Hope they didn't shock you too much. :)
When I started my girl drawings about a month ago, I imagined I would have loads of fun making up clothes for them. But as soon as my pencil move to below neck line ... well you can see what have been happening from the above drawings!
I have to admit that I was in quite a shock initially, but after the first nude girl drawing (which I didn't include in this post), the resistance was gone. I found myself enjoying drawing them quite a lot!
As much as the girls brought me joy, they also touched on the fear associates with being a creative person.
I have hesitation to post them. I worry about how people would react to them and if the drawings would change how people think of me. (Not that I have any status and / or reputation to maintain.) Ultimately, it is fear of rejection to my drawing (hence me), which have me holding onto the drawings for some time.
But that's exactly the point. Unless I give up my creativity, rejection and acceptance come with the territory.
To me, creativity is about freedom, the free will to follow my intuition and instinct to create.
So there you go, the fear is gone ...
As usual, my fellow bloggers and creatives, what do you think of my girls?
