A couple of days after drawing Riki Lindhome, from a promotional photograph from Another Period on Comedy Central, I decided I really should draw the other lovely lady in that same picture. Natasha Leggero is the other half of the duo behind the television show. I am admittedly less familiar overall with her work, but she routinely kills it in the Comedy Central Roasts, so I have been following her career more of late. As I said in my earlier blog post, I encourage everyone to check out these ladies’ show.
In the original photograph, the two ladies are sitting side-by-side on a couch. I honestly had very little interest in drawing the couch… which is why I ended up drawing each lady individually. I suppose I could at some point work them back into a single drawing but I needed more practice with drawing people than I did drawing stuff, so the women were of far more interest to me than anything else in the photograph.
As I was working on this one, I realized that I had learned a bit just from having done the drawing of Riki a couple of days earlier. I think I got the skin tone even better for Natasha than I did for Riki, but think I still need to work on hair and clothing a bit more. The period costumes both ladies were wearing actually had lots of nice folds and wrinkles and curves which definitely made for good practice. I’m most pleased that though these do not look like photo-realistic drawings of women, you can easily identify who the subjects are.
