I was recently asked to do another commission for Magi Design, another Rob Ryanesque laser cut wedding card. This was all fine and great until I discovered that it would involve drawing two figures.
Now, I knew they were not asking for any kind of Da Vinci anatomical study but ever since doing life drawing classes at art college where we had an angry tutor who chain smoked and dropped cigarette ash on our drawings whilst (heavily) criticising them, I have not been the biggest fan of drawing people. All manor of crazy animals, yes, but not humans.
However, as this design was a homage to Rob Ryan I was able to be a bit more free with the style and incorporate the figures into a whimsical backdrop. Here is the result, hope you like it:
