Lots of Dots!
Ink on Bristol Board
This was a Weekly Drawing Challenge on Wetcanvas. It was a "just to see if I could" sort of project. Once I had the initial drawing and layout done, I did most of it in front of the Television while listening to TV with my family. I am not that into cats, but this had a lot of challenges. The biggest thing I learned was that I am in love with Micron Pens. This is the first one I ever tried without it and quite honestly, I was spoiled. I will never do another one without it.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
