By the time you are reading this I will be in Eugene at the cancer center. ehh... a blood disorder left over from last year. I am NOT worried about it at all. (That seems weird)I'm just going with the flow. It's a Giant platelet disorder, also known as macrothrombocytopenia,
a rare disorder featuring abnormally large platelets,
thrombocytopenia and a tendency to bleeding. Giant platelets cannot
stick adequately to injured blood vessel walls, resulting in abnormal
bleeding when injured. Also 20 to 40% of people with SLE (lupus) have this disorder.
As I have mentioned before, this year, I am not allowing health issues to take over my life. No worry, no stress, only positive energy for me. I will let you know what they say.
OK on with the show.
I have been busy and lazy at the same time. My drawing today took literally 5 minutes. I have a hard time with side views but this seems OK. I can sketch very fast, droping in the features then a bit of shading. When I do take some time the faces are much better. LOL
Boy this is a mess.
A friend on FB ask to show a photo of when we were in our 20s. Yep, that's me. On my day off from my real job, selling house plants at the market. It actually brought in some good money.
Here is the above description from AI. I couldn't get AI to make this outside. But I like the fun of it.
Now I know most of you have seen my portrait art. However, I want to show/remind you that I really do know how to draw. This is an older piece.
I have this hanging on my wall and the hair is fixed better. LOL
Sketing and shading
I do like this face.
I do work all over the face. I rarely start with the eyes like most portrait artist.
I think that's it for now. Wishing all of you a happy Friday.
