Back to the Drawing Board

This was on the first try!I really should be sketching every day and I have not been.  Today, though, I was inspired to draw my friend Christina so that I could make a cute post about her.  I tried not to over think it and just draw.  I’m really pleased with how it turned out.  It’s not a perfect likeness, but – to me at least – it’s clearly the person it’s meant to be.

I brought it into Photoshop and traced it to a line drawing.  That part was harder than I thought it would be.  I definitely need more practice drawing with my Wacom tablet.  The traced drawing lost a bit of the energy of the original, but I was able to get something I could work with.

And here’s the final product:

I hope she finds this funny.
