Finished Puppy

Today is National Dog Day. I love sharing one of my portraits. This beautiful dog is Livvy and i had the privilege to draw her. I was able to finish and deliver it over the summer. Excited to see how her portrait gets framed and hear about her family’s reaction. #dog, #portrait, #pastel painting, #drawing, #aleciagoodman

With it being the last day of school I’m ready to show what i have my drawing board. This beautiful pup is growing on me as I pull in some of the essential details. She’s looking so good. Excited to show you the next update already. Be ready for some posts coming up on secret commissions I finally can share. #drawing, #aleciagoodman, #2022, #portrait, #pastels, #dog, #labradoodle

Pulling The Details

As I’m working on this one starting to get excited as some of the details lost in shadow are found. Livy is looking good. #aleciagoodman, #art, #portrait, #dog

Sizing and Tech Issues

“Livy,” portrait update #1 ©2022 alecia goodman to present

This beautiful and sometimes shy girl is starting to take shape. Nothing like figuring out past notes and numbers to get her matching to her previous sisters’ portraits. I’m working hard to figure out some of the details hiding in the shadows (aka nose and eye area). But the magic is working thanks to some amazing movie soundtracks, 300 and Titanic, I’m rocking out to. #aleciagoodman #portrait #pastels #painting #drawing

Under Pressure

Yes, I’m way behind…but plan on getting it done. This past month has been hard emotionally and super busy. I’m hoping things slow down and my heart can rest and recover from losing a friend. It hit me hard and dealing with other pressures it hit close to home. A lot of people are dealing with mental issues right now. Before anything else remember to be kind. You don’t want to hold on to the pressure of what ifs.

Sometimes I draw friends with their permission of course. I wish it looked a little closer to my friend. I didn’t want to do too much though and mess it up. Thankfully my kids recognized him. He might look a little scary, but he’s really just a teddy bear at heart. Still probably a good idea to stay on his good side. I hope my friend thinks its close enough. #Inktober, #art, #pressure, #American, #Indian, #glare, #man, #glasses, #bandana, #aleciagoodman, #drawing, #ink

This was a hard one to figure out what to draw. I really liked the idea of someone spying or watch-ing. My son’s been into this cool look lately. What does Watch make you think of? #Inktober, #watch, #boy, #sunglasses, #leather, #jacket, #inktober2021, #aleciagoodman

Bad Hair Day or Channeling Your Inner Lizard

Way behind and working on catching up…Sadly, sometimes adulting takes all my time. For Day 7 Fan I wanted to do something a little different than your conventional fan. What do you think too much of a stretch or nailed it? #Inktober, #Fan, #chicken, #ink, #art, #drawing, #feathers, #aleciagoodman

A Goddess Within

I love the spirit my daughter has especially when she’s Wonder Woman. It’s the one costume that has to be replaced as she grows. Definitely a warrior princess. #Inktober2021, #Inktober, #spirit, #wonderwoman, #costume, #ink, #art, #drawing, #aleciagoodman,

Contrasting Ideas

It’s the first day and I already started overdoing it. I do like the hard and soft contrasts…especially the human softness and the hard crystalline forms. Her profile is amazing, makes me think of characters from the show “Face-off” or even “Doctor Who.” What would you like to see this time around? #Inktober2021, #art, #crystal, #humanoid, #fantasy, #ink, #sci-fi, #drawing

Saying Goodbye to Chubby Cheeks

It’s hard saying goodbye to these adorable chubby cheeks and fur baby. I loved getting to work on these two and seeing them emerge from the blank canvas. I enjoyed talking with the client and sending them updates too. Now I can’t wait to hear the reaction when this drawing is gifted. Maybe I should do a couple of portraits of my own two as toddlers … back to editing for a bit. #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #pet, #aleciagoodman
