I cringed when Dude said the next pose was profile. I looked at that crazy single line of the nose and chin and thought “that’s never going to look right”
Again, following the directions, and taking one step at a time it was not that hard. Here it is darkened, but before I took out the guidelines
I am still an epic fail with the hair. I look over at my son and see these awesome elaborate hairdoos, and I have to stare at a picture and draw the lines exactly as the book tells me to place them. I just can’t fathom how the odd lines play out into the shape of hair.
Dude thinks it’s because he reads and watches manga, so he’ used to looking at it. Could be.
Here’s the finished product. Not to shabby. I’m actually pretty pleased with this one.
Dude wants me to start “inking” which means finishing a drawing, and then drawing over it with permanent artist’s markers.
Ummmmm. No. I’m not there yet. I’d be pretty ticked at myself if I drew something I liked, and then I screwed it up with a permanent marker.
“Believe in yourself, ” Dude says. Ummm, maybe next week.
