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

Something Wicked

Almost there, just one more to finish. Inktober Day 30, Ominous … What if you’re only weapon was a wand and your intellect. Would you still blunder aroind in the dark with only a lantern to make your way by? One of my favorite fictional characters is a witch and her greatest weapon was her mind. I would only hope in that situation I’d find the courage to keep going. #Inktober2020, #ominous, #witch, #girl, #wand, #lantern, #dark, #stonewall, #wall, #bun, #messybun

Floating Donuts

Inktober Day 28 Float … due to the virus this past summer we spent a lot of time at our neighborhood pool. Normally in the mornings or early afternoons to avoid people. We took donuts off and on depending on the wind. On a particular windy day my youngest dropped one of the donuts and was asked to hold another so we could grab the first one. The second was dropped right after that. All of our neighbors heard the screams and watched as we chased them around the pond. Somehow we captured them, though I had my doubts. Hence the rule if its too windy, “No Donuts!” #inktober2020, #float, #girl, #swim, #pfd, #donut, #water, #pool, #vertical, #swimsuit, #splash, #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,
