A Runner…Taking Form

Ahh, to pay attention to detail.  Cause it’s all in the details.

The details showed me that my shoulders were too long, they needed to be shortened.  I could not get that back arm to look right and it’s because my base (body) was incorrect.  So, after much erasing and re-drawing the right arm, I’d had enough and went to bed.

Proceeded this morning by neglecting the right arm completely.  Moving on to the left arm.  The paper isn’t as distressed and hopefully I won’t abuse it as much.

As fun as this is….I know that it’s not exact, and yet….I continue sketching.  I guess with time and practice my “detail drawing” will get better.  Wouldn’t this be so much more interesting if this was done in colored pencils!  THAT is what I really want to learn!  If anyone has any good advice or links along that line, do share Open-mouthed smile

She’s not finished yet:
  • Needs shoes
  • More front leg shadows
  • Arm band details
  • ?? right arm SOMETHING
  • Hair shadows

She's coming along nicely! Don't be so hard on yourself! What do you do with your finished sketches? Do you hang them on the wall???

Deb, you're such an ENCOURAGER and I thank YOU!! Yep, I put them in black frames and put them around in the "study"....computer room. It makes me happy! I do enjoy doing this, and it would be best if I started doing this for others! Nobody's asked yet! Haha

I wanted to thank you too, the comment you left on my blog a few days ago.

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!
