I get asked this..........A LOT!
If you have seen me in person or in a photo working on a piece, chances are you have seen me drawing upside down at some point. A picture typically spends 60% of its time upside down during my drawing phase.
People always seem amazed when they see it and stop to ask why. While some venture to guess that I do it so they can see what I am drawing while I am drawing it, I must admit that it honestly has nothing to do with them.
The reasons I do this are simple.....
It slows me down-I'm a fast drawer. Like really fast. Unfortunately, this creates problems when I have in my mind what I want a piece to look like but the speed at which I do it doesn't leave time for the details.
I'm big on details. By turning the picture upside down to draw it makes me concentrate on specific areas and the amount of detail I want to capture in that space. It narrows my focus allowing me to concentrate on fur texture & placement, water details, etc.
That's it, those are my reasons.
