Figure 3….Started

Started the third figure.  It’s always best to do a series in odd numbers I’m told and “sets of three” are a very popular quantity.

As is my habit, started on the arms first.

Changed the color of the top from orange/red in the first one to this complementary color, green.  Once I put the green down, the skin tone looked weak.

I’m getting to where I can’t copy the pictures much as I start to shade and color sketch.  I have started to work the color in the arm or the top as it’s being created. The picture is used more as a map than as reality, if that makes sense?

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!
