Daily Crapbook: Frankie

This an assignment I've been looking forward to but unable to find time for, until now!  This isn't strictly on point, but I want to play around a bit before I really get my hands dirty.

GirlsDrawinGirls: Cowgirl

For the last couple weeks or so, I've been a bit of a recluse.  Haven't been feeling one hundred percent, and had a big job into which I needed to funnel any scraps of energy I could scavenge.  But I need to get back into drawing every day, a GDG is always good for a bit of inspiration.

Illustration Friday: Fragile

This week's Illustration Friday topic is "Fragile", and the leg lamp will always be the first thig that pops into my mind when I hear that word.

Life Drawing

After an embarrassingly long hiatus, I've stuck my toe back into the life drawing pool.  Its been, in all honesty, very frustrating.  But I know I won't improve by not going, so...there's that double-negative.  Last night's was the first session where I broke out the ol' charcoal and newsprint, and I finally felt less hopeless.  I didn't make any drawings that worked as a whole, but I was at least a stroke or two I felt confident about.  (Oh, and those diagonally shadows across each drawing here are cast by my arm taking the photo.  Charcoal is too messy to put on my scanner, and I don't like any of these enough to bother with fixative.)

Daily Crapbook: Blech!

Had lots of work to do tonight, but with e-mails, notes, and blah blah blah yakkety-schmakkety I turned around and BLECH! It's midnight.
 Also, did I forget to post the #sketchdailies from yesterday?  Oh well.
