to check it out. This illustration of her comes straight from a promotional photograph for the show.
I think I’ve improved quite a bit in skin tone and general shading. I could stand some improvement on clothing folds and wrinkles… and I would like to be able to do a little better with hair. Overall I am quite happy with this one, and feel like it does show definite improvement in my work. I realized after the fact that the way I drew her here, Riki Lindhome looks a bit like Snow White. I think it’s the color choices I made that unintentionally led to the resemblance.
