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

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

Camel Named … Sandy?

Inktober Day 13 is Dune. I’m pretty far back, but still plan on catching up. I wondered about how to approach this one. For some reason I kept thinking about a picture of a camel that was sent to me quite a while ago from a zoo trip. Thinking about it I came up with this cutie. #Inktober2020 #Inktober #drawing #dune #camel #desert #sand #fur

Disgust in the Eye of the Beholder

Day 11s prompt is Disgusting. This one really is in the eye of the beholder, its based on opinion. Just because I don’t like something doesn’t mean everyone else will agree. Right now everyone needs to remember it’s okay to agree to disagree. Its part of what makes us unique as individuals with different personalities. #Inktober2020 #hand #cigarette #disgusting #smoke #woman #ink #drawing
