Amanda


Been busting my butt all week (Mondays are my Sundays) trying to get all my assignments in for class. This week we did portraits and facial studies, and I took complete advantage of my poor daughter, Amanda. She posed for all kinds of pictures while she was just absolutely miserable with the flu. Don't know what I'd do without either of my kids! Eric posed for some too, but Amanda went out of her way to let me do whatever needed to be done to finish my homework. The picture here is my finished final assignment. It's a bit stylized, but it is finished. All I can say, is that the professor had better be kind... This is only the 4th portrait I have ever drawn, and the others weren't very good! Hideous would be a better word. Anyway, here is a toast to all artist's muses, wherever they may be!

the shading is so lovely... there are places where the contours in her face are so incredibly dimensional and lovely... i am just loving the shadows... her eyes are so soft and vulnerable looking... one can't help but fall into them...

you both get an A++ as far as i'm concerned...

Thanks everyone! You don't know how much better that makes me feel. The professor gave me a B- on this drawing and a ten minute audio lecture on what was wrong with it... But then, he never has a lot to say that is positive, so I try not to take it to heart ~~ very much! Hey, I need practice, please send me pics to draw. I'd appreciate it!
