Challenge to cure the lazy

Postby cerninous » Sat Oct 15, 2011 10:31 am

Man, have I been lazy. But, I've been inspired by some friends to fix that by trying to draw something every day and since I always find myself gravitating towards portraits I will try to make it a portrait a day. While I'm at it, I hope to expand my horizons a bit and try mediums that I'm not too good at, like ink, watercolour, oils, etc.

Here's where I start (though it was finished yesterday and I'm just now posting it)

And Here's today's sketch. I remembered to switch my scanner back to colour this time.

Not quite the level of likeness that I'd prefer, but still works as a drawing.

No bad. I particularly like the little girl, the one right after it, and the last one.

I like that the line work in them have a "lighter" touch. Have you thought about throwing a sheet of tracing paper on top and cleaning other sketches up with the same light touch?

Thanks emceeONE. I have not though about doing much of anything with them, but that does sound like a good idea. I've noticed that my lines get heavier the more I try to "fix" the drawing as I go, 'cause I tend not to use an eraser. I probably should since I am using pencil now instead of a bic like I use to.

Here's today's

Was away from home for most of the day and forgot my blue pencil, but here is yesterday's sketch.

There's the likeness. Though, from a different photo.

Weird angle and lighting, but the only decent photo I could find of her.
