Dr. Who


As my art professor would say; 'Practice, Practice, Practice.
Exactly what I need to do to get this guy right.
But that's what I am doing. . . .I wanted to show a WIP . . . the picture is not quite right.


This is a pencil drawing.  He's a bit too somber and looks too much older than he is in real life.

Please take a look at all the talented artists on Paint Party Friday.  Each week we all come up with a different piece of art and it is exciting and interesting. 

Blessings,
Janet

  2. I like the looks of him. I make everyone look older than they are. I agree about practice! If only that it makes me draw looser and with more ease, less tension. HPPF!

  9. Great job. I think it's an interesting sketch in its own right, whether it looks exactly like the person or not.
