I was messing around on a piece of paper drawing random poses for Ember when I decided to take a break from it and draw Mandy, Dean Yeagle style.
I can't believe I pulled off a 10 minute Yeagle. I've never considered trying to draw Mandy in the past because I always thought I was never up for the challenge. I'm actually quite happy that this pic didn't turn out as bad as I thought it would be. First time I'm drawing Mandy too, I consider that quite a personal milestone.
I suppose if I continue drawing more Mandy I might be able to master some of Yeagle's techniques. This by no means is a walk in the park. Trying to analyze and learn Yeagle's art is comparable to the Wright Brothers trying to study supersonic jet technology.
Regardless, it's a sketch I've actually felt proud of. Haven't had a feeling like that in a long time. The pic may not look impressive, but it is to me, because I thought I was stuck drawing KP style or DP style all the time. I suppose why it took me hours to draw KP and DP style and do a 10 Minute Mandy pic is because of the anatomy limitations present in DP and KP style. DP style is the worst offender though.
