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
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
