Inward Dive….looking Back

I thought I had omitted a rib or two….I guess I drew more than I thought.

Color Wheel….a MUST have.  Have I referred to this often or what?  Remember, in colored sketching or painting… we aren’t suppose to use gray or black for shadows.  We are suppose to use color.  If we want a shadow, we have to go to it’s opposite.  

For instance…if I’m using blue….and I need to show shadows, I have to apply orange.  Otherwise, we’d make it all muddy with a gray/ black.  Muddy isn’t pretty!

This ladies back is a bit deformed.  I’ve made no curve in that upper section.  You know, those 7 cervical vertebra.  (Had to look that up…I forgot the name of this portion too).

Rounded that upper back out some (will still need to tweak)…..and gave her some spinal knobs along the back.  Not in the picture but I have creative license remember!  Haha

It’s head time….so I’ll probably avoid this by doing another drawing for awhile!  Tis my habit!

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!
