it’s not exactly Stephen Foster’s “Old Folks at Home.”

    Nicely done. I’m curious to know where you started. Do you do an underdrawing first? Did you start with the figures and then draw in the pool?

    I tend to start with whatever part I think will be easy/satisfying to draw, and then I work my way out from that spot. So on this, I might have started at that expressive elbow.

    That ‘expressive elbow’–thank you. I started with a couple of lines for the hot tub and then started working on the figures. I tend not to do underdrawing. Maybe I’m too lazy? What’s funny about that elbow is that I intended that figure to be a man–two men talking, two women talking–but the pose and the puffiness of the hair sort of converted him into a her.

  3. India Says:

    Huh. I read her as a him.

    Great. You saw it as I first saw it!
