Blondes with Barrettes

Three blonde women with different types of barrettes in the same line of sight? Well, okay I'll draw that.

Disproportionate Satisfaction

Not sure what's happening with his bulging right arm, but I like the folds of his collar and the distinct patterns of his hair. also the typed letters in the background...I like that too.

Big Eyes

Those buttons stared at me the entire time.

Saturated Shadows

Oh man, overcompensation on the shading in this one! I think I like it though. I also like how his little Jansport never came off his back as he so actively listened to the talk. That hair was legit shiny.

The Absence of a Shade

I really like how this one turned out. I think the absence of lines or shadows makes a huge difference. Hey, self, do more drawings like this one.

Bundled Bliss

Not my favorite drawing, but I liked the different elements of her apparel. I definitely could have captured her scarf patterns and hat shadows better. She just looks so comfortable.

Cross-Hatched Corrections

Can we just ignore the weird hair patterns that I added? Not a fan of that. I do like the theme of cross-hatching, however. Also what's with the weirdly placed ear? Also ignore.

Projected Perspective

Sometimes I tackle too wide of a scope and don't get into detail on any of the figures. That's what happened here I think and I just feel eh about it. Maybe I should have written the extra complicated equations on the screen that I was very much ignoring...

Cyclical Sink Holes

I had some sort of psychedelic sink-hole thing going on for this one. I like the shading and movement of his hair and the high definition of his shirt stripes.

Boxing Day

Definitely not my best or favorite drawing...not sure why I made their shoulders so sharp and box-y. I need a re-do.

Detroit for Days

K, so just one day in Detroit, but it was a good one. I like how the landscape of buildings came out, better than I do the actual figures. I'll admit that the figures make a nice addition to the drawing as a whole (thanks for modeling, sisB).

A Study in Symmetry

Stripes, plaid, vertical buttons, patterned hair, and the most symmetrical head of all time. I swear, I had such a hard time tackling the figure on the right. Who knew symmetry could be such a challenge?

Samples with a Smudge

It seems like I sampled three kinds of drawing techniques for the hairstyles--plus a smudge...this is what happens when it takes me 6 months to actually post this drawing. I think I like how the middle figure's hair came out. The twisted hair with little tiny poofs of hair at the end. Precious. The others came out a bit stiff and abstract.
