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!
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.
