A quick second posting ... just to show you, I have been busy! Oh yes, I have.
Actually, all the pictures are reversed again. I wish they'd go in in the order I choose them. Oh, I know. I could change them around -- but what the heck.
This first sketch above is a scribble drawing. I was actually working on my full arm strokes and turning my page. Experimenting with different size lines and lighter vs. darker shades. After doing that, I pretty much had a full page scribble, and I saw this pop out at me.
Looking at it now, I wished I moved the nose a little to the right. I made a note on my paper, which is cut out to do that, should I decide to develop it in PSP.
I wrote a note to myself to whittle down the composition. I had drawn my little silly girl below, and I zoomed in on just her eyes. The eyes and just part of her face would be my composition. Like I said, just playing here, and having fun. And hopefully, learning, too.
