Snippet Sunday

I worked quite a bit on sketching this week, but I could have concentrated more than I did on the illustrations for my picture book.  I did 18 doodles and only filled one page of my (admittedly large) project sketchbook. I finished the hedgehog, too.  My take-away lesson from the hedgehog is: Planning is important. If I don't plan something, I shouldn't be disappointed or discouraged if the back- and foreground are not integrated.  So, even if I'm doing something to horse around, I might want to think it through a bit more.

I took both my doodle book and sketchbook to the library on Thursday, only to find that the library was closed due to it being a holiday (anniversary of the 2nd revolution). So I went to sit in a "park" near my house instead, which is where I did the sketch on the lefthand page.
On the top of the righthand page, you can see the word "right" which means that I drew all of that with my right hand (I'm lefthanded), and Sprout contributed the potted plant on the far right. :P

Here is the finished (and pretty muddy looking) hedgehog, with a re-post of its beginning.

This week's goal is to concentrate on the picture book illustrations and do a doodle a day.

Awww, the finished hedgehog picture is gorgeous! You're so good! And the palms on the left top look like Florida's saw palmetto.

Ha! I see the Sprout in those sketches!

And that hedgehog turned out terribly cute.

Oh, and is it just me or are you more creatively productive after you had the baby? How is this possible??? :p

She wanted to pose for me and then wouldn't sit still. Good thing I was only trying to do a gestural drawing. :P

I am not too displeased with how the hedgehog turned out, after all.

I have a smidge more energy now that I'm running on less sleep rather than less sleep + pregnancy hormones/stress/weight, etc., so yeah. And I'm making more of an effort...since I DO have more energy. :D

Oh, and the need to freakin' finish something is getting stronger and stronger. I'm not fooling myself into thinking I'll be able to add greatly to our income with my writing, but I need to make a stab at it.
