Still having fun with the Inktober drawings. Here’s my interpretation of Hungry.
I started with a photo of my dad waiting at a table for a meal. I wanted to explore more mark-making and value range with my pens.
You can see what I chose to keep in the drawing compared to the photo, such as the position of the subject, and the overall composition.
However, I changed many of the details, like the location, and the place settings, in order to make the overall content of the image more interesting.
I like to work with photographs as reference, to understand proportions or to get an angle or pose, but not as a way to recreate exactly what’s in the picture.
I used similar techniques with the drawing for the prompt, Collect, which you can see here.
I know I’m behind on the Inktober prompts, but keep checking in! I’ll catch up eventually. Happy drawing!
