I really wanted to do one of the exercises from Cate Caulacos Prato's Mixed-Media Self-Portraits: Inspiration and Techniques. (See book club discussions from Deb Prewitt at Blue Twig Studio and from previous my blogs from March 31 and March 1.) In this exercise, you put a transparency on the mirror and trace the features of your face. It was much more difficult than I expected. The outline of my face looked okay, but everything else was warped! Lol! She did say it may take a few tries to get a good outline! I'll post this when I get something that looks like a face!
So, I've continued with my dragon sketches from J. "Neon Dragon" Peffer's book Dragon Evolution. (See info in past posts here.) I finished the different types of dragon horns that I started in Week 11 of the 365 Days of Art Challenge.
|Segmented Horn - pencil on mixed-media paper. I actually |
posted this one in Week 11, but thought I'd re-post it with the
other segmented horn and dragon so they are all in one spot.
|Spiked, Segmented Horn.- pencil on mixed-media paper.|
|Dragon with spiked, segmented horn. - pencil on mixed-media paper. This dragon makes me think|
of a water dragon or that he is flying rapidly through the air chasing something.
|Ram Horn - pencil on mixed-media paper.|
|Forward-Facing Ram Horn - pencil on mixed-media paper. It's hard |
to tell from this small sketch, that the horn is actually facing forward.
