MEDIUM: Digital art/MS Paint, PC/Mouse drawn
DESCRIPTION: Female nude/Striptease dancer
I started off by drawing just the legs/hips; next, I decided to tack the rest of the body on.
Then, I thought to myself…well, she looks very unbalanced, like she’s leaning backwards in the air; her legs are obviously not in any position to support her weight?! So, I added in a chair to take her weight.
Then, I thought well since I’ve added in a chair; might as well add in a room…as chairs are generally seen inside of rooms.
The drawing was all ‘black and white’; so, I decided to go colour it in. I coloured her flesh pink; and, the room became multi-coloured…which is often what happens when I work with Microsoft paint…do a ‘black and white’ drawing, first; then, colour it in; for some reason I tend to select multi-colours; as one colour, alone, looks to me to be far too boring!
Finally, I stood back and looked at the end result; and, thought what’s a suitable title? I decided on…‘striptease’…as the drawing looked rather ‘tacky’…not all tidy, polished and clean; so, I felt that suited this type of frequently ‘hidden’ subject matter.
