IMAGINATION



This is a piece I made recently for a swap, requiring a hand drawn face. At first I was not going to do this swap, because I am not that good at it, but of all the things I want to improve on, drawing faces would rank high on the list. So, I did it. It's not the best, it's not the worst. Yes, I can draw. But I really want to understand what I am doing with each mark. I want something in between reality and fantasy. I purposefully elongated her face, trying to convey an atmosphere, but don't know what that quite is! I like some aspects of it, and I enjoyed working with the color. I still want to learn more about the anatomy of the face, and how to make it more my own. I envision a style, but it hasn't come out yet. From what I know, practice helps a lot with this, and I haven't devoted a lot of time to it, but again, it's on the list!


Thanks for visiting, I appreciate all your comments!

Fifty years ago, Tiger Shoes two ski suits

manufacturers meet a skier. They chime in easily, Franklin

Marshall
and then they create a brand which becomes a famous fashion brand all over the world now. At first

they concentrated in designing ski suits which fits mountain climbing, Moncler Jackets and expedition. Owing to their bright

colours, special design, carefully selected material and good quality, moncler jackets attracted so many people's attentions

immediately.
