The Stuffed Animal

I found this soft fluffy stuffed animal at the KMart that is downstairs at Penn Station's LIRR on the way to today's Caricature Event today.

In The Zone

Posted 6 days ago

I stayed up until 5am last night ~ working on that Pencil Caricature that I posted here. Not going to happen again. It's after 2am, and I am going to leave the studio tonight.

Even though I was Soooo into the Pencil Caricature that I started tonight. This time I was able to jump into it quicker than last night, because I had refreshed my memory about how to use the pencils.

But I don't have to finish it now. Time to close up for the night.

I do hope I get back to it tomorrow. I hope I'm still so in the zone tomorrow.

Next day: working on it again. Just threw in some Darks, and now I have to get some sleep. Again. Because I'll be drawing at an Early Event in Manhattan tomorrow. (That's today already).

I'm feeling like it's looking a little harsh now with these darks, but I trust that it will all fall into place as I continue. It's all part of the process.

Update September 15, 2019: Oh no! I dripped Water Droplets onto the Pencil Caricature that I've been working on. Bottom Left. Thin Paper because i wanted to have a smoother blending surface.

I tried to blot it with a tissue. We'll find out later if it's ruined

BTW ~ drawn on White Paper. Looks blue because my Skylight is covered with a blue fabric ~ something on my list of things i want to change ~ someday.

Update September 16, 2019: Still working on this Pencil Caricature tonight. I'm up to the good part ~ I especially like forming the Long Hair. I livened up the darks a bit, and I added a very dark background. So it's not looking too harsh anymore. Sometimes I feel like I like to do Pencil work the best.

But I probably would have put it aside already if I hadn't promised it to my Client. Because the reference photos clutter my PhotoShop screen ~ where I have to do a lot of other work too. I end up doing my other work on top of the reference photos all day long.

Happy to have all these things to accomplish. Happy that my Clients give me reasons to do them:
