    It took me ages to figure out what color scheme to use to color my friend's commissioned portrait of her grandmother! I was originally going to go with regular colors, but then I was like... "What am I doing? This isn't me! This isn't what I do!". She wouldn't have commissioned me to do a photo realistic portrait of her grandmother! Bring on the color!!

    YEAH!! Just splash that paint on there and go crazy and have fun and you'll find your niche on this one. You're doing great so far, I see. Remember to push those values.

    Do not judge this piece at this stage. It just isn't coming together like they usually do! Ack. Not 100% sure why, but maybe because it's a commission? I might have to start over... We'll see, one more day to see if I can get this going in the right direction. If it doesn't seem to be working out, I am starting over!! Portraits really never take me this long! A few hours at most!! This is going ... badly.

    Really loving my gestures today. Getting these action poses are really helping I think!

    This, however, is not going well. I am going to be changing colors. I do not "feel" her in these colors. So, blah. Everything else is fine tho...

    Very cool colours, that! We're getting a great emerging of general proportions, features, and expression-- But! ZOMBIFIED.

    So, my suggestion is to bring in some oranges and reds to warmify her nose and cheeks. Stuff that's getting light shining on it.. Hope it all works out! Looking great so far!

    Ahh yes! This is going so much better now. After I had a talk with my friend about WHO her grandmother was, and what kind of feeling she gave. Warm colors suit her the best! I am so happy with where this is going now! Still a ton to do. I am actually pretty surprised that I am not done with it yet... Portraits usually do not take me very long. I thought I was being sly, and doing this portrait before doing my dog's character, because I thought I would get done with this a few days early and have extra days to study for drawing a dog! haha. Too bad. Ah well. learning lots!

    I really love using color in my gestures. It makes me super happy. I remember when I was taking a beginning art class for architecture in uni, we were to do many blind contour line drawings. I would always use color. And I would always get verbally reprimanded for doing so. I never stopped tho. I had to keep my attention on it, somehow.

    It is getting so frustrating that this just isn't going as well as my portraits normally do! It's so weird. Her spirit must be here, making me mess up or something. Lmao. Or making me internally nervous. I don't know, but I wanted to be done with this already! Ah well. i still think it is coming along fine. I am liking where I am going with the hair. Things keep changing in the face, I keep wondering what on earth is going on. I think it is harder because the photo I am drawing from is old, and not 100% clear or detailed. I think that makes it pretty difficult. I may have to add in some things like eyelashes to make it look right...

    Wow, looking magnificent! I don't see why you'd get reprimanded for using colour. If anything, that would really enhance the gesture.

    As for the portrait-- I really hope you don't think me rude, but I was suddenly inspired to play with it, with that ol' tutorial I found. I think it just needs some brightening up? I don't know about cool colours, but I dabbled a bit.

    Maybe it doesn't improve it at all, or anything, but I thought maybe it'd help to get a fresh look at it.

    I appreciate your trying to help, but there's a specific way I am going about it, for the person who asked me to do it. I am just still in process. Thanks. Also, there's no direct light in my reference photo so white just isn't the right way to brighten it up. I am using a reference photo, so I am trying to capture it wit more fun colors.

    Oh, okay, cool! And I didn't use white. I used bright, cool colours, like aqua, light purple, and yellow. I thought maybe it'd help to make it pop. I think I went a little overboard though.

    Even if there's no direct light in the ref, I figured that since you're playing around with it and giving it an impressionistic look anyway, that it'd be okay to use some 'artistic license', haha. But, if you've got specific instructions, probably best to do that. Sorry about being intrusive, hehe.

    Started a new challenge today! Animal Anatomy for at least 30 mins a day for 100 days! I am excited to see if I can keep up with all of these challenges together. Today did not feel overwhelming at all, I think that's a good sign!

    YAY! It is FINALLY going in the right direction. It took ages! I am so happy with how it is looking today. I hope I can finish it fast!! I am so happy with it. I think the hair is going to be really challenging when I get to it. I was going through and flipping between yesterday's and today's, and it is just going so well today. The features are really popping out better, and things seem to be coming together! Yay!

    Wow, beautiful work, Addy. That portrait's coming together before my eyes! She's gonna see herself as a real firebird.

    Animal sketches are adorable-- And your imagination anatomy has really improved! Keep at it Let's see some more studies! Ooh, and value studies too.

    I am doing 3 challenges right now. Lol. Human anatomy, animal anatomy, and the personal project challenge. Whew. It's a lot of work but really rewarding. Thanks for noticing my imagination studies! I noticed that have been becoming a bit better too!

    Yeah, the portrait is going pretty well. It's my friend's grandmother (a young photo of her). I am working on toning down the oranges, I think. We'll see how it goes. I let the colors just tell me what to do. lol

    Please, just call me "A" if you want to shorten my name.

    It seems to still be going pretty well. Ran out of energy and time today as Saturdays are my errand running days. I was like, running around like a chicken with no head for hours today. It's so tiring. And now it is nearly 2am, I am too old to be up this late!

    The colors (oranges) are a bit bright, I think I will be toning them down a bit. I kind of just go wherever the colors lead me... lol.

    LMS Anatomy 147-161

    So on day 156, my husband and I were on our way to a doctor's appointment and our car broke down. Ugh. Total disaster. Anyway, that was the first day that I didn't draw! Otherwise, I have been drawing every day for 161 days. Man. I can hardly believe it.

    Lots and lots and loootts of effort and studies... It's really great to see this kind of dedication. I'd recommend doing some value studies. Your portrait is coming along, if slowly. But, we all run into projects where we hit a plateau. We just have to be creative and find different ways of surmounting that obstacle You'll get it!

    Awesome mermaid anyway Just what you need, I think.

    I really like the studies Adrienne! One advice I could give is I think you could do more than one imagination sketch for each study! If you do like 3-6 studies and only do one imagination it's not really expanding what you could potentially do from imagination with those studies! If you wanna get good at imagination bottom line is to draw from imagination a looot and reaching all the way to your limits from what you could do with imagination! Great work and I hope it helps!
