Back to the Sketchbook

Sketchbook_08_09

It’s been a long time since I’ve just played around in my sketchbook.   I forgot how fun it is to just scribble and hack away without any real attachment to the outcome.   I had spent some time working on an ATC for a self-portrait swap.  It just wasn’t working .  The drawing was okay, but I didn’t capture myself at all.   I  was suddenly just so fed up!   I needed to relax and loosen up.  There was nothing left to do but grab a few pens and my book and just cut loose on the page.  The results were surprising–and pleasing.

  2. definitely some nice sketching! Keep up the good work! Cutting loose has its merits…

  3. Your sketch is lively and shows a great deal of insight and humor. Looked at some of your other work as well. Seems we both have a fondness for crows. Well done!

    Thanks. It’s nice to just feel my way through a drawing. Sketching can be so liberating.

  5. Great self-portrait, Mellanie! I hope to draw self-portrait of me too!
