I've decided to assign myself a bit of illustration homework to help me explore the figure. When I draw people, I tend to always give them the same facial expression, same hairdo, etc. So I decided to work on expanding my features a bit. My new personal assignment is to attempt to illustrate all the full-length models in the current JCrew catalog. Yes, they're all rail-thin, so I'm not going to experiment with different body types much, but it's a start. Plus...I love the clothes, so why not draw them?
Here's JCrew illustration #1, page 004.
