TG It's Finished!
At last, the second drawing I've not enjoyed doing is now finished. That's two in one week, pretty good for me! I really like the shape of this. It's a wooden souvenir brought back from Bali a few years ago. I'm not sure why I didn't enjoy it but it may be because when I completed the outline I thought it made a lovely line drawing. I should have scanned it then but I thought I'd shade it and maybe like it better - wrong! From then on, it just got more and more tedious.
I had a bit of difficulty with the values in the face. It may be because I'm so used to drawing faces that I couldn't stop thinking of the face as real. So I wanted to make the eyebrows darker, the eyes more lifelike, the hair darker etc. Part of my brain kept overriding what I was seeing!
Anyway, it's finished! HB and B pencils.
