For the past couple of weeks, I've been glued to my couch on most nights watching some pretty tense tennis dramas unfold on my TV. Australia Open is here in Melbourne and it's the only time of the year that I actively watch tennis. So naturally, I wanted to work on drawing something tennis related.
I wanted a subject to practice my Photoshop drawing and painting so since I'm having tennis fever right now, what better subject than a tennis player? Here's my work:
I've been chipping away slowly at this drawing for the past week. I've learnt a lot from this piece, especially patience and the ability to delete and start afresh. That left hand has taken me about 3 days and many, many restarts.
Of course, there's a whole heap more work left that I can keep doing on this, but I think I've reached a point where I'm happy to call it a good study and exercise and I know what I need to work on and keep practicing. :)
So, have you been watching the tennis too? I'm really looking forward to some epic-ness in the Men's semi finals this Friday between Nadal and Federer. :)
