29 FACES DAY 25

Hi Everyone!

I can't believe it is Sunday already. I am trying to get things done around here to day so I can get an extra drawing done for 29 Faces. I will be taking DH to the doctor on Tuesday and that is an all day drive and ordeal. LOL  So that is my plan for the day. I will see how it works out.  Here is my day 25 for 29 Faces. Thanks to Martha from Ayala Art for hosting.

29 FACES DAY 23

Hi Everyone!

Holy Moly another crazy busy day and I am posting late in the evening for 29 Faces. I got him done though. The lighting in my house is NOOOOTTTT good at all so this photo is not great. However, I think you get the idea of what I drew.
Have a great evening.

29 FACES DAY 18

Hi Everyone!

Most of you know that I am a novice at drawing. Even though I remember some of the tip and techniques my grandmother taught me, I am still a baby at drawing.  So today's attempt is very much out of my comfort zone.  Not the subject, I am the scary movie watching queen. LOL Just getting the proportions right.  I think I did pretty well. So another photo taken from google and making it my own.  Thanks to Martha from Ayala Art for hosting 29 Faces.

I was so intent on this I forgot to take step by step photos.

29 FACES DAY 17

Hi Everyone!

My energy is zapped today. A side effect of lupus. The last few days have been an energy struggle and today, well let's just say after I post this I am off to take a nap. :)

I had a bit of trouble with the eye on this girl, but it is what I have today. Also I am still right on time with the 29 Faces challenge.  Thanks to Martha from Ayala Art for hosting.

29 FACES DAY16

Hi Everyone!

Day 16 of 29 Faces and I am finding everyday easier to make a face for this challenge. Today is a man I found on the internet and fell in love with his face. When DH saw the drawing he mentioned the dent in his head. I told him that is the way his head is. :)

TRICK TO DRAWING THE HUMAN EAR

Hi Everyone!
  I have had a lot of requests on my trick for drawing an ear.  Now, most of you know I am quite the novice, so this is  a trick that works for my dyslexic brain. lol  NOTE as I stated in a previous post this is NOT my idea I found this on line.
The thing to remember is there are variations to each ear, however the basics are these.  If you look at the human ear the entire outside line  is a big cursive letter capital C with a smaller C just inside to form the base of the ear.  Inside the ear is a small letter y. For the hole of the ear is another letter C with a hook and a bump on it.  Once I saw where the lines go I started looking at human ears. Every ear is like that no matter the shape or size. 
 Once you have these then it is all a matter of shading.  I hope this helps you as much as it helped me.
