Sketch 1
I’m taking an online class with Suzi Blu at the recommendation of my friend Nat. The class is called Petite Dolls and is a beginner class – perfect for me! I’ve been practicing drawing these girls a lot – the ONLY way to get better! These are the first two full size sketches that I did that I like. I’ve been working in a tiny little sketchbook and when I get something I like in the little sketchbook I go ahead and transfer it to the big one. It never turns out exactly the same but I get the general feel of the piece right. I need to find my file of faces that I have somewhere or the other – or just go buy a new fashion magazine. I’m pulling blanks on hair styles without some kind of reference. But anyhow – here they are – I like the sad girl best but her legs look ‘off’ to me. We are our own worst critic!!

They scanned light but if you click on them you can see them better.
