I'm a big fan of process pics. I've taken quite a few recently while drawing my animals for the 100 Day Project and have held them back from social media. Let's dump them all onto this post, shall we?
Many of these pictures I took at the point of thinking "This one really isn't turning out well..." But I kept going and by the end was moderately pleased with the drawings. I've thought that enough times to know that I just need to keep pushing forward and things often (not always) turn out better than I think they will.
So I'll post the process pic(s) followed by the finished sketch. (Click on the thumbnails to view bigger.) Here we go!
That was fun, huh?
You can see sometimes I start with pencil, other times I go straight to ink. It depends on my mood -- if I feel confident and/or pressed for time I forego the pencil sketch.
I'm really enjoying the 100 Day Project this year (unlike last year). I hope to turn some of these sketches into bigger, more polished drawings at some point.
Ransom and I got a zoo membership. so I have a never-ending source of inspiration.
What's your favorite animal to see at the zoo? Mine currently are the seals and mountain goats.
A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
