New competition

I'm excited about this new competition. The deadline is in November so I might be able to submit more than just "Angelic." Like I said before I'm planning to work on some more drawings after I'm done with it, mostly a few quick portraits, then maybe something big again. But also I'm going to be taking a painting class for the fall semester so I might even have a painting done by that time. There are categories for each media, so I might be able to submit to a few different categories. Too bad I suck with pastel... hmm I do want to try out those primacolor pastels and see if I'm any better with those.

Angelic Updates

I'm taking a break for a moment. I've been working on "Angelic" and again I'm getting aggravated. I really hope I completely love this drawing when it's done because I've almost given up several times. I'm working so hard just to finish the body, but I'm not quite sure exactly what I'm doing with the background yet.

Angelic Updates

I've finally found time to get some more work done on "Angelic." I've even gotten some more work done since taking this photo. I was looking at the photo and realized that I needed to darken the chest and arm so it will match the face. I don't have anymore work done on the hair yet. I've erased the hand a few more times it is giving me a bit of a hassle. I'm just trying to find it's perfect position. Basically I'm now using the arm as guide because I'm happy with the placement of the other part of the arm and the chest. I'll let the arm lead into the hand and determine placement from there.
Also since "Angelic" is rather large and taking much longer than originally anticipated to finish, I plan to work on a few smaller drawing after this one. I do have a few portraits I want to do but I think I'll keep the scale down so I can get a more work into my galleries on my site.
