Today I decided to break out my long lost easel and try to make my hands remember how to draw. It has been a loooong time since I have pulled out my charcoal and it was obvious too. I printed out a couple pictures of the kids that I planned on using for a piece. I took them with the intention of portraying a spiritual message. See if you get anything out of them. These warm up drawings are what I came up with. I can tell that Ethan's portrait was the one I started on because my strokes were tighter and I wasn't as warmed up and relaxed as I was when I started Kiera's. Hopefully the next time around I can smooth things up and make my lines a bit more defined. I really need to be drawing more because I can tell that I am loosing my touch quite a bit. My mom has been pushing me to draw and today I finally took her up on it. This is for you mom. Below are the pictures I took of my work. Hopefully there will be more in the NEAR future.
