Messing up a Mime….part 3

I shaded in a little bit more.  Then went back to the mime-folds. I took this picture outdoors since I prefer natural light when I can get it. 

I’m learning to see the “backlight” on objects.  Where the light has reflected back on a fold for instance and amongst the shadows you can see just a wee bit of light along a line.  Nothing's better than the gummy eraser for taking away a very narrow stripe of graphite.

The flaws are getting more obvious as I progress.  The contour drawing (outline) was a bit off in the arm.  I’ve made it too short.  May use my creative license and ignore it.

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!
