I'm kind-of on a drawing kick again, except this time it's not coming so easy. I am way better at more life-like charcoal drawings and this time I'm in a whole other world! I have been trying my hand at digital drawing with my computer in photoshop, it's fun....but I'm not very good at it. I feel so dumb! I went to two different book stores last night trying to find a book on digital drawing and I only found one, and that one was so far over my head I didn't even get it. I have never been great at tech stuff -or drawing for that matter- and I feel like there is so much that I don't know. If any of you have any recommendations for books, websites, blogs, anything, please drop me a line. I need one of those Dummies books but I don't think they have one, I will look into that. Besides my trouble with understanding the computer end of this new adventure I am having a hard time simplifying my drawings into more cartoonish characters. Maybe I shouldn't say cartoonish, but you know, like the drawings from the "Dick and Jane" books. I think that is the look I'm going for but I'm so ignorant on this subject that I don't even know what to call it! LOL!The drawings above are of my girls in their Miss Madeline dresses. I scratched these out last night when I got home from the book store. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed right now with the amount of things I need to learn but excited at the same time! I know I will never be great at this but I love learning new things!
I hope everyone has a "Very Merry Unbirthday" on my Birthday!
