Shallow Depth of Feel by kelch12 Shallow Depth of Feel by kelch12
Here is my first full body figure drawing. I love the different contrast in textures and the pose of the model. It was love at first sight, and I decided to make a drawing of it.

I felt like my hard work has been paid off so far. I know it's not perfect and there's always room for improvement. At the same time, I don't want to linger on the same drawing forever. Here is what I came up with with nearly a month of restless nights (besides my day job.)

I named this "Shallow Depth of Feel." It's my pun of the phrase "shallow depth of field." In photography, it's the contrast between focus and out-of-focus objects within the same image so the main subject is emphasize. I use "FEEL" because there is emotion in it. Ironically, it's not that "shallow."

What do you think? Leave me a comment or favorite/like it if you like. Thanks for watching!

Pencil: 4H, 2H, HB, 2B, & 4B

Yes, it did require patient. Knowing what I know now, I would have done it in another way. Good shading practice nonetheless.

I think that's a big step forward. I just feel like I'm stagnant, not improving much at all recently...trying to find ways how to improve, and how to see whether there's improvement :D

Thanks. If you are in a plateau, go see something different. It could be a different movie or different book. You might need just one more new idea for your next break through.
