Surrender, 6″x6″ watercolor on paper

I found this pose on the model’s tumblr, and it made me think of the Winter Soldier from the comics, who is shorter and more slender than the absolute unit from the MCU.

I wanted to experiment both with the figure drawing and some unusual color choices, using shades of blue and violet for the shadows as a contrast to the pinkish white boy skin tones.

Poor Bucky looks so vulnerable, with his little feet curled under and his hands behind his head, a deliberate contrast to the intimidating picture he makes in his full uniform and face mask, armed to the teeth and dangerous all day.

Above, you can see how the blues and pinks and purples are layered rather than mixed to create shadow and highlight spaces in the figure. Below, he’s trapped in a frame, just waiting to find out what happens next.

I’ll round out my weekend of naked sketches with this impish little sprite, sitting on a branch and flashing the world. I guess he just didn’t feel like putting leaves anywhere but his hair today.

Mom’s wedding went really smoothly and was lovely, and I survived mostly unscathed, except for a blister on one heel from the new shoes. It was very small and had just immediate family, and nobody dropped anything, not even their lines.

Nude Man Reaching

Another nude sketch today, his hands & feet are a little out of proportion but I really liked the line his body made in my head, and that’s what I tried hardest to get out onto the paper. Hands and feet are always so fiddly, when I’m just doodling I don’t always want to erase a dozen times to get them right.

Wedding today, wish me luck! Not that I have much to do other than stand around and smile and look awkward in my dress, but I’m getting about socialified out and there’s still a few more days of people in my future before I can go back to my hermit life.

I’m busy with prep for Mom’s wedding, so have doodle! It’s a nude woman curled in a fetal position, looking over her shoulder at something that displeases her. Inspired by any number of iconic anime, tv and movie moments, though they usually do a better job of hiding the nipples. Enjoy!
