"X_Ariana_01- Children of the Soft Machine"
5" x 7.75" color pencil on paper
This one is my current favorite (which is why it's not currently for sale). The model was actually lying down. I wanted to keep her great shape but the "reclined nude" pose just wasn't doing it for me. So I poured her onto the page like fluid and shaped her around a bit. Suddenly she is moving yet still. Lying down but dancing. Wonderful.
This is a continuation of the "Children of the Soft Machine" series I started last year (2006). I still start out drawing large to loosen up and the get blood and magic flowing. Recently I've been finding myself drawing the figures on these smaller sheets of paper that I found. I like working with this natural colored paper. Currently it's making me happy.
