This one surprised me at how quickly I was able to draw it. It took approximately 10 minutes to do this. Although its not nearly complete: the tones are minimal and the edges are pretty rough. But it looks pretty good.
It's been a while and I'm not quite sure what number day it is but I've taken a posting break for over 6 weeks. It's time to get back into it and I was given this photo just recently and I thought it was really cool. So, I drew it. After doing the pencil work I brought it some colors and smudged out areas bringing the focal point towards the two siblings. I'm more than pleased to deaden the silence with this drawing.
Practiced some lighting today. I used only one pencil for the entire drawing and am surprised I was able to get it as dark as I did without scratching through the paper. Once I had the graphite down where I wanted it I smoothed it out and developed the soft gradients to wash out any hard lines where the light was more brilliant. Overall I think this turned out rather nice.
