Details or Essence

My drawings today didn’t focus a lot on details and I don’t really care for them.

I much prefer the details as I feel that through the details I can capture the essence of the person. Not just what their body is doing, the sense of weight or movement, but maybe what they are feeling or thinking, maybe even deeper. Don’t get me wrong the body tells us a ton about the persons mood but I don’t think it goes deep enough, for the depth of perception I want I think details are the only way. At least that is what I think right now, it could change years down the road.

Most of my drawing don’t focus too much on the facial features, I must admin that I avoid them due to time and lack of experience so not it is time to face my deficiencies and run at them head on.
