A sketch beginning to take shape….part 3



Had to pull up the image in the computer and ENLARGE to see the details in the face.



At the top of the arm you’ll see two lines….yep…tweaking going on!



These are my favorite shots…..feels like I’m looking over someone’s shoulder.  Keeping those pencils real sharp helps immensely.



I am trying REALLY HARD to not overdo my graphite gradients.  Have to do a lot more dabbing this way.

More to come Smile

I love it when you show your WIPs. I like to see your process. I do alot of erasing myself to get it just right. I've been showing a WIP on my blog the last several posts. And i try to have a WIP on my header that i update frequently.

I use to take all the erasing as a fault. Now i try not to. Its just my process. :)

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!
