Inward Dive….Bend




I was on a sketch roll and continued on with the legs.  It’s always a bit of a learning curve if I put my pencils up…then sit down again….I have to figure out how to match the color combinations….you know, so that the upper leg looks like it belongs with the lower leg on that same person.





I am not getting the swimsuit at all!  It’s looking very jagged!





This poor diver has more ribs than she needs….will have to tone down that ribcage.  I did go in with my markers on the blue/red portion of the suit and to separate the legs.  Always makes the color-sketch look better when the markers are applied…IMHO (in my humble opinion).

I think YOUR sketch of the diver's swimsuit looks BETTER than the actual picture!!! IMHO :)

I admire your work very much!

Thanks for sharing!

This is amazing! I am always in awe of how beautifully you capture skin tone and muscle density. You drawings look more lifelike than the photos!

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!
