Please, No More Plaid

Okay so I have never been very good at drawing plaid. I can't decide if I like how this one turned out, but maybe since it's a more simplistic plaid pattern I like it. I don't know.

The Fragments of a Fade

I started this one and then a new couple sat directly in front of me. I liked the simplicity of this one so I posted it despite the faded lady partner and the total lack of detail.

The Floral Maze

There were a lot of interesting patterns going on with this one. Her blouse was more intricate than I was able to re-create but I liked it and the volume of her hair too.

Merry Christmas, Tiny Tot

My mother sent me this adorable picture and I decided that I had to draw it. I especially love his big head and his short little legs. Also the branches of the tree are my favorite.

A Bouquet of Hot Pink

I think this might be one of my favorite drawings. Her hair was tied up in this hot pink mesh-type material and her dress was quite bright too. I love this one, but would have loved to get the color out on the paper.

Rolling River Adventures

-This was drawn on a very bumpy truck, full of nervous rafters (ok, I was the only nervous one) and rafting boats about to jump into the Nile.

An English Stroll

-Found this picture on the interwebs but can't remember who to give credit to. Sorry. Anyway, I really loved this old man's stance but I wish I tackled the shoulder angles better.

Close Friends on a Twisty Bus

Maddy became close friends with her neighbor. That was before the bus driver started texting and the woman in front started puking...
