Well, I got the other two smiles done. I think this was a good exercise in imitating the picture dimensions. I like that I only worked with half the face. I can see so many things now that I’m through that aren’t quite right. Why do I only see them at the “completion” phase? Sure would be better if I could see it earlier, when I am still working the picture. Possibly, because I’m concentrating on other things; such as getting the shading right (you know making it 3D).
This one was more difficult than I thought it was going to be….after all I didn’t have to draw teeth! But that chin just perplexed me time and time again. It’s another picture of a head with a slight turn. Which I can’t seem to see correctly. This was the first time I have done a mustache and I pretty much just winged it!
The pictures resemble who they are but, I can see so many little tweaks that would make the drawing more accurate.
I had to go back to the colored version for the male drawing. I just couldn’t see where to shade if I didn’t.
I think I’ll do the eyes and foreheads of these same images next…….then I’ll cut them up and tape them together! Just Kidding!!
I’m ready for some color now!! I need a no-brainer activity.

- 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!
