This Will Only Hurt a Bit ...

I haven't posted any of Amanda's artwork in awhile but she was rather pleased with the last piece she did so I told her I'd toss it on my blog being that she is absolutely horrible at posting on her own blog - just like she's absolutely horrible at locating the dirty clothes hamper and chooses the floor instead! She seems to think she has no knack for writing and doesn't like to do it but I'd like to beg to differ on that one however - as her mother - what do I know? Exactly!

Anyhow, this latest drawing is one that she did from a picture of Curtis and Erik - the two guys who make up her current favorite band Creature Feature -

Curtis is the tall one inflicting pain on Erik, the one with the retractor stuck in his mouth! If you'd like to take a look at the original picture that she based the drawing on please feel free to click here.

I'm none too savvy when it comes to drawings and the like but I believe she said she did this one using a grid method where she divided the original picture into 16 blocks and then went from there. It's probably too much like math for me to understand but suffice it to say I think she did a pretty good job, I especially like the shading and the feeling that you're looking down.

My only contribution to this whole project was when I asked her the name of the picture and she said "I dunno" so I suggested "This will only hurt a bit" - somehow it seemed appropriate!

  12. That grid method allows you to maintain perspective particularly when going from a smaller to larger or larger to smaller image. She is really developing into a wonderful artist.
