Growing Pains….in the legs

I went in and un-wonky-sized that right knee.  Then I started on the child’s tights.  I think I got a little overly ambitious on that left leg and was able to calm down my sketching on the right one.  (She’ll probably turn out as a half-decent…half-monster child when I finish….it’s taking me awhile to get used to these pencils).

Didn’t spend a whole lot of time contouring her in.  (I may regret that!)

Had to pull the image in thru my ipad to see things a little more clearly.

I just couldn’t help it!!  I had to go in and even out those colored edges around the pink tights, skirt and shoes.  I used my orange, gray, and red microns (01). I’m going to be needing all the colors made of the Sakura Micron 01’s if I’m to continue with colored pencils.  Another excuse to hit the Art Store!! Oh Yea!

About Me

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!
