Progress and idea

     I've made some good progress today on my drawing.  Really wanting to post it here, may in fact blow the surprise early ask my models if I may post the work in progress photos here.  Don't know about that though.  I got a lot done on the second figure and based on the coloring I want to rework parts of the first figure's face.  I'll probably go back and adjust some of the colors as I go.  I'm having some trouble with the second figure's eye.  I think it's mostly a coloring/shadow issue, and that can easily be fixed.  I think the eyebrow is a little too high but it will be fine where it is.  I just need to keep working on this, "keep moving forward."
     Also I'm thinking about getting a new sketch book soon, I'll keep my old one for paper.  I can still do some nice polished smaller works on that paper.  I'd like to start a sketch book project of my own and I'd like to have a blank sketchbook to do that in.

Brief Update

I'm so tired, I've done a lot today, though I didn't get everything done I would have liked to.  I did work a little on my drawing, and I have plans to contact the models about posting their likeness online.  So hopefully soon I'll be posting some updates with their permission.  I think I need the motivation of posting to get me back into working.  Of course I also have the motivation of some new work I want to get into.  I even plan on working on some sketches for one new piece.  There are still some details I want to work out, like media, dimensions and a few other things and I think sketching will really help.  I kind of lost the light when working on my drawing, I've really been needing to work in natural light with it.  I didn't get started until late today.  Tomorrow I'm hoping to start earlier and get a bit more done.  The sketching I might try tackle soon though.
