Child Prodigy

Wow!!  Two sketches in one month…..I guess I enjoy sketching.

I found this picture on Flickr (taken by NessieNoodle) the other day, and it reminded me of my Mural drawing that I did a few months ago (because of the chalk board and the view from behind).  I thought this little guy was pretty cute. Since I knew I needed to draw more clothes, practice drawing folds and material better,  I thought I’d give this a shot.

Lots of folds to practice with on his jacket.

Probably the folds are a little “too dramatic” here…..ah well….that’s why I’m doing this.  Yep, still training my eye and my hand.

If you look closely, you can see where I outlined the figure with my .005 Sakura Micron pen. 

And to make this sketch interesting I thought I’d make this little guy a Mathematical Genius.  Here he is solving complex Calculus and Differential Equation problems!!  And to think he’s still in diapers!  My, oh my, he’s way ahead of his peers! 

Don’t we all look at our kids this way, especially when they are young like this?  Don’t we wonder who they will become and secretly hope they are the Brightest?  Fastest?  Best?  But they are who they are (just like us parents)…..not so perfect, but probably a little better grounded than if they really were some Child Prodigy.

Just my humble opinion….since I’ve never even met a Child Prodigy!  LOL!!…..I’d be really curious though

I love the mathematical equation you added to the blackboard! That makes it perfect. I think you're doing such amazing pencil work....the draping and folds of the clothing look great to me. Perfection!!!

I'm impressed with the detail in the folds and shadows, even if you think they are overdone! I like that you went beyond the original drawing to add the fun details like math equations!

actually, i think YOU'RE the (child) prodigy here......wow, eden!!! you are my "sketched-folds-in-the-fabric" hero!! absolutely magnificent! and how you make me smile with your mathematical equation.......you rock, girl! xox

This is amazing! You are so very talented, makes me want to try to sketch some clothes...I have a hard time with shadows and folds.

Great drawing!

This is a beautiful sketch! I am quite delighted with the enthusiastic child and love the way you altered the board to reflect a different reality... a very successful drawing!

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
