My mime….part 5

Lions and Tigers and Bears…oh My!!  Heads and Faces and Proportion…oh My!!

This drawing stuff sure keeps me on my toes…..just when I think I’ve got a somewhat accurate portrayal, with the shading and the features. 

I step back and go….”EEEK!”.  There’s always another unforeseen element I forgot to consider.  At this point I really don’t know if I made the head too small for the body or the shoulders too big for the head.  I don’t know if I can contour up that left side and erase away some of that bulk.  I guess if I’ve had a good night’s sleep and a strong cup of coffee….maybe…just maybe.

Yes, something is not quite right! But you got the expression exactly. Isn't that the hardest thing to capture?

I am packed and ready to have breakfast. Windy and rainy here so I am allowing extra trime for the trip.

I look at the second to last photo and i i have to agree that something is not quite right but then i look at the last photo thats not such a close up and i like it.

I'm looking forward to seeing how you do his face as i think it is a very unique face. I want to see if you can capture it.......pssst....i know you will! Your doing great! deb

I think this is fabulous, I wouldn't worry about perfect accuracy because it leads to almost never being satisfied and this is such wonderful work. Thanks for sharing, Jennibellie xx

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!
