drawing corner


just thought i'd pull out some drawings from a while back... mostly from freshman year of high school, actually. this is before i took art class, as you can probably tell by the quality.

as you may be able to tell, i was on a Lord of the Rings kick...

this first one i drew whilst sitting out during a Knowledge Bowl meet round -- this has got to be the calmest i'v
e ever been during a Knowledge Bowl meet [and i never was this calm during them again]. not my best work, clearly.


this next one is from during one of my religion classes. this doesn't mean i wasn't paying attention, of course! i just needed something to do, and decided to draw. this one has nothing to do with Lord of the Rings, but i loved the flow of her dress, so i needed to add stairs and the candle to make it work...







also drawn during some classes was the beginning of the more central picture of arwen. i added the side picture a months later, as i had nothing else upon which to draw at the time. again, not one of my best, especially when it comes to shading [notably, the lack thereof on the face...] but for before art classes, not horrible, per se...


finally, we have probably my best pre-art class effort for this collection. at least, it's the best as far as shading goes. it still doesn't quite look like him, which is irritating, but i can live with it. this was the product of a Saturday afternoon:

Honey I couldn't even do those drawing after an art class. You rule...was actually thinking of begging yuo to do a design for a little tattoo for me ;)

Very nice. I've always been amazed at how just a few strokes of a pencil can make a face. For instance, the one little shading you did on the side picture of Arwen gave her her high cheekbones. And one simple line can define the shape of her chin. Knowing what to draw to make it look like you want it to look is tough.

if you're talking about the side drawing, lolly, that's a scrape on her face! :P

Gotta agree with Lady Silk, Amelie. You Rock! I couldn't draw a straight line with a ruler! These are very nice. You start designing tattoos, you give me a holler. I got some ideas I'd like to see.
