Portrait Pose….Rendering

Adjusting, applying, and re-arranging.  This is different.  I’m really winging the clothes….I don’t much care if the folds are exact…just that they imply what they are supposed to.  Haha

I think I’m still in my Desktop View mode.  One of my favorite views!

I learned awhile back NOT to use graphite pencils to outline my figures when doing a color-sketch.  No matter how light the graphite…the lead will leach into the surrounding areas.  Just better to avoid it all together.

I am still amazed at how many different colors there are in a specific solid piece of clothing….orange is not just orange, ya know…..those folds split that light beam apart.  Who would’ve thought those shadows had that much purple?  Haha…purple my most neglected personal color!  I really should start to appreciate all it’s benefits because it is everywhere!

@JP- I really don't have a lot of original clothing ideas...I'd make a lousy designer!

@Deb- gotta love that Artistic License, huh? Possibly if I applied more wax I wouldn't notice the graphite. Bonus, I'm able to erase the colored pencil lines...if not applied to thick.

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! And if you're really curious there's a 3 part Interview by Eileen: HERE All the best, Eden
