I was lazy today after my meetings and kind of zoned out at lunch. Somehow I managed to fit in a 10 maybe 15 minute sketch of one of the hardest hitting boxers. Mike Tyson! My goal is to loosen up my drawings. Stop drawing what I see but more the muscles and structure of the character or object.
When I started drawing I noticed I was still drawing the same way. So I drew it again right next to the first one and exaggerated more as I built the character. I tried to keep more shapes than forming the shape.
The more cartoon style one looks more like the real Tyson, then the first one. Probably cause I already drew it once so I noticed the main features more. Then the second time around I knew what to stretch and pull to add character to the sketch.
