From this week's Drawergeeks: Raggedy Ann and Andy. Having no history with the original books, I decided to take a route of making a Gothity Ann.

This is a section of the piece that I am really trying to finish for Christmas. So much to do, so much to learn. This is a big dice roll. I haven't worked to this level of detail with this technique on a deadline. Can you say "bit off more that I can chew?" I thought you could. I would... but my mouth is full.

Page from the sketchbook. The first of the Capistrano mission sketches. There are parts that I like, but over all, it looks like a first sketch, tentative and a bit cautious. Eh, they'll get better. Their prelims afterall. Once the Holidays are over I can get back to pushing to get a series of final drawings done and look for a show. Goal for 2007.

This week's noontime sketch group. Got out the scratchboard again. Had some recent failures with it. Not paying attention to what I was seeing and was just making marks. Dumb. Too worried about the clock. So, I took the watch off, and put the pen down until I was ready to describe what I saw. The result... better. I still need to translate what I see and not what I think should be there. In time.

My drawing of "My Father, The Werewolf." A missed and last attempt at Halloween. Honest this should be the last monster related drawing for... a while. I had a ball with this. The image came really easily this time. I heard the girl's voice speaking a number of phrases to her canine Father.

Wednesday Noon sketchgroup. from 10-25. A group that started long before I got here came up with the Noon sketchgroup. Once a week a model comes in and poses for an hour with a 5 min. break. I have sat once... that was enough. For a fidget first class like myself, it was quite an endurance test. Jim here was a natural.
