I do like the red shoes of course, and the momentum is growing.
Brings back memories of when I used to skate.
thats frkn awesome! I actually got a skateboard recently. i've wanted to all my life but my body just won't allow it. Its like the one thing I can't do. Hence why I drew it.
Just when i stopped to skate...................
hard to think of a more carefree image of youth... except that the skater is clearly hurtling towards some sort of cliff-edge, or possibly an event horizon... Great drawing, the foreshortening and perspective distortion is well done.. that foot really comes off the page towards the viewer.
the darkness represents the washing out of the dream of being able to skateboard. My body won't let me even though its something I've wanted to do since I was very young.
Wonderfully detailed closeup with great use of shading.
