Day 271: Gemini Drawing Take 2

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

You may recall that a while back, I was creating drawings that were personifications of the zodiac signs! I haven’t finished that series yet (working on it…), but before I do, there was one drawing I really wasn’t happy with and wanted to redo… the Gemini. In the original drawing, I tried doing the hair differently than the other drawings in the series, and failed miserably. The whole thing just came out as a muddy mess! So I decided to try again!

I looked back through my sketchbook and found one of my original ideas for the drawing with the twins’ hair intertwining together instead of just sort of mushing together. It looked a ton better that the drawing I ended up with, so I just continued from that sketch and finished it! Not really sure what I didn’t like about it originally, but whatevs.

I think this turned out really great and definitely much, much better than the original drawing! I hope to finish this series of drawings this week!

Day 257(? days late): Gemini Drawing

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

I have fallen even farther behind due to a bad sinus infection and then I was have trouble getting the image to load…. It seems like this semester is out to get me… But, I will catch up!!

At any rate, I decided to continue on in my Zodiac colored pencil drawings. This one represents Gemini. Gemini is represented by twins, as in dual personalities in one person. I decided to draw two women with their hair blending together as if they were physically connected. I had a little trouble with the drawing getting dark really fast. I had messed up and tried to mask it, but it just made it get all muddy, so I’m not entirely happy with this drawing, but it’s a good first draft.

I might revisit this one at a later date….

FYI I am headed to Atlanta tomorrow for Thanksgiving! I hope to get some posts in while I am there, but no guarantees!
