Girls of Summer Solstice
I've been working on an assignment that involves drawing
a lot of girl characters, which is unusual for me. On my own
time, I have been using various styles and techniques
to trick myself into finding a way to draw female figures.
On close inspection, my anatomy probably doesn't
quite hold up.
Though I've never been a big anime fan, I
have played around with what I call "anime avatar"
proportions, which are more compact. It's tricky, but
it's also a kind of short hand for blocking things in.
There's also an old 1940's comic called SILLY MILLY,
which has a kind of Art Deco stylization, with very
cute proportions on a young woman protagonist.
The artist was named Stan MacGovern.
I'm not sure who this little butt kicker is, but I like her.
Shane Glines anything to lose sleep over though.
