Molly Portrait

Here's a pencil sketch of the Bird from my sketchbook, before and after Photoshop tweaks.

Before my digital days, things like 100 extra hours, very strong erasable paper, and lots of tears were necessary to achieve a good likeness. Now there is a shiny new world that has a transform tool, a warp tool, and dodge and burn magicks.

I'm not thrilled yet- I see now that I lost some hair shading when I tweaked it- but it captures the pixie well and I need to move on to THINGS THAT HAVE DEADLINES.

I can't believe I haven't drawn her more. Lucy's husband has drawn his beautiful child and wife so much I always leave their place wishing for more Mollydoodles:)
