Finally got to my favorite part! Yep, drawing in this background. I totally love doing this part, because I could unplug the ‘noggin. LOL!! I think those colorful pebble squares work here, too. But not everyone around me agrees. My dear teen daughter told me that this picture was “way too busy”, but what does she know? HaHa, I usually listen to her though, because she’s got a good eye. That’s ok, I’ll survive, we are all entitled to our own opinions. Plus, I’m all about color and she’s not.
I am loving how my friend in blue turned out. She’s a lady with class and I hope she likes my representation. However, in the original picture she tilted her head to the left, and I’ve drawn it tilted to the right, which makes me wonder just what I’m seeing!!! Ah, well!
Just an early stage of the background part. I am planning on fixing the yellow-biker-chics eyes because she’s so much prettier than I made her out to be.
Learned a lot with this drawing.
- Sometimes less is more (less pencil marks for the eyes and things)
- When you are stuck on a dimension of a person…..walk away from it for awhile, preferably overnight. If you don’t have that much time, ask someone to look at it with you. Their fresh eyes will give you the needed adjustment. (I do this A LOT!)
- Take the things you like or can do from a picture and EMBELLISH it anyway you want….It’s allowed, really!
- Not everyone will like my version of the picture, and that’s OK.
