Remembering 9/11….part 3

This guy off to the side was tough!!  I had no sense of dimension, the first time I drew him he was much shorter….then I erased and lifted his hat up, re-drew, and he was still too short!!  Joy!

What a valuable tool this is…..seeing the picture next to the drawing on my monitor.  I have drawn this guy too barrel-chested…. will have to adjust.

If this picture was taken with some natural light, you would be able to see the drawing better.

It’s slowly starting to come together….and I can’t wait to get started on more shading.  This contour drawing stuff drives me crazy!!

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!
