Happy Thursday all!!!
One day before my birthday! Does anyone have any crazy traditions that they always do for their birthday? I don’t really. We typically do dinner and maybe a movie or something along those lines.
So one of my weak points or what I feel is one of my weak point is doing crazy not normal facial expressions… What I mean by that is anything outside of the sad/happy/serious range so emotions like surprise/shock/devastation/arrogance. I definitely feel like these expressions aren’t in the normal range for facial expressions that I tend to lean towards. So I have decided to start working on some of them and become more comfortable on how they look and feel especially before you add shading. I feel like some facial reactions with out the face properly shaded look like any other facial reaction.
Thankfully I have an overly expressive sister-in-law and in-law’s in general I would almost say. A few of my husband’s cousins are more expressive than what I am used to. Anyways here is my sketch. I feel like this is the beginning of a no way or shut up moment, haha. I absolutely love it. I will definitely be playing with the shading, I am unsure if I want to do it grey scale first or color. I fee like grey scale could give me a more solid foundation / I could do it easier, and color would push me a little more on making the depth there where it is needed and to trust the reference image.
A little heads up for next week I am thinking of posting some of the more refined lemon art. I would like to not spam you guys with each lemon piece. I feel like that would get a little sour… hahaha.. ha… uh… But seriously I would like to do a few in a post, but time will tell for those. I’m still working out a work/art/gaming/life balance especially since my knee is still not 100%. I carried my computer chair up the stairs on Monday, not that it’s a heavy thing, but it was enough to make my knee sore for the rest of the day. Shoveling the super heavy snow this morning also didn’t help it out. I am hoping to get into PT for that / back to the doctor if PT doesn’t work. Considering they haven’t called me yet and my doctor’s appointment is coming up fast I feel like an MRI will be in my near future.
Until next time, safe travels and good luck on all of your endeavors,
