Does anyone remember how to play marbles? I actually don't remember ever playing marbles when I was a kid. Sure we use to toss them around but we never really played any games with them or played for keeps (I'm sure many a kid got a marble in the eye with us throwing them around on the playground :p)
So the ladies over at the Virtual Sketch blog have decided to stop with the challenges, so I thought that maybe I could set something similar up. Once a month an image (or two) would be chosen from either images I have or images sent to the group to draw in any way a person sees fit. A date when all the finished, or almost finished work to be posted would be set and then everyone could see each others work. It can be a great way to get feedback and help with your art and it is always interesting to see how other people interpret an image. I would need to think of a group name if people were interested in me creating the group and I could set up a blog to help people stay connected. Its not anything serious, just something to do for fun and not meant to be stressful in anyway, so if anyone would be interested please let me know and I will start setting it up :)
And a little more work on the bucking horse. His face is a little finer here then in the picture, looks more like a mare then a stallion. meh thats all right, artistic license and all :p Need to finish this layer of pencil and then darken it. The first layer I usually just put in the basic shadows and highlights and then just refine those shadows with each darker pencil that I use. So hopefully finish this before I have to start college, which is sometime in the next 2 weeks but I don't know exactly as I don't have a time table yet :p Supposed to get one on induction day on the 27th.
hmm I wonder how odd I would look if I started taking pictures of the cow at college? :p
Still time to enter my give away :D
