Here is my first ever attempt at drawing myself and a cute appendage. The source was a photo from a couple of years ago. To those of you who know me in the flesh - Yes - I did *so* look that much younger back then! ;-)
I used charcoal on purple paper (which I 'borrowed' from my children's craft paper pile) to sketch this picture.
Can't say it really looks like me, but I had to start somewhere!
I'd say I probably spent around 20 - 30 minutes on this study. I primarily wanted to see if my drawing skills were slowly and steadily improving. At this point, I think I kind of look human, which is an improvement on some of my "life" drawings that I attempted earlier in the year. I think I might try and draw this picture again in a month or two, to see how I develop. Until then... Onwards and upwards, right?!
