"Look Ma, no pencil!"

When I draw I tend to lean heavily on my addiction to pencil/eraser.  However, I've recently read more and more blogs by artists I admire that never use pencil - they just wing it. So I got brave and tried it out myself and Look!!  She's cute - go figure!

She's really cute! I too love my eraser, but I'm not brave enough to let it go...

I love the strong graphic feel of this portrait. I love pens, but I have to admit I usually start with a very basic outline in pencil to get my proportions right. Therefore, I admire your gutsiness. Blessings!

She's definitely cute, has a strong expression! Great that you stepped out to find newer methods of drawing!

She is awesome! I love the way the line is strong. Is that a zebra pen?

I completed an independent study a few semesters back where my art teacher encouraged me to "throw away" my eraser as I too leaned too much on it. It's scary at first but it's also refreshing, too. Wonderful job, Michele! :)

Yes, she is lovely! A good work you've done here! I always need an eraser too, but you now managed without! :)
