Another After Mauldin

 

Another reference sketch from a drawing by Bill Mauldin, this time with a bit more of my own style thrown in

    I just got Bill Mauldins book “up front” and compairing your drawings and his u got his style spot on!

    Yes.I like your own style much better. I think it’s that idea of movement don’t you? You give the viewer some room to answer some of their own questions about your figures. This guy looks “dog-tired”. I think I would be, too, if I’d seen the things they saw and had to do the things that were asked of them. Nice drawing, K.

    Thanks Leslie. I do agree, movement is key in drawings like this. I like allowing the viewer to participate in the drawing, and I’m glad you’re able to relate with the characters, that’s one of the reasons why I’m doing the book—they aren’t just actors or isolated characters caught up in a storyline, they’re people like the rest of us, just happened to be there during the war. Glad that comes through.

    Thanks! And enjoy the book; the pictures and words both are amazing.
