Love the newspaper ideas

Once again I had fun drawing from a newspaper photo.  This one struck me as so beautiful.  Do you remember a while back reading about how if you make a mistake make it look like you meant it?  Well, I didn't make a mistake on this but I just didn't like the way her leg was posed.  So I blended it into the fabric.  I'm sure you can see that now.  The composition looks more pleasing to me.  Before it just looked awkward.  What do you think?


  1. Thanks, Josh! That means a lot coming from someone so talented like you. How are things? I just haven't been with it at all lately but still trying to get some things done. I work for an airline in reservations and I try to do things while on hold.
