Looking out of the window I recognized a woman with a bike. So I couldn’t resist and made a drawing.
I love the Ligne claire comic style from Belgium. Especially Hergé’s comic adventures of Tintin. So I do this kind of drawings to learn about:
how to draw people in Ligne claire style
how to draw normal body shapes with clothes
how to color the drawing in a minimal way
Most of the time I take a picture to remember the person that I wanted to portrait.
Of course I have to ask the person before which is hard sometimes but also a lot of fun.
Many people (like 50%) don’t want to be photographed which is fine but sometimes sad if they really looked inspiring. Below you can see a short series of drawings of women by bike.
