sketch 39

My friends kid, I want to do a full digital painting of this in the near future.

I actually was having a really hard time getting the likeness, my wife said I was close but I didn't believe her. So I tried twice then got out the tracing paper(no, not to trace the photo) to use my handy tracing paper method. I assume I was getting closer but the next day I couldn't tell which was the most recent drawing. Anyway, once I got in there and darkened the eyes, which I typically wait to do because it is hard to erase if you miss, it looked good. I think I wasn't feeling the likeness because this little girl has big pretty dark eyes and it didn't feel right until they were there.

sketchbook #37

I asked my wife if she thought people would be getting sick of non-stop pictures of my little girl. My wife said no because she is pretty. So once again here is another drawing of my pretty daughter. This one feels pretty good to me, I got away from the sketchbook for a while there and could see my drawings getting sloppy. So I've been back at it and there getting better, just got to get back on that bike.
A couple posts down the drawing was done for a painting so its messy, this is done to look finished.
