This first one is of my good friend Holly Cooper (no relation, probably.) I tried to change things up a little bit for this one and instead of a blank white background I tried to do this... stripey... thing. I'm not really sure how well it works, but hey can't I try something new for a change?
Another architectural one. Pretty proud of the detail and precision on this one.
Random guy I found a picture of on the internet and thought was funny.
I'm trying to do this new thing where I sketch people very quickly. I've been practicing doing the same thing with objects for quite some time and I think I'm getting quite good at it. However, people are more difficult because it is usually pretty difficult to capture their likeness quickly. Nevertheless, it is a skill I want to try to build, as I think it will help my more involved drawings. This one is of my girlfriend (the photo is old, she has short hair now.) I got the body pretty well, but I really had to work to not slow down for the face. It definitely shows, the likeness isn't nearly as close as I would like. But I am going to count it as a success considering that I did it so quickly and that it looks MOSTLY like her. She'll forgive me, I'm sure.
Also, that look she has (the why-are-you-such-an-idiot-look)? She gives me that look all the time.
A quick mountain lion. I really like big cats lately.
And, finally, a cartoon ninja.
Well, that's it for this week. And I would like the record to show that I still haven't gone over the limit of days I set for myself. And I don't plan to. Hopefully you will be seeing another Doodle-A-Day post before another 6 days have gone by.
