      Very kind of you. Still, the human face and figure seems so difficult to capture well.

  2. I agree with Kerfe, and nice perspective also on the people in this one, Kirk!

        This time i actually was more pleased with the way the people were situated. I particularly like the woman in the foreground in the red (ish) dress.

      • I’m glad! Boy I need to figure out perspective. Just trying to draw a pear on too of a book lying flat on a table is a major effort (looking mostly from the side vs straight down).

      • I hope you keep going, even after your year is up. Wouldn’t you miss it if you stopped now?

      Really? I don’t see it. My figures still look like a third grader drew them–but perhaps that is my destiny.

      • Well then that’s a super talented third grader. Lol… I love the life, energy and character in these. You’re getting a very signature look. 😉
