Thanks again, Ogemego, for this latest submitted sketch. ~ Eros
not finished work in progress, I’m struggling a little. David x
Good start, David… if I might make a few small recommendations; start by softening out the jawline a bit - men, more often than women, have it as a pronounced facial feature. Also, erase about half an inch from the outer contour lines forming the breasts (so, I’m referring to those lines just underneath each armpit). This lowers the breasts to a more natural level. Generally speaking, only in botched silicone jobs would you observe a woman’s breasts to begin directly under her clavicles. Otherwise, good proportions.. and love that long, elegant neckline. Thanks for sharing ~ Eros
Confronted by old age and impotence, Picasso was defiantly productive. These works are drawn from the series of 156 prints which he made between 1970 and 1972, around the age of 90. The series has been compared to a private theater, in which the actors are Picasso himself, his close friends, and his favorite artists of the past. In the works shown here, Picasso appears as both a gnarled satyr, and as a shadowy silhouette looking on at two prostitutes. The face of his wife Jacqueline is portrayed in an artist’s sketchbook, as he watches a group of top-hatted clients enter a brothel. The Impressionist artist Edgar Degas appears as a frock-coated voyeur. The fixation with sexuality and voyeurism is bound up with an awareness of mortality. For Picasso, art had become the only means to defy the approach of death.
