I missed a row of shading and kept going. I made the first arrow point in the wrong direction and kept going. My pen ran out, the new one’s tip wasn’t worn making it a larger line and I kept going. I replaced my desk lighting with an LED bulb. Now I can see and now I have to start this one over. Doesn’t look like much but that’s 4 days of drawing.
In the last week or so I’ve had several conversations about what we do with our art piles, one here the other here. Some get thrown away as seen here and here. I don’t think much of my drawings, they’re only to practice or learn from. I just throw everything I’ve ever done so far in two Amazon boxes I keep in a plastic crate on my shelf. I can’t even remember ever looking back at them for reference. Now that I’m thinking about it, I never did finish the alphabet I started on. But here’s my pile, at least it’s neatly stacked and possibly in the same order as completed.
The picture is at a bad angle, it’s really deeper than it looks. It’s about 10″ deep in the boxes.
The background started as the main point of interest. The weave took me several days only to have it ruined by drawing crap on top of it. If I wouldn’t have added color it might not have turned out so bad. Expect the weave to show up again in another drawing.
the edges were cut off when I used my scanner. Here’s a photo of a picture.
here’s the scanned image to see the detail
This has sat around a few weeks. Wasn’t sure where I was going with it. The basic layout is done but I’m not sure how I’ll finish it yet.
