Yeah, so........ this is different for me.
I don't really know WHY I drew this - I just started with the facial form, and suddenly the nose was turning into a tree and it just went on from there.
It took me a long time to do this one - much longer than it should have. I got hung up with trying to figure out how to draw water, and then the neck area had me "stumped" for a while.
I'm glad to finally call it done.
I don't know if I believe in Global Warming, but I do believe that we are hurting our mother. There is no way we can pollute and destruct as much as we do without there being some sort of consequences somewhere down the line.
Mother Earth is Screaming, and yet we continue to do what we do.
Thanks for looking! I know that pencil doesn't scan well, so it looks a bit spotty. Also the left side looks blurry because I was scanning from a coil bound book. I like coil books - but they suck for scanning.
I really used this project to get comfortable with having darker darks - I tend to be a bit light handed and afraid of using too much shadow. This was a good exercise for that.
