The Fist

Hand drawing continued

My try

My paper is a 50 lb. weight.
I have been advised to use 
250 lb. weight paper
which is rougher and holds charcoal better

The charcoal I used is a blunt type of material.
I think I need more of a pencil style
for more detail

My Drawing Journey, Part One


Recently I decided to draw everyday at lunch time at work.
I pop in my ear buds, turn up my music and get to drawing.
I want to work from photos eventually I think, that may change.
I will see as I go.
Something parts I drew I felt good about.
When annoyed, I x-it out, or slash through it in disgust.
Most of this is done on my lunch, time flies, I don't want to get back to work.
How good will I get by years end, we will see.
I was kind of nervous doing this in front of people at first.
People do come up to see what I am doing. A few shared that they drew also.

to be continued.

building on face structure

eyes, mouth, lips

flipping through a book
I thought I could draw the drawing

practice, practice

hands must be learned

eyes, hand grasping
