Bonnie's mommy...if you could i need the pic you used to make the siggy with Zelda. I need to see a better pic then trying to blow up a copy of of your siggy, it is too blurry. If you don't have it, can you try to take one like it again, but from the opposite direction?

i think a pencil piece is all about the detail, or why would it be in pencil. IT takes way longer then paint, must be clean unsmudged or smeared (that always looks dirty)..it is just a challange in eye hand coordination, a practice in pressure. It is hard, and laborous but i am proud that i have been able to take it to this level. EAch piece has a reward in completion because it is better then the one before. I figure i can say i know what to do with a pencil. I am closer with acrylic but there is a lifetime of practice that needs to be done there. I started much later with paint. NOw i curse glazes

you got to do the eyes best of all for they are the widows of the soul. I think that is the truest saying i know of, believe in...so I start there after i have everything where it really nees to be, lightly sketched in then corrected. Once i got it right ( i pray i got it right for there is no going back) then i start with the eyes for two reasons. If i don't do them right the whole piece will be wrong, and they are usually in the center, the best place to start a pencil drawing to avoid any smearing by a shirt cuff, or abrasion of a cover sheet. I spend the rest of they time being as careful as i possibly can be. My hands never touch the paper. I tape it to my drawing board.

Yes I love that saying too. I always tend to smudge pencil drawings though, it's so annoying.
