My daughter stands with one foot on her leg all the time. Not being very successful at capturing her stance, I began doodling to find the problem I was having with the interior structure. On the second page I began playing with the idea of cross contours.
For the second set of sketches I went to Deviant Art and found a couple new stock photo's that I could use. I ended up finding this and this. She has such a soft, kind looking face, I had to give it a second try when the first one did not turn out quite like I wanted it to. I made a collection for stock I have drawn studies from. I thought it would be nice to keep track of the stock I borrow to learn from. That will also make it very easy to return to do more studies later.
I am trudging forward. I don't say that in a discouraged sort of tone. It is uncertainty. I am giving my best effort to improve on something every day. Last night I could not get the proportions down to save my life. Today I did a little better. It took me forever and I erased a lot, but I am pretty satisfied with the results.
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
