World Drawing Day 2011

Today was World Drawing Day.  (No, I hadn’t heard of it either, until a few days ago.)

June 4, 2011

I drew this all within the last 24 hours.  Obviously, it could use a week or two more of work, but it was an interesting exercise dealing with a deadline.  I don’t think the likeness is great.  (It’s supposed to be Hugh Jackman.)  But I loved drawing the hair.

After much delay…a new drawing

I’ve been working on this drawing for most of the year.  Obviously, not full-time, but bits and pieces here and there.  Now that June is nearly here, I’ve decided to move onto something else.

I like how this came out.  It’s not “finished”, but it’s enough for now.  The deeper blacks and greater contrast of this drawing are a step forward for me.

Allison Hannigan – Dec. 19

This is a drawing I’ve been working on for a few weeks of Allison Hannigan.  She currently stars on the sitcom “How I Met Your Mother”, but my reference was  a publicity shot of her from the 90s.

I’m not very good at drawing young women, so I’m trying to make an effort to concentrate in that area for a while.

I thought this drawing started off well, but something went wrong somewhere along the way.  Still, it’s not the worst thing I’ve drawn, and it’s practice.
