Actually, the knees weren’t as hard as I thought they would be. They look like knees, not too sure if they look like the knees in the picture however. The elbows, what a breeze…..all ya gotta do is put some darker lead in the middle of the elbow and spread it out! Simple as that. If only….. If only, the rest of it were that easy. The hands, OMG, not even going (to try too hard) there. Cuz I think I’d be tearing the paper if I did. And this is some thick paper!
Oh…before I forget….I want to thank each one of you that commented on my last post! You guys are so generous with your thoughts! I really appreciate it! The other thing I wanted to clarify is the comment made in my class, the person wasn’t being mean, she just didn’t realize how she was coming off. I know I do that sometimes. I only brought it up because I realize how much work goes into these types of drawings. I’m just scratching the surface here.
I have not done a good job making my friend’s face resemble her at all! I will be doing the usual dance of…..draw, erase, draw, erase, erase……in that area to make it look (at least) familiar. Possibly my face came easier to me, because I’m used to it. I can spot the flaws much faster. After some time away from this, I can see that I have to fix Karan’s left knee. Looks too droopy!
I really like these graphite pencils, cuz I can give myself “quite the tan”……’Tis fun :D
