It's been a little while since I last posted, many things going on and I haven't drawn lately (bad!). I'm currently trying to work on a few sketches of a character of mine, and I need to work up by studying some anatomy and proportion. The trick is that this character is 12-13 years old. I'm having trouble with references.
I mean, if I search Preteen anything online, I get all manner of sites that I don't dare click on. Hell, I get nervous even Googling the word. As far as life drawing, well, all the 13 year olds I really knew are in their 20's+ now, and I'm wary of being the creepy guy sketching girls at the mall.
I've looked through the bookstores and found cursory segments on drawing little kids, but no adolescents. I'm beginning to think that I'll have to rely on Target ads, or suck it up and buy a copy of TigerBeat - or whatever kids read these days (if they read magazines at all anymore).
Does anyone know of anyother references that I could look at without winding up on a Pedophile watch list?
