I'm taking a class at the union and it's more of a lecture class, so I fell back into my old habit of doodling in my notebook. For some reason I find it a lot easier to get into things when I'm drawing on lined paper. I guess the vast, pristine expanse of a sketchbook page intimidates me ha.

(her face was so weird after I scanned it in and flipped it around. I tried to move things around but it still doesn't look quite right. franken-face.)

I don't advocate smoking, but I like drawing it. Makes the hands more interesting. C:

Mike Nassar said...

you have a wonderful shorthand...for the ladiieesssss. I like the drawins, carrie. good to see an update :)

Ryan Green said...

I feel the need to go buy a pack of smokes now...and maybe drink some tea in a pretty dress, too.

Good to see you posting again, Carrie.

Fawn said...

Ryan only gets to the pretty dress part, too much effort for smoking or tea-ing.

Fancy drawings! Post more!

@Megan: Pretty ladies are always fun to draw! And long cigarettes :)

@Mike: hehe thanks! for some reason I always prefer drawing ladieeess

@Ryan: that's how real ladies do it, a smoke in one hand and a daintily held teacup in another :D

@Fawn: Thanks! Haha I'm trying to imagine Ryan in a pretty dress. It's...interesting

@Nikhita: Thanks very much! :)

@fredo: Thank you!

lovely sketches! I also love drawing people smoking even though I don't advocate it, haha. good bumping into you briefly at Nucleus last Saturday, too. :)

Wow! One thing I really love about your artwork is that it's not all the same style. Sometimes your lines are sketchy, and sometimes they're solid, and sometimes they look realistic and sometimes they're cartoony... you're just very diverse!
