Vitruvian Man…manifests


So…I got to thinking….that if I really want to continue with figure drawing, that I really should take on the opposite sex.  I remembered this da Vinci sketch, drawn almost 500 yrs ago.  And I thought….ok….why not….not much hair, a definite plus!

Drew out the contour first….like usual.  If I could I would’ve showed you my first attempt here…..he had gorilla proportions….seriously!  (I didn’t have to erase the legs but my, did I do a number on his shoulders!)

I’d prefer to go in and sketch this…but what is there to sketch?  It’s a line drawing.  Ugh!  So, I am now thinking I’ll go in and whimsey-size it.

I look forward to your sketches, doodles & your blog every time you post. LOVE the beautiful quilts you've made. Such beautiful colors & designs. I can't sew a stitch except for some mending & even that's terrible.
Thanks for sharing.

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!
