I drew the orchids a while ago, but I didn’t like them enough to post them. But I looked at them today and decided they aren’t bad. More to the point, parts of the picture are good. Other parts? Not so much.
Part of the reason I post these is to track how I’m doing and see where I’m making progress — and where I’m stuck. This is the picture that made me realize that I need to know when to put the pencils down and call it finished. I ruin more pictures by adding one more thing than for any other reason.
After drawing Garry and having him not recognize himself, I decided to try me. I don’t recognize me either. Face is too wide and not long enough. Eyes are too big. Not terrible, but not me. At least the people look human and not like something from a Lovecraft story. Although Lovecraftian imagery might be interesting. Tentacles sprouting from heads and all that.
I should stay with plants. I do well with green!
