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

Have to Fly

Still catching up…I kept my eye on all the scavengers in parking lots recently. They are incredibly smart and can even hold grudges. They are known in myth and lore throughout the ages. Loved getting to draw another one. #Inktober202, #ink, #art, #raven, #feather, #fly, #aleciagoodman

Hairy Truths

I’m behind, but working to catch up. Its not always easy to find the time. So don’t be surprised if I post more than one a day. My son told me that this doesn’t really represent “knot.” If you know how to braid I think it definitely does. I once taught myself to French braid my hair by sitting in front of the mirror while my family was driving to Colorado. Later I figured out how to braid a dear friend’s hair before her surgery. Now I get to play with my daughter’s hair and find clever ways to tie it up in knots out of her face. #Inktober, #Inktober2021, #knot, #woman, #ink, #drawing, #art, #aleciagoodman, #hair

Change of Heart

I ran with an old favorite, the Queen of Hearts. The idea of her being devious just made sense and the worn card further pushes that idea. #Inktober2021, #aleciagoodman, #suit, #ink, #art, #drawing, #Queen, #queen of hearts, #card,

Finding the Sun

I participate in themed exchanges with a small group of friends. I drew a friend and client this last time. She loves plants and I realized that the sunflower sketch I had done for a possible drawing for my daughter was perfect for her. What is your favorite flower?

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

Fighting Fur

Tackling fur in shading can be tricky business, mainly when trying to make it as realistic as possible. I’m excited as it’s getting so close to being done. As I’m in the finishing stretch, her chubby cheeks which are so cute remind me that my own kids are growing too fast. Hard to believe my nephew is graduating, and my son is a year and a half away to being a teenager, and my daughter is hitting a growth spurt. It goes so fast.  #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #pet, #aleciagoodman

Dressing a Toddler

I love how this is shaping up once I dressed this cute toddler. Stripes can be tricky, but the folds in the fabric really push the image’s depth. Up next is the kitty…do you have a special first pet? I will always remember our Doberman named Bo Jangles, Bo for short. #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #pet, #aleciagoodman

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
