Champagne Flute Closeup
Yesterday I drew a vampire getting stabbed. He was holding a champagne glass, which was spilling as he twisted in his death throes. I quite liked the image, but I realized after the fact that I had drawn the vampire's grip incorrectly. A classy gent never holds the stem of the glass, and certainly never in a fist.
I figure I'll be doing a lot of close-ups like this on busier days when I can't spend too long on the drawing. Besides, it gives me an opportunity to focus on the details for things which would be tiny in a larger drawing.
I'm not very happy with this. Nothing really works well IMHO. But what are you gonna do?
