I was in a sketchy sort of mood this weekend. It's been a while since I sharpened the old pencils, but I decided to give into the urge, so I grabbed an HB, an eraser and a few sheets of paper and headed for the dining room table while it was just me and Frodo.
Oddly, Frodo showed no interest in my presence at all until I began drawing. Then he decided it would be a fun thing to crawl all over the old man. I was literally drawing with one hand while I played with Frodo with the other. The result wasn't terrible.
It's a drawing of Elder, based on an old school photograph. It's actually the second sketch I did that day. The first one turned out looking like Alfred E. Neuman. It sort of looks like her. I left out the hair due to 1. Frodo, and 2. I suck at drawing hair.
I can trace my inspiration to start doing a few sketches to a YouTube channel I found a few weeks back called The Portrait Art. He is really, really good. Here's a few of my favourites.
I really, really, want to get some black paper and chalk pencil and try a few drawings like these.
