It’s time to move onto another part of this work.
The first figure is started, (though in placement on the work, it will be the second figure…) BUT i shall have to rip out that entire foot as it is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too heavily worked. That’s where i started, and of course as i worked through, found the rhythm and look, and started enjoying myself, that bulky, excessive, cumbrous, pulchritudinous spog really started bothering me.
I could do the lazy thing as some artists are wont to do, when they can’t draw the appendages at the end of the arms and legs.and hide it behind something. You know, all those figures standing in piles of hay, apparently holding *something* behind their backs…..
Nah. Rip it out, though it’s going to be a pain in the Bazotski to rework so the whole thing doesn’t fall apart. A delicate clat is going to be needed.
