challenges 23 and 71

Challenge 23 is draw your foot, so here's mine, including my almost non-existent pinkie toenail.








Challenge 71 is to draw something representing my favorite sport. I picked tennis, even though I do not play nearly as much anymore. But tennis is one of those sports where you have fun and get fit without noticing. All that running, shifting, aiming, hitting, darting back and forth, anticipating--it's such good exercise.
I did this in 2B pencil, and I did get tired of doing the strings, so that's why it looks like a giraffe skin in the middle! My racket is strung better than I have drawn it. Posted by Picasa

Great job rendering the strings. That must have been tedious, but looks wonderful!

Linda,
Your pencil sketches are lovely and the wonderful shading more than makes up for the "giraffe" strings - which I also like because it gives your sketch personality!

I love the perspective you've drawn from.

Linda,
You left a very kind comment on my blog this morning, and I was grateful for your kindness. Thanks for stopping by. I love your sketches. The lines are very fluid and organic, yet precise in representing what you are sketching. I'm envious of the line quality you're able to achieve. I'll be back to peek.

Yes, the strings were worth it - they look great, and interesting perspective

A nice job on both those, Linda!

I love the foot drawing. It's so gracefully drawn.

I love your sketches, especially your foot. It's so lifelike and realistic and at the same time has a very personal gentle look to it. My little toenail is also barely there.
