You have survived another week. Good for you!
Today I drew a Cheerleader to cheer you on.
This is probably the best full person I have drawn since I took life drawing in college, many years ago. Definitely the best I have done with pen and ink. I think she is quite stiff. The reference photo I used was a girl posing in mid air, she was a bit stiff also. This is also my first drawing of an African American female figure. I was really worried about over coloring the skin. I will have to work on that more so I can have a bit more realism in future drawings.
Everyday that I draw something I come to the conclusion that pen and ink is hard. It takes lots of practice and I would rather paint. The only way to get better is to keep at it. I will become better at painting if I get better at drawing.
I like to think I am getting a teeny bit better every week.
See you Monday!
