I just sent this presentation to a company Thursday. They liked it and I am flying out to meet them in their coporate headquaters in about 8 days for a position. I am very pleased with it. It is my first time drawing girls and its by hand also. I am leary of my hand drawing as I have gotton used to computer. It feels good though to use your hands.

Clay, I honestly do love your work so much! That figure on the left is so well-pulled together and wonderfully professional looking. I really hope that you get that job that you've been wanting. It seems as if you certainly deserve it...

These are life drawings from last week, just a couple of bums. (The colours were meant to be inverted for that first one).

This one was my unexpected favourite, a different approach... We focused on the background rather than the figure and just filled in the outline with contour lines.

And, to finish off here, random feet and something that was meant to be me emoting with that paint?

I like the muscle articulations, Purple!

And now, as they say, for something completely different:

This is the prettiest dress I have made in months.

This one is a Halloween costume for one of my co-workers. I told her that if she can't win a costume contest with it (it is a copy of one of Beyonce's stage dresses) then she should at least scam as many free drinks as her cleavage will allow.


Front


The sleeves are slit all the way up to the elbow, then have a peek-a-boo effect from elbow to shoulder.


The design originally called for a matching keyhole cutout in front, but my client deemed it a bit too risque.


The mockup, with the original neckline.

The final version is about 3" longer and has about 1.5" more wearing-ease.

Quite funky as_you_like_it, especially that geometric one!

These are from yesterday... My apologizes for the sort-nudity, it's for an assignment. The background's actually going to be very geometric as well, I've found a fabric sample with lots of black and gold that I think will be perfect. So far I have been looking at a lot of Klimt for inspiration. Also, some of the work of Egon Schiele. A nice chance to take a slight departure from my typical styles.

Here's a slight sampling of Schiele's work.

here is one on my latest drawings. i can't shade to save my life, so it's just the basic idea on paper. did all of you go to school to learn to sketch and shade like that? does anyone know of a program i can buy or whatnot for my sketches so that i can color them and do detailing?

It's still not finished, but considering that I've been working on it for hours, I thought that I was probably allowed to post it at this point. The body and face still need to be done, but I wasn't exactly in the mood for them now.
The detail of this work is probably the most I have ever done for anything, ever. Sometimes I honestly wonder at my sanity and foresight...
