Day 15: Family Picture. This drawing is two days late. Apologies to my readers, but two days ago I just couldn’t get in the mindset, and last night I had an interview to prepare for instead of drawing. But tonight, I’m trying to catch up.
So here is my family picture. This is the day Matthew was born, not five minutes after actually. In the photo version, I’m in the picture, but you’ll notice I’m not in the drawing.
A) I don’t really like drawing myself.
B) It said Family. I am not my family. I am me. I am one in a krillion.
I rarely say this, but I’m very satisfied with, and proud of, this drawing. My wife looks beautiful, and my son looks adorable.
This was my first drawing in the brand new sketchbook I bought today to replace the old one I just filled up. Spiral bound, so the pages lay flat while I’m drawing (instead of puffing up like a book), and perfed pages so they’re easy to rip out and scan (or frame… maybe… possibly… ok, no). I find the pages scan a little yellow, but a quick color correction in Photoshop takes care of that.
