Well I did it. It’s my first drawing in over 15 years. Strangely I started playing with my new Wacom tablet, had problems, became impatient, and switched to pencil and sketchbook. What started as a doodle turned into a portrait. Hmm, I wonder who it could be… I’m still having a lot of trouble with the eyes and some proportion problems but this is a first effort.
To keep me honest and stop from overdoing and then trashing it (that’s what I tend to do), I’ll post it here. (Sorry about the image quality. The scan washed out the midtones, so I took a snap with my iPhone.) If you can’t see the image, the link is here.
I want to thank Zelda Thornton for inspiring me to draw again. Well, and also a certain RA.
ETA: This is my final version with scanner.
