Lets keep coloring….Figure 1

Grabbed all my blue colored pencils…and started in on the pants.

Continued on with the arms.  That elbow area can get tricky…..fine line between muddy and shadow.

Totally misjudged the vein…had to bring it up a bit.

Started in on the pattern in the shirt….I’m really wishing it was a solid shirt.  Most likely will resort to “stripe-winging”….makes me dizzy just thinking about duplicating this.

Well….at least the pants look like jeans…..not exactly like the picture….Yes….these are more weathered and worn.  Keeping that creative license handy in case I get asked.

This is amazing. Your shading is phenomenal! I'm particularly in awe of the muscle tone in the upper arm. How long does it take you to finish a sketch like this from beginning to end?

Thanks Molly!! It all depends on how much detail I put in. I would say probably a week, working on it for 2-3 hrs a day. I am not that fast.

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!
