I tried again today after talking to Mari about it and came up with the idea of drawing them from about 10 feet away, and it worked out much better, and I was able to just approximate the thing.
Charcoal, white-out on newsprint.

Medium vine charcoal
White out pen
Started getting a hang of exaggerating values about half way through. Next time I wanna set up stuff with a wider range of surfaces and textures.

The final day of my first week back drawing I'm posting some life drawings from work and from the Ale House in Bothell. It's possible that this week I've actually put more "miles" down on paper than any other week before in my life...about...75 pages of sketches and "finished" drawings. Feels pretty good to take a step back from the computer and engage the world around me directly with "real" drawing. I'm characteristically inconsistant so we'll see how long the streak lasts, but hey, here's to an active week of drawing.

Trying to draw a toddler is no easy business. I have a bunch of pages of almost-drawings of her...haha. I had to catch her playing in tub where her mobility is (somewhat) limited, and even then she only gave me like...30 seconds or so. I didn't realize until I started sketching her how cool toddler proportions are...definitely helps in getting faster too!

Couldn't resist some sort of hand pun...but I can't say I'm too satisfied with the one I chose. Whatever, I'm tired, and I just left Mari alone post-X-Files, and she's probably sh*ttin' a brick upstairs...haha. Anyways I couldn't get out and draw today so I'm kickin' it student style with some hand studies.

You pick 2: black bean soup, Mediterranean veggie sandwich, apple.
Furiously sketching people waiting in line. Probably 10- 20 second gestures.
Me: "You wanna see the drawing I made of you?"
Subject 2nd from right: *rolls eyes* "Not really."
