    Hahah, NicG! No WAY I'm sick of her! I have way too much to learn from her. I just have other damage to do for a while!

    The final version was great. I want to see her as a 70s chick with bell bottoms. Groovy.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Ah, Grandma! I'm beginning to be really busy. Might be more than a week before I can update. Life's what happens when you're planning other things!

    It's my stepson's birthday soon, and I want to do a portrait of his daughter for him.

    These are the best of the preliminary sketches I've done, and the second of the two is the closest likeness, but it's still a ba'-hair off .... *sigh*

    She looks a handful; it's that mischievous glint in her eye that's begging to come out and play. Bet she's fun to have around.

    How are you?

    Nanana Banana

    Eight sketches later and I've got a closer likeness. Her right eye is slightly off, but fixable. This is the toddler from way back in my sketchbook.

    She's twelve now, so there's a bit of a difference, and, yes, Black Spot; she was a bit of a rascal as a toddler!

    Kelly haven't even started on the yellow overtones. Teeth are only white in Hollywood, and I'm nearer Holyrood!

    I'm with so any of the ladies here... there's a difference between reality and showtime.

    Oops! I seem to have given her a nasty squint! Better fix that before her father sees it! Need to wait until it dries first, though... it's impatience gave me the problem in the first place...

    I know what you mean about impatience, Alesoun...

    She's looking really good though.

    At least most of the graffiti is artistic. Maybe if all blank walls were labelled 'artistic' this or that it might improve the level of graffiti.

    Where highlights are on the eyes makes the difference between a squint and looking into your soul. Maybe this is why I keep drawing people with their eyes shut.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    alesoun, you've done really good work on her! Quite a likeness, I would say! Even though I didn't see the original photo or anything, you're so accurate now!

    I notice possibly her left eyebrow and the top of her nose, and her left ear all seem to be leaning more left. That could be me seeing things, but yeah. Still, I wouldn't bother with those things now, you've come so far! O_O

    Think I'll call this finished

    I'm not getting too fussy about the shirt because I want the focus to be on the face. That said, I'll probably decide in a few days that it needs more work, so all crits welcomed...

    Looks great alesoun! For a suggestion, you could try softening up her features a little (like the lines under her cheeks and around the chin) to make her look a tad younger, but it looks great as is.

    I think you've caught her face pretty well. I'd put some hair over the ear on the right as we're all vain and it sort of sticks out a bit. Flatter the client and get return business.

    It's stepson's birthday tomorrow, so this really is it! Worked in some more yellow ochre.

    Black Spot, when she was a baby, all his friends called her "Wing nut"

    Her face is going to change so much in the next year or two, from child to teenager...

    Mind you, to be on the safe side, I'm also giving my stepson a painting he has seen before and likes.

    With that smile who cares about her ears. I'm sure the family will cherish the picture for years.

    He liked it... I'm still alive (even though as soon as I handed it over I saw exactly where I'd been going wrong!)

    I've been run ragged by work and other stuff this past week, and probably will be for another day or two. I doodled this, thinking I wouldn't have time for the Halloween CHOW...

    ... but now I see it's a two-week chow, so, if I get enough free time on Saturday, I might try for real.

    She served as a WREN in WW2. She's the size of a sparrow, and feisty as they come. Wonder if I can do her justice?
