I was stuck for a week on this person’s shirt print.
Received a bit of direction and started on the pattern in the easiest way I knew to portray. Yes…Yes… the picture shows more blue…but there is a bit of green in there so I’m not totally making this up.
Something did not seem right with his eyes as seen in the image on the left. After I gave the eyebrows more brow….the eyes more shading, and shaded more around the lower jaws…it was starting to look more like the picture.
I’m not ready to frame this yet. I still need to elongate that face. I’m having a bit of trouble with the paper. It’s being a bit per-snickety and not taking the color like I want. May have to see about those ink-tense pencils before I can wrap this up. I’ve heard they carry more pigment than wax. Just may be what I’m looking for. We can only hope!! Haha
Has anyone tried the ink-tense pencils?

- 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!
