I tried to lighten this picture up, still appears pretty gray….sorry.
In this “contour drawing” stage if you look closely, you can see just how many lines I put down alongside a similar line….then erase. It’s the only way I know how to do it. I guess I could grid the picture out first, but I’m not really into making more work for myself. Especially since these are just for fun. As I continue there will be more line adjustments, I’m sure….always are.
LoViNg my ipad!! Especially for times like this when I want to pull up my picture (anywhere) and start sketching.
I started to flip out when I saw how small the back circular area is compared to the original. Too late to go back now, just wish I saw it earlier. I hope she doesn’t come out deformed, hopefully she’ll just be short-waisted.
Off to tweak my flips, now.

- 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!
