My first Goddesses!!
One of my goals this year is to learn new things. And to share myself with the world. I was salivating over Suzi Blu's paintings and drawings and kept watching her Blu-tube videos. That is one funny AND inspirational woman! I have a link in the sidebar if you want to check out her "Le Petit Academy". I took the plunge and signed up for "The Goddesss and the Poet" class. I want to draw pretty faces too! Well, I'm on Lesson One where we are learning the composition of faces and shading technique. I won't bore you with my gray scale (trust me, it's fabulous! hehe) but here, for your viewing pleasure are my first three Goddess faces. I am actually pretty happy with them. The one above is the very first face I drew using the template she gave us. (For you non-believers, NO it is not TRACED!!!!!)
I tried to make the next Goddess a little smaller so she would fit into the Moleskine sketchbook we're going to be painting in. But after adding her hair she's still too big. But I love her anyway. I gave her a little head adornment.
My floating face Goddess. I need to figure out how to make better hair. Once I figure that out she won't be a bald floating head Goddess anymore. I do love her face though.
