Day 32

Continuing with the topic of things you can do with a meerkat, this young girl thought it would be fun to put it on her head! And I thought it would be fun to draw! When drawing, or drawing quickly I try to think about the basic shapes of an object before going into any detail. Such as with the braids, instead of drawing the lines which would have taken a long time, I picked out darker and lighter areas and with the edge of the pencil tip drew erratic lines with varying tone. This is just one of the many techniques I use when drawing, and one that I am trying to perfect. Let me know what you think!
