Hello to all and to all hello.

I am JFH which stands for Johanna Franciska Hartgers. Yeah, try saying that out loud when you are not born in the Netherlands. That's why the short-cut. I write for my money and draw out of fantasy-overflow. I read a lot, most history for my writing so I tend to stumble upon a lot of inspiring women.

Last new year, in a drunk stupor, Hermanneke came to me. I did not pay much attention to her at first, but whenever I came upon someone I felt inspired by I kept seeing her in Hermanneke's form. So I did my first, just a plain one, to see how she would flow out of my pencil and while doing so I immediately new what her colors would be. Brown for the element earth, strong, comforting, always still. Yellow for spirit, for everyone's spirit shoulsd feel like sunshine (feeble hope, I know, but can't blame a girl for trying ;) ) Red for fire, red also stands for love, lust and passion in general. Green/blue for water, and without water no life, and blue for air, always in movement.

Her name is a tribute to my father (rip) Herman and my mother ( still her :) ) Anneke

Herm/An/nekke

For without them I would not be here and without me Hermanneke would not have seen the light of day. Also, Hermanneke had a cute sound to it,. although I must admit I have not given any thoughts about how it might sound in other languages :D

I modeled her after the old fertility goddesses like the Venus of Willendorf. Her forms more a tribute to her strength and to amplify her womanhood. I wanted a simple way to show a female figurine in many forms, and I think I managed. Also, I am used in drawing full figured women so it came natural to me.

So I hope you might take a look at my little girl, take care and keep safe!

JFH

Ah, well, you need the occasional ass to appreciate the good people just a wee bit more ;)
Good to read that the site offers enough protection to deal with them though

Thank you, so kind!

And when drawing full figured women... think circles and ellipses.
All that starts with the letter B ( Boobs, Belly, Bottom) start with a circle (in the case of boobs and bum 2 circles per set of course :))and use it to draw the shape inside it.
Arms and legs draw a ellipse and draw the form inside it.
For the head, best think I could come up with is a form shaped like a guitar-pick. Give the face it's shape inside.
I have started doing this when I was 14 and after a while I had no need for the circles and such anymore :)

If you try, keep me posted allright? :)
