Sketch Week 2

In “Week 2” of sketching I actually had a gap between my last drawing and the next. I finished Week 1 on 10th and then didn’t return until the 20th. I think as long as we always get back on the band-wagon than really you are doing well!

Here’s the sketches from the week!

I decided that it’s time to add some portraiture work into my sketch week. Faces are so important to my work as I do plan to someday soon begin painting children’s portraits in acrylics! (That’s my new acrylics by the way, you know the ones I haven’t even used yet -.-… plus I had the recent discovery of soft pastels and yes now I also want these for portrait work *hits head against wall* I picked the wrong hobby… ART IS EXPENSIVE lol)

This is my friend’s baby, Elias. He’s pretty adorable :3

You can see I am beginning to focus on clothing folds and shadow and light with these last two drawings

My main method for drawing all these figures is actually measuring in headlengths and alligning elbows or chins etc with correlating body parallels. Nothing special.

Onto Week 3 😀
Let’s hope for some gouache or even acrylic painting sketches/studies too!

See you here again, soon.
