Wow! This has been a long series, I’m at picture post 27 for my mimes. I think the only sketch to top that was the Remembering 9/11 sketch.
If you’ve followed along, you’ll remember that I made the female head too small. So, erasing had to be done. I thought I could get away with erasing the lower side of the head. Then expand down and out from there.
I was able to enlarge the head a bit. But then I couldn’t get that mouth right. I was disappointed that I liked it in the previous version. So, instead of drawing from the picture for the smile, I drew from the earlier sketch. Hey, whatever works, right?
The other thing I have trouble duplicating is…..any head tilt or turn. Again, I’ve drawn the face looking straight on. Maybe someday, I’ll figure head angles out….but today was not the day. I also needed to bring some of that hair puffiness down.
Looking at this now….right here…..I think I should’ve shaded much more around the eyes and mouth. But I think some of the issue in the picture above may have to do with the camera not picking up all the minor shading details.
What fun!!….I just love sketching and I have no idea why (why must I always have a reason to like something?) It’ll be nice to do something in color next. I appreciate you guys stopping by and commenting when you can. It really helps!!

- 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!
