Drawing a moving target. Using pre-painted pages.

The way I moved around this page was very quick and fragmented - head here - leg there. Some things (like a figure on the very top_ came in one piece. Others were completed in several parts. I think using this pre-painted background makes this page a little more interesting for me to work through by providing some hint in composition. Sometimes I make these pre-painted pages as a way to get through a sketching block. And sometimes these backgrounds make me work in a new way and help with the same thing - try them out! :)


  1. I like your subject matter, too, and am sure "moving target" is an apt name. :) I admire your ability to recreate the person, with just the right details.

  2. These are SO perfect, Nina, and what memories!

  3. Cathy, we had great fun on our San Diego WEEKDAY sketch crawl yesterday, video by Lydia.
    I was fascinated by the flags blowing in the breeze and made some attempts to draw them. A very interesting challange.


We'd love your feedback...please share your thoughts!
