Editorial Spread - Drawing by Live4ArtInLA Editorial Spread - Drawing by Live4ArtInLA
This started as a request to accompany someone’s writing…. Then something happened.

Wanted the practice and the diversion from a stressful work period, so I took on the suggested (much more grandiose) idea. About half way through the writer bailed. I simplified what was started, and decided to finish, even though you can see where I hurried through, and this definitely doesn’t tell the whole original story.

(Large drawing and none of the large flatbed scanners available. Apologize for the wonkiness that happens due to multi-pieces meshed together.)

i might be missing something but it looks a bit off to me. i mean don't get me wrong this is so truly amazing just like all your other work but it doesn't look as real. kurt looks "placed" on the couch, it doesn't looks natural. my problem is you are so talented normally i'm afraid i'm missing something obvious. is it supposed to look "fake" and posed?

i read the description and how your were rushed on some parts but i feel like this is something different.

and yeah i don't mean to offend or anything you have to know i love your art, but i know it can be obnoxious when all the comments you get are "cool!" so i thought this might be helpful. again though i might be missing something so i might just be wasting everyone's time XD

No, I get it. The stiff pose was a bit on purpose. If you take the title of the piece into account or see the next drawing post you'll see that this was initially to be a magazine spread (editorial), thus the bit rigid/pose bit to drive that fact home. But the fact that I rushed definitely played a part in how this came off. Had I spent more (!) time on it, Kurt would have sunk a bit more into his surroundings. I appreciate the feedback. :)

glad to be of service and that's interesting, i never thought about that fact that it is for the editorial so that's why it is posed like that. that's very clever of you.

I love how the drawing violates its own border.
