Illustration Friday - Opposites



Most people couldn't believe Geraldine and Earnestine were related much less identical twins. The sisters were as opposite as brussell sprouts and deep-fried Twinkies. About the only thing they shared was lunch every Tuesday at Tiny's.

It was a bit creepy working on this drawing because I posed for both women. I couldn't help wondering which one I will turn into in twenty years. Which one do I want to turn into? Hmmmm...

This is just so good! I love the gestures...I can almost believe that they're real people. I wonder what their conversation is about. Wonderful details too. Works well as a line drawing on its own, and would probably be spectacular with some color, although it doesn't need it.

& you know someone's good when just the line drawing is great.

We should always draw the things we are.
Even if they do scare us.

Wonderful drawing and great little story to make it all come together. Your comments really interested me when you said you posed for both drawings... did you photograph yourself posing or have help doing that or did you look in a mirror?

Thanks everyone. Jana, I did use photos. I set the timer on my camera and sat at my kitchen table. I use the photos mainly to get the body proportions right.

You also drew my mom and her little sister. My mom is the one on the left... That is what I so wish I could become as well.
