Drawing for fun - ELEKTRA pt.III


Still plugging away at that Elektra piece, when I have a minute or three.

Resolved the hair, which kept bugging me. Didn't *feel* right before mainly because it looked more like a flag then hair to me. I fixed some issues with the legs too. One was too long, and too thin. Didn't match the other at all, and threw off the balance.

Also added some new dead ninjas. Gotta look for ref on some cool tombstones. I think I want to add an angel sculpture somewhere in the background, maybe off in the distance a bit.

Anyway, enjoy.

best,
Mike

PS - Here's the last Elektra post

Christ Mike, she is beautiful (both the way you've drawn Elektra and the drawing itself...)

This is just getting better and better. I like the progress on this a lot. The sword by her leg is adding that extra subtle thing to the drawing that makes it work more and more.

There are a few angel tombstone drawings/pictures that I have always liked:

The second one I liked just because it showed wear, yet beautiful in its own way.

Hey man! Thanks for the kind words, AND the pics. Don't be shocked to see one in the final drawing :)

Best,

this is a great piece, but the only thing bugging me is the top of her head. feels too flat, and not enough room for her brain box. but damn are you a drawing machine.....

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Shit, I think you may be right. Needs a slop upward towards the back. Good call :)
