It’s nice to bring up the image on my monitor to work out some kinks.
The mouth went fairly smooth.
Spooky image here.
I may have to just scratch this sketch on this paper. This is happening a lot.
The colored pencil layers start to flake up….then the paper starts to come up behind it. Joy….
Well, I made some eyes…but they’re not her eyes.
Erased both eyes before I went to class. I had had enough! The instructor showed me a technique to save the piece and we tried it here. He also gave me a huge time saving tip for proportions that I tried out on a different piece.
I’ve since abandoned the Arches paper that I raved about a few posts ago. Apparently that is good for illustrators…print makers. I need a thicker stock.
If I didn’t love this kid so much I would not be starting drawing #3 of the same image.
I only get so much of my instructor’s time, so I went straight to the face! My nemesis!! Didn’t want to waste precious class time on the body and clothes which I can handle fairly well on my own.
I am applying a lighter layer…evenly throughout. Then once I’ve got the image pretty consistent, I can go in and apply more shading…details….and the like. I cannot Wait!! This is getting fun!! Since I’ve taken away the hassle of proportions!

- 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!
