More Curly Fuzz Poodle
Another Curly Fuzz Poodle drawing by John.
Round 1: Eek!
I spent quite a while trying for this-- I started a couple of days ago, tried a few times to pick it up again, but I couldn't get it to look right. I didn't bother doing details or cleaning it up because something just seemed wrong about it. I squished it together. Upon closer inspection, I just ATE UP the spaces horizontally. I decided since so much of it was wrong, as a result, to just start on a new piece of paper.
So I started a meticulous do-over, this time checking more frequently how I was doing...
Lots of checking and squishing and fixing.
Finally, it started to look closer to correct.
I don't like the way his ears look. The details are not handled elegantly and the thicknesses of the ears vary. They're also a bit rounded out.
put perspective in the feet
the one that's closest to us should be bigger than the one that's farther away
be careful of the silhouette while fixing my mistake
So I tried to tweak some things-- I drew the closer foot again on a new piece of paper and Photoshopped it on in (pretty much the same idea as taking an X-acto and taping it in, only less involved with dangerous blades), and also made it so you could kinda see the old foot. Also tweaked the ears while I was at it.
