Why hello there! Thank you for coming by! This was a tough and busy week with Parent/Teacher Conferences, helping out homeroom teachers with the upcoming International Fair (this is a BIG school event), and also, prepping for our smaller Extracurricular Activity exhibit with is coming up next Wednesday.
Fortunately, I was able to make some time for practicing and these were the results. I posted this first one on Instagram in its beginning stages yesterday, I believe. I am going to be honest and say that I don't really like it too much. After analyzing why (in order to not repeat this mistake), I think it is the fact that I didn't plan and prepare a set color palette. Maybe it's just the fact that I don't like such a large variety of bright colors. I tend to gravitate more towards darker, more muted tones. I did my best to bring it together by using very specific colored pencils for the shadows in all of the different elements and this helped a bit. I'm still not very proud of it, but I am glad that I learned something from the time I invested.
Aside from this, I was able to put in some practice time in my sketchbook to do some realistic eye studies.
I am going to the art supply store tomorrow and I think I am buying a new sketchbook because my current one is almost full!
