blind contour friday 02
here's my second go at the blind contour friday. it's of my friend and coworker vanessa. needless to say that she is far more beautiful than my blind contour of her resting at my table. she and i had just returned from an evening of dancing and had eaten a bunch of longaniza (filipino sausage) with rice and eggs (YUM!); that kind of combination exhausts anyone.
for those trying to make sense of the image, she is resting her head on the table (not shown) and her forearm is perpindicular to the tabletop. think of it as an "L", with her head as the shorter leg. it is interesting to note how all of the small details of the image are grossly larger than the larger scale parts (e.g., her hand is almost twice the size of her arm, and her facial features overwhelm her face). however, it is perhaps far more interesting than what i would have drawn of her, left to my own deeply ingrained artistic tendencies.
for more blind contour friday fun, please visit inkfinger, bearskinrug, laurelines, rachael fowler, wally torta, elaine phipps, laura olson, koukla carolyn, fiona, learning daily, and kimlan cornell.
