  Brushes at arm's lengthJan 09, 2013 5:57 AM PST | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:I should give up all notions of actually getting something done in these blog articles, at least until I no longer have to be running around looking for apartments, sheez. Anyway I do feel compelled to say that hopefully today's page will serve as a reminder to future me, to pull back and draw at arm's length if that close-up face isn't coming out quite right--because sometimes I just can't take it all in properly at normal drawing distance, and the various pieces don't quite fit together like they should; when working digitally you can just use that handy Zoom Out function, but when using a real brush you just have to...make your arm longer. Or get a longer brush, I suppose.
 
So that's what I did in the end after blotting out previous attempts at the face with copious amounts of white ink. Even pulling back didn't cure all problems instantly, though; her redrawn right eye was still a bit out of place after the first arm's-length pass:
