Earning My Stripes

Just working away … The stripes and folds in the fabric are really taking shape. The highlights and shadows are starting to make more sense and pop. Being a toddler with her round face makes me realize how much my own babies have changed too. #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #aleciagoodman

Inbetween the Lines

Earning my stripes this time around. At times it goes really and others it’s painstaking slow. Still I’m loving it and think she’s so darned cute. Did you know artists are sometimes scared of drawing certain things like hands, faces, fur, and even stripes? Personally I love doing these. #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #aleciagoodman

Getting Cheeky

It’s starting to take on personality. A lot of blocking in coming up next. Is she looking cute or ornery? #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #aleciagoodman

Taking Shape

It’s taking shape and showing its personality. I’m starting to get excited about it. #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #aleciagoodman

Inktober Day 27 Music, still going. I like the idea of a contrast with this one. I picked a hare to mix with music. #Inktober2020, #Inktober, #music, #hare, #rabbit, #headphones, #fur, #dj, #animal, #aleciagoodman,

Hiding in Plain Sight

Inktober Day 23 Hide, this one was just too cute. Trust me she’s as ornery as she looks. Although a little simpler I had to work a bit to get her expression just right. #Inktober2020, #Inktober, #hide, #girl, #ornery, #rock, #aleciagoodman,

Catching A Dream

Inktober Day 30 Catch, almost done. I just have one more to go. Ridiculous that this year has been so hard to keep up with it. This one may be a bit simpler, but I really like the pose and line work. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #catch #woman #ink #drawing #art #beauty #star

Not A Punching Bag

Inktober Day 29 Injured, yes this one is hard to look at. It’s not pretty, in fact I would say its ugly and painful … not the woman, but what was done to her. No she didn’t walk into  a door. Domestic Violence is ugly and should never be ignored. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #injured #domesticviolence #woman #beaten #abuse

I’ve included a link below that is a beautifully choreographed dance that visually represents the relationship of a man and a woman in a domestic violence situation. Video against domestic violence.

Missing Fall

This how I wish I could wear a coat right now. Somehow it seems we have skipped Fall and dove right smack into winter. I have broken out my wool socks as it’s just too cold for me. How do you stay warm? #Inktober #Inktober2019 #coat #winter #warm #woman #ink #drawing

Light At The End

Almost there…still behind, but still getting it done. I wanted to work something more about contrast and practice my cross hatching. I really like how it turned out. Still I need to work faster, always seem to get caught in the subtleties and details.  What do you think of the contrast and shading? I plan to revisit this one and add in some birds or maybe dark butterflies. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #dark #woman #ink #drawing #art #shadow #contrast
