“Emre at 7 Months”, Update #2 and Another

October 30th, 2008 · No Comments

I’ve made some fair progress on this drawing, but hadn’t posted any updates because I’ve been pretty unhappy with it. I spent a lot of time this morning with a roll of scotch tape pulling up mistakes, and while I’m still not pleased with how its going, I’m feeling better about it.

While being disgusted with that one, I started a second one that my wife has been asking me to do for a while now that will hang next to Clara, Profile. Since today is her birthday, I figured now was a good a time as any to get started on it.

With any luck I’ll be able to finish it for her today. At worst, tomorrow.
