Decemboobs 2017, Entry #24: Godiva Hair

Entry #24 in this year's Decemboobs, the annual, month-long, daily drawing challenge in which cartoonists look at photographs and living volunteers/professional models to find the answer to the age-old question: Boobs - how do they work?
A funny thing happened on the way to this drawing: I went to see a movie yesterday and in the middle of it, there was a puppet explaining to the viewers how important it was to embrace failure as a source of learning. I've been saying the same thing in these here entries for a while, but it still felt great to have my opinion validated, you know? Hearing it from the puppet made me fearless. So I went to the latest entry on The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society (The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society) and picked a difficult photo to draw from, with extreme foreshortening, smallish figures one of whom has small breasts (I have also posted before on how I find smaller breasts harder to draw, so I won't go into that again), natural light and oh, lots of hair. To make it more interesting, I switched back to digital sketching for the first time in several months (not counting a quick portrait I drew from imagination earlier). For Christmas, my wife gave me a Wacom Link, which allows me to use her Very Expensive Mobile Studio Pro as a vanilla Cintiq, and I wanted to give that a bit of a test run so I could iron out the kinks and get used to it.
There was no way I was going to translate the foreshortened arms into a line drawing. I'm honestly surprised they turned out as well as they did. I love the Godiva hair on the girl in front - it's a great, cute look that reminds me of the hippie era. May incorporate that into my character design for Liana as I'm becoming less and less happy with the twists she's wearing.

Nicely done! Love the foreshortening and poses, translated really well into drawing!

Thanks! I think using the coarser ink brush was a bit of a cheat, but on the other hand, it's the brush I want to use for at least one comic in the next year, so I need to learn to work with it.

Maybe there’s a way of using it together with a finer tip, just for details. Just like many inkers use with wet media.
I just got an IPad and playing around with it, but it’s quite challenging to do comics on it, even though i’ve Used wacoms and cintiqs in the past. Perhaps it’s too small for comics

Yeah, I've started narrowing the brush compared to the out-of-the-box version skycladstrega gave me. I think I did that in Sketchbook on the desktop Mac as well, but it's been a few months so I wouldn't know.

It always takes some time to figure out this stuff, finessing it...
