This drawing is so beautiful. I love the movement in her shirt and the wind blowing her hair around. Look at her hair, just gorgeous. I think she might just be done, hopefully I have been able to really capture her . Media pencil/lead with white charcoal

Crazy Time, Sharpening Frustrations, & Bracket Madness

Its been a crazy week. I have barely had time to work on my current project til today. I am still excited at where its going. I have to say this drawing is the highlight to my week and of course my new sewing machine. I am still struggling with soft pencils and my sharpener, I think it is sanding one side down more than another… not exactly sure why. So hoping I won’t be needing a new one. If anyone has suggestions it would be much appreciated. I feel like crying when I lose a pencil due to faulty equipment—just so frustrating.

The low note, bracket-wise Wichita State lost…. Sad to say the least. And even Kansas State lost today. The upsets are making things interesting (with so many #2s losing out).

Hope I get some more drawing time in tomorrow.

Highlights and Sandpaper

I can’t believe how much I was able to do this past weekend. Sadly I did have a white charcoal pencil decide to disintegrate, luckily the others are staying solid. I have started trying to use sandpaper on the really soft pencils to get my point, when the pencil sharpener seems like overkill. Overall I think its really starting to come together and you can see her personality coming through. I have included my reference with the portrait update this time.
