Another Backhand Sketch…part 4



Yes, I’m sketch-saturated so here I am….posting away.  This is much easier!  LOL!



Would you believe that when I initially drew the contour lines for her head, the line that represents the top of her hat is where I thought the bill of her hat would be…..really!



A picture is worth a thousand words, as is a picture of a picture.  After I drew this I brought her mouth up some, closer to her nose.

I’m finding it challenging to match that determined expression on her mouth.  But I’m not ready to quit yet.

What I see I need to do is:
  1. Elongate the top of the hat
  2. Shorten the nose
  3. Tilt the head
  4. And if I’m feeling real motivated…..slenderize her torso.
Or I can just make do….and work on the other earring, and the necklace.  See what I mean about faces??

I was away from Google Reader for about a week, so I got to see all these posts in order right away, and I have to say, it's really fascinating to watch the drawing emerge. I think it looks great, though I would add "her other earring" to your list of things to do. :)

Can't wait to see the next progress report - and the finished product!

You did a great job catching the concentration on her face and the "THWACK" moment (if that makes any sense?!) Also, the muscle definition is INCREDIBLE!

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!
