Today's sketch--arjun



After a very, very long time, i have been patient here...I spent almost 8 hours on this sketch! Usually I am in rush and spend no more than 2 hours per sketch..but this time I decided to put in more quality.It has come out well, I believe.
My son, who is the model here, commented "It does not look real, but it looks good!"

  5. You did a great job on this and I totally get that about only spending a few hours on a subject.. Every once in awhile it's great to spend more time.

    Since I mostly do just sketchbook stuff and never hang my scribbles if I can't finish something up in two hours, maximum four, forget it!

    He is a cutie and that's a great pose, to me the angles would be a challenge.

    p.s..thanks for your wonderful comment on my blog...I'm not worthy, ha!

  6. That was a great painting I must say. I actually thought it to be an old photo at first glance. Great work. Keep it up :)
