Oh wow! thank you very very much! Your gallery is quite awesome, youself!
Sure! Feel free! And thank you!
Here’s an awesome little piece of history:
Archaeologists in the Burnt City have discovered what appears to be an ancient prosthetic eye. What makes this discovery exceptionally awesome is the striking description of how the owner and her false eye would have appeared while she was still alive and blinking:
[The eye] has a hemispherical form and a diameter of just over 2.5 cm (1 inch). It consists of very light material, probably bitumen paste. The surface of the artificial eye is covered with a thin layer of gold, engraved with a central circle (representing the iris) and gold lines patterned like sun rays. The female remains found with the artificial eye was 1.82 m tall (6 feet), much taller than ordinary women of her time. On both sides of the eye are drilled tiny holes, through which a golden thread could hold the eyeball in place. Since microscopic research has shown that the eye socket showed clear imprints of the golden thread, the eyeball must have been worn during her lifetime. The woman’s skeleton has been dated to between 2900 and 2800 BCE.
So she was an extraordinarily tall woman walking around wearing an engraved golden eye patterned with rays like a tiny sun. What an awesome sight that must have been.
SOMEONE DRAW HER PLEASE
Hey guys! This is Trixy!
I decided to sketch out a headspin for her too!
I’m not entirely pleased with how she came out but at least you get a general gist of what I’m going for. In reality she will be quite small, so her head/hair will be a tad bit wider. Regardless, here she is!!
I decided to sketch out a headspin bust of Dax (my main character) from my upcoming webcomic to get an idea of what he looks like from each angle.
Didn’t have any time to do anything more detailed… but I can’t help myself with FRobin…..
SO HAPPY HALLOWEEN TUMBLR!!!!!
So has anyone else been watching AHS: Coven?
My advice is to DEEPLY study the human body. Practice figure drawing, take classes on it, don’t be afraid to draw the body clothed and unclothed. Don’t be afraid to trace, either.
Tracing for practice is not art theft!
First rule of figure drawing is to know the rules before you break them.
