Not another pretty face


Here is my August Illo -
Marker on paper...

I got a question on my blogg from someone about who I draw.
I get the pictures from the magazine and then draw from that. Most of the time they are tiny and low quality - so that is always a fun challenge. They take me about an hour to do. I use the grey set of Prisma color markers - start light and work to dark.

Last night while drawing this one i noticed that there are several moments as I am filling in the greys where I think it is awful and that I should start again. But I keep after it and keep working and somehow I seem to pull it out of the down spiral. I do that with all my drawings - I once heard someone call it the ugly stage.
