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

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

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

As You Wish

Have you ever dressed up as a princess? My children love dress up and are always wearing costumes.
