~Gasp~....two posts in one day! I've not been sitting around doing nothing. For some reason, I decided to try my hand at sketching. These are a few of the sketches I've done in the past week...definitely NOT professional art by a long stretch, but I amazed myself. I've never been able to draw much more than a stick figure...and now I've drawn something that actually looks like a person!! I did watch a few "how to" videos on YouTube....how to draw an eye, etc. For drawing, I used a regular #2 pencil and (did some shading) blended some of the lines with a blending stump.
I will always be my own worse critic, I know. Although these are definitely more than stick figures, they still didn't turn out real enough for me. The first two, I was just drawing....no one specific in mind. The third drawing was done by looking at a photo of my niece, Sarah. While it does resemble her (slightly), it still isn't "right". For some reason, I always get the eyes too big...face too fat...and nose a little crooked!! LOL! Isn't there a saying about "practice makes perfect"? Guess I need some more practice!
Who knew?! So...I might just pursue this a bit further and see if there's any real talent to be found. I did enjoy piddling with the drawings,
Okay...I think that's all from me today. Gotta get busy and get something done around here! Thanks a bunch for stopping by! Comments or critiques definitely welcomed...just be kind to this "budding" artist! LOL!
Until next time....
