Virtual Reality: Distancing

For my new illustration, we return to the same man in my previous post as he watches TV on the couch while his wife eats dinner alone. Although I have yet to disclose his name, you should expect him to return as the main character in my column. This character will receive color treatment, but the rest of my illustrations will be black and white. 

As you might imagine, this piece was inspired by my dad, who often sits on the couch during dinner to watch sports games. I’ve always drawn cartoons, so working on more realistic pieces like this one is new to me. I’m still trying to improve on the proportions of the people and items in my drawings,so I hope that my growth becomes noticeable throughout the evolution of this column.
