Clearly Contrast

Apparently I had an aversion to shading during this drawing. Everything is sharp and maximizing contrast. I like his hair and shirt and I feel like there was potential for cool things with her hair but I did not take advantage of it! Oh well.

Bye Bye, Bic

I feel like I reached new levels of color-depth with graphite in this sketch. Maybe it was a new pencil...something fancier than Bic (sorry Bic). The rest of this sketch is just eh for me because I couldn't get the proportions of his head right.

Give Charcoal a Chance

Okay, so I didn't actually use charcoal for this drawing, but it came out extra graphite-rich and I like it. It was a quick sketch and sort of awkwardly positioned but I like the patterns in his Adidas shirt.

Attack of the Photobombing Laptop

For some reason my favorite part of this is the photobombing laptop. Maybe it's the perspective or depth that is added--it just made this drawing a bit more interesting for me.

The Dragon's High Top

Love her hair so much and I love the remnants of pencil that scatter around her high top. Kinda wish I finished the shading, but maybe the absence of shading makes other features pop...like her dragon-scaled scarf.

A Walk Down Memory Pew

Definitely not my favorite drawing but I was back in California so I can't hate it. Maybe adding more depth would make me like it better...or maybe not.

So apart from the smudge, which is a result of taking so long to post these pictures, I like this one. So many different people in awkward perspectives. #classicgroupselfie

The Candy Striping Cartoon

Wish I had finished this one and either filled in the back or left the big section white. Also what's with this one looking real cartoon-like? I don't hate it.

Flickering Fingers

I feel like I never draw hands! Check out how these suckers just crept onto her arm. I accept. Sorry buddy on the right, you're not my favorite part of this sketch.

A Proportionate Partition

I like the random curves in the shirt, but the sections of shading that separate his hair are my favorite.

The Glossiest of Bobs

This is no exaggeration of how glossy her hair looked. I'm a tiny bit impressed that it came out so well.

Scaled and Wispy Fissures

Pretty sure this was just a regular braid, but it came out in scales. Scales with wispy fissures. I like it.
