There! It's fixed now.

And finally I got a hold of the one I drew for my grandma. This is her when she was 15 years old. It is the third drawing of a person I ever did.

I think you're getting better all the time and the more you practice the more you're going to improve
I wouldn't want to make suggestions for change because that can lead to people losing their own style and thats something you should perfect yourself
When I was at Art College we had a tutor who would have had us all drawing imitating his style and losing our own individual look.
Unless you want to go into forgery thats probably not a good course to follow - though someone in the UK fooled top experts for quite a long time with some incredible forgeries a few years ago - sadly ended in s prison sentence!!!

Thank you, jaydee. And that makes perfect sense; I think I'll skip forgery!

I took a break from drawing for a month or so for some reason. Guess I just lost my mojo for a little while! But it came back and now I have drawn a couple of pictures. So here they are.

This one is a sketch for a member here on HF.

This is a drawing of a friend, which I did for her specifically.

And I'm about to draw an adorable little baby in a Santa hat! It's been a long time since I've done a baby, so I'm looking forward to it.

Its nice to see you are back into your art work and still producing some nice pieces
I have to say that I get into that same mental block thing and still have two unfinished paintings from last year that I lost direction with
Oh well - the snows arrived in full force so maybe that will inspire me to get going again!!!

Ok, I got a minute. that painting is one of the first commissions I did on HF. Still one of my favorite pieces.

Over time, I tend to get tighter and tighter and tighter, and I dont' mean this in a good way. I started out painting really loose and "fresh". And that's what was what was "my" style. over time, I got so wrapped up in getting the details just right, that I now struggle to keep the "feel" of a drawing.

but, this is not meant to be a critique of ME. why I mentioned it is that I see a really nice freshness and freedom to your style that I personally find very appealing, and I had at one time and hope I wont' entirely loose over time.

You aren't desperately worried about exact accuracie. you are ok with drawing a line that's a little wobbly, and drawing a correcting line right over the old one and letting them both exist in the same space. and you use line that is in a variety of motions; some horizontal, some vertical, some heavy, some squiggly. your drawings look like they are just caught in a moment of action; freeze framed, instead of having been created in a solid , stolid stillness, as if they were a statue. Get what I mean? I even like the way you have the writing going around the edges and are not overly concerned that it's all perfect and squared up.

I would suggest that you do take care about how the writing sits in the blank space around the main figure. You don't wnt to take up all the blank space. White area is important. So, don't have your white space all used in a very even way; use some for lettering and leave some to balance all the activity of the drawing. AND, good lettering is essential. I am very bad at lettering, so in the few cases where I have had it in a drawing I have asked my friend , who does caligraphy, to do it for me. If you do it, even if the style is "squiggly" do it well, conisistent sizes and spacing and lined up well. If it isn't , then it must look like its' INTENTIONALLY done this way and not just you being lazy or sloppy.

Teh way you did the hands on the last one, the girl, is perfect! not too much, not too little. this is why I think you have some talent. Hands are hard to do.
