Yesterday's post featured some face outlines I was working on based on the Pam Carriker's Pursuing Portraits class. I was excited to watch the rest of Lesson One to learn about shading. LOOK at what I made last night and today!!
They are a bit serious looking but I would've never guessed that I had these girls hidden inside me!! Plus, I had no clue that you could do pictures like this with only a pencil and a paper stump. Adding the shading is fun and brings the features to life.
While the same techniques were used on each one they all turned out a bit different - maybe someday when I have more practice I can draw something that has a bit of continuity to it.
This girl has big eyes but reminds me the most of Pam Carriker's style. Caleb said, "Maybe you should take a break from drawing, mom. You've accomplished a lot in two days."
