Polly - WIP 2

So here we are back to my beloved Prismas. I'm so much happier! And I think it already looks a million times better. Good stuff. Let's hope I can keep  it up.

Polly WIP 2

Really not loving these pencils at all! Plus I've realised that I've done the eye far too big for the whole beak to fit on the paper.Oh dear. Looks like I'll have to start again.

Polly WIP 1

Now that I feel like I'm back in the groove, here we go with a coloured pencil piece. I'm going to try out my posh Bristol Board paper and the new Derwent Coloursoft pencils I bought ages ago and never opened.
Not loving the pencils I must say.  They don't lay down very well and blending them is hard. They feel quite pastelly rather than CP. We'll see how it goes.

Self portrait finished

I've kind of left this sketchy and didn't want to go into too much detail (Maybe because that's what I find the hardest!). Pleased with the end result.

This isn't going  too badly! It actually kinda looks like me!

Self portrait wip 1

I've never really had a go at drawing myself before so here's the start of an attempt. I really need to get used to drawing again!
