When I drew this about a week ago, I named it “Resident Evil”. I wasn’t 100% happy with that title, but it seemed to fit. Then, when I went to post it on Sunday, I was about to go to my mother’s memorial service. I realized the correct name for it … “Loss”. An emotion we have all experienced.
Since I switched to an iPad for my drawings, I haven’t done that many full figures. With my trusty old Rapidograph pen and paper, I used to draw whole bodies more often. As good as the Apple Pencil and iPad are, it’s still a bit like drawing with a log (compared with a Rapidograph) and the slick glass surface makes fine line control more difficult than with paper and pen. With more experience and practice, I’ll master both mediums.
