I like to see the different search terms people use to get to my blog. I’ve seen “drawing evolution” a bunch of times, like it was a school assignment or something, and “how to draw Shailene Woodley”. The most common I see multiple times a week is “gymnastics drawings” or “how to draw gymnasts”, something along those lines. Bottom line, people love the gymnast drawings.
It had been a while since I had actually drawn a gymnast so I thought I’d give the people what they want and do a new one. (I’ll try scanning this drawing later, the photo didn’t turn out so well.)
This one is of McKayla Maroney. I drew her a while ago here in 2012. I did this drawing the same way I’ve been doing the Bargue drawings. No more grid method here, the string for measuring gave much better results. I also did all the dark tones first before moving on to mid and lighter tones.
2H-2B pencil was used and it’s 11×14 size.
So, thank you to all those gymnastics lovers out there for stopping in and checking out my stuff. I hope you like it.
