I have learned a very valuable lesson. In order to get better at drawing one must draw a little every day. I hadn't picked up my art journal in months, many reasons why and I decided to the other night. The piece I drew I was very upset with, so I sat down in earnest yesterday and started to draw. So far I am liking her. I plan to shade her in with color pencils and add a background. Here she is so far.
I feel I put her eyes a little too far up, but over all I'm happy. Much better than the drawing from the previous evening...LOL.
If you enjoy art or learning art as much as I do, please check out my friends new site. She's a wonderful artist. http://shwekhit.ning.com/ I'm looking forward to taking her digital art class and plan to take her oil painting class too. Happy creating!!
