Sketchbook #37

My wife just got a new magazine with some good reference for my sketchbook. This is last nights study. I asked Natalie what she thought she said "You always draw things long, don't you." That is wife speak for "It's too long." This version is in fact squished to compensate because it is true I always draw things long, it's possible it is the perspective or it may just be in my head, I may want to get that checked.

I think I tend draw things too wide. I haven't gotten any girl friend speak for it yet though.

Great drawing!

Rectangles I find more appealing than boring squares. Perhaps that is the reason you stretch the image.
Nice study by the way.

David, I do the same thing, draw things long. I wonder how one "gets that checked out." Let me know, will you? Anyway, love this, reminds me of a Morgan Weistling subject.

I draw the same way when sketching. I think it's the perspective of drawing in a sketchbook and not vertically. Wonderful sketch though, your line quality and control are impressive :)
