I am calling the girl "Harvest" and I am offering it up as a Giveaway. I used Rebecca Parker Stock images as a reference.
The other is just a bunch of gesture poses I did from Posermaniacs. I am not fast enough to do the 30 second poses, so i did 90 second. It still doesn't seem like enough time, but I was happy with a couple of them.
This took much longer than I want to admit. I cannot talk while I draw. I cannot draw while I talk. When it comes time to have a discussion, I have to choose one or the other. Switching back and forth between the two makes me frustrated. In my attempt to be a multi-tasker, I really messed up this drawing several times. Lucky for me, Charcoal is very forgiving.
I hate to be mean and tell people "I can't talk to you right now." It is hard to explain how I need to draw. Loving them and talking to them has nothing to do with my need to draw. I need to draw regardless of my relationship with them. So I try really hard to find that sense of balance. How much time do I give them? How much time do I give my studies? It is a juggling act.
Today I chose not to hurt feelings. I didn't accomplish nearly what I had hoped to accomplish.
This is the last of the pink paper. On to the other colors!
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
Toxic - This is a journal entry before words are added.The topic of toxic people has been coming up in many discussions lately. This is how I think it would look if you could make a visual image. This started as a simple form study and ended up as this. #journal #art #artjournal #selfcare #toxicpeople #getitoutofmyheadvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
