After reworking my little softball player I needed a bit of easy mind candy to draw. My Dear Hubby flipped through one of my books by Hart and found this little manga birdie. So, here is another group effort for MMM.Read More
Here is my daughter, the manga softball player! We went out for pizza after the game Friday and I started this drawing while we were waiting for our food to arrive. Something seemed off so I let it sit overnight. On Saturday I got some expert input from my boys and finished her. Lots of fun and a group effort!!Read More
We had a late softball game tonight. When the sun went down, the temperature dropped like a rock. We bundled up in jackets and blankets and still froze. I felt so sorry for all the poor little girls playing in shorts and sleeveless tops. The game ended up as a tie. They didn't try to break the tie because we had run over the time limit and it was a school night. I just think the umpires wanted to go home and thaw out, I know I did!!Read More
I saw a young lady at the ballpark with such an unusual, striking hairstyle that it just stuck in my mind's eye. She had shaggy, close-cropped white hair in front to her ears, then it swept up abruptly into a jet black ruff of hair that reminded me of a tom turkey with it's tail-feathers fanned out. The hairdo looked perfect for a manga character, so I tried to recreate it for today's drawing.Read More
We had two more ballgames tonight. We won the softball game and lost the baseball game. It was so windy and chill outside that I feel like all my energy has been completely blown away. Ugg, I'm a zombie!! I dredged up enough energy to come up with this little chibi from my exhausted, dazed brain. I'm off to get some sleep before I start drooling on my computer.Read More
This has been a very busy weekend, I barely got in any time to draw. I started #10 (ala Hart) on Saturday then sat it aside to go shopping with the family. It was so late when we finally got home I just vegged out instead of finishing it. Sunday, of course, was Mother's Day so we went out again for dinner. I ended up finishing the drawings in the very, very wee hours of the morning. So much for reversing my night owl tendencies!!
The post today is just a teensy bit different than the previous manga sketches. I thought I'd try something a little more complicated. Whewww! Was it ever! It is finished, and I'm exhausted. The demo in Hart's book makes it look so easy, I didn't know it would take forever to do.Read More
