I like cloth.

I felt like doing something simple this week so here's a quick sketch. I'm trying to loosen up a bit and play more with color and mood.

I think ever since I was first amazed by this sculpture in art history class, I've been a bit crazy about figures in cloth. The neat thing about it is the mastery of all the angles. It is practically equally awesome no matter what direction you look at it. Now that's not easy to do!

In fact, I also have my own little copy of it, and it's one of the few things I'd run inside for if my house was on fire. Which is probably because I bought it in college many years ago when I couldn't really even afford food, and it's taken on more meaning in my life now than just a piece of art.
