Second Post today....

~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 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.

First drawing

Second drawing

Third drawing
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 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....

♥ Hugs! ♥

I'm impressed, Susan! I love the jaunty angle of the head on the third one. I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

I thought the first one was you. Seriously... the girl in the drawing has your hair and everything. I can also see Sarah Liz in the 3rd one. Awesome work... anxious to see how progress.

Susan - I would be so happy to draw like that!! I think the second and third drawings really are very good. I think you should be really pleased with what you've done! Looking forward to seeing more!
