Portrait Pose…recognizable

I expanded the mouth…a hair wee bit.  And I tried to imply strands in the hair.  All different colors, all different shapes.

I am not comfortable with hair.  I feel clumsy replicating it.

Pulled out my exacto knife to create hair strands in the colored pencil wax.  Kinda cool effect.

Well…she’s not quite finished.  She’s still very model-ish looking.  And….I still need to work the hair in her part and her crown.  The hand passes, but could use a little more work as well.

And ….most likely…knowing me….To finish it up….I’ll pull out my extra-fine microns to clean up those edges!!  Haha

It is just amazing the texture you have created here in her dress and in her hair. Beautiful work.

I LOVE the wispy feel of the hair and all the different colors you used. Gorgeous! Can't wait to see it when it has your 'Finished' stamp of approval! Hugs! deb

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!
