Don't know what's going on. It's getting really hard to find the drawing zone. I'm trying my hardest though. Pardon the post...I darkened it to see if the picture would come out better. They were really light cause I'm working on not pressing too hard. I'm feeling more comfortable when I just draw fast then try to fix it fast. I know it's a lot of lines! I know I need to go back to the sharpee....this week is throwing me for a loop. Maybe tonight I'll do that depending on how the evening goes. Anyways, till next time......PEACE!

2nd post of today..

Last nights drawing session didn't go so well. I just didn't feel "It" I did a lot of drawing and crumpling paper up! I should've kept em but in my frustration ripped em up...heehee! I was trying to draw the Incredibles, Shark Tales, and some stuff from the Lord of The Rings. It was some hard stuff.....probably 'cause I caught myself going into detail before I had the foundation down completely. Boy is that a bad habit! I gotsta work on that! Anyways, I'll post when I post! From yearbook..
From Shark Tales.....
From The Lord of The Rings series..

some stuff from 2005....

Camera was acting weird....Anyways, some stuff I did last year. I'm gonna post the stuff I did last night after my camera battery charges.

And the beat goes on....

Last night didn't go as good as I would have liked it to.I had a hard time gettin into the zone.......Scrubs ruined me...heeheeheehee! Actually my hand was cramping up while drawing. I also couldn't keep my pencil as sharp as I would've liked.....but there's no excuses. Kinda frustrated cause I want to be enough to sit somewhere and draw. I know it'll come to me with time.....I'm just being impatient.heehehe Oh well, hopefully tonight will go better...we'll see. Here's to drawing and stickin with it!!! My daughter has been taking life drawing upon herself...hehehee I'm sooo proud of her!!
My warm up exercise mixed up with my signatures....

I'm using my old yearbook as reference........sooo many in there!!

slowly gettin better.....

I drew for about 2 hours last night and definitely did better than usual( and faster!) hehehe I have to admit that I was watching tv while drawing. Probably would have done better had I paid full attention.:) Next time!! Feeling a lot more comfortable. Hopefully tonight will go as well. I plan on crankin it out tonight!!! Anyways, until later........I'm gonna keep it rollin!!! hehehehe

the sharpee...yet again!

Did some work off reference pics on line. Some are gymnastics poses. Bodies that are contorted are very difficult. I also drew some in pencil (which I didn't post) It seems all the stick figures I do are warming me up! I might just start drawing like that......sharpee stick figures and then pick up my pencil and sketch. It seemed too loosen me up quite a bit. I was amazed at how much quicker I was sketchin after words. I'm going to work on that today and try to post by tonight so I can show you a full drawing session. I hope this is another of many small break throughs which I should experience in the up coming month. I can't wait to see the differences I have made. Anyways, till later today ( depending on how the kids are acting today :0)).......keep on truckin Miles!!!!

back to the sharpee...

Well, I was wrong. I was watching football and started sketching. I just want to figure it out!!!! hehehehehe I went back to the sharpee....feeelin a little more comfortable in my sketching stroke, but still far from where I want to be. Anyways, got to go grocery shopping. I might do some sketching and posting later tonight....we'll see. heeheeheeehee

Takin tomorrow off so postin tonight...

I don't know if I'm sketching tomorrow so I'm posting twice to make up for it if I don't. I picked up a Columbia House dvd catalog and did some sketches off it. I also used a pencil and felt soooo much more comfortable. I guess the sharpee is workin!!!!! I'm gonna go back to using the sharpee, I just wanted to see if it was helping. I'm kinda excited about using the sharpee more now!!! I can only imagine what a month of using the sharpee will do for my pencil stroke!! I can't wait!!! I hope pretty soon I'll be taking a life drawing course......I know that would help a bunch too!! I'm just glad cause I know it's all for a cause....the frustration....the anger.....the wanting to'll pay off someday! Oh well, till next time , keep them engines roarin!!!! heeheehee

learnin, learnin, learnin...

Here's what I did last night. Workin on makin circles.....feelin a tad bit more comfortable with my strokes. Damn blue marker. I know when I pick up the pencil again, it'll be a lot easier. I figure I'll stick with the marker until I see a big improvement and then ease back into using the pencil. Hope this helps me! It's a good thing I lovve doin this otherwise I would've quit already. heehehee Oh well.......gotta learn somehow!
