I Hate Clowns

Well, not me, I really don't hate clowns, but ummm let's name her Melissa. Yea, Melissa sure does. Actually she was one of the first faces I tried drawing with a reference photo..well of course I will say she is EXACTLY like the ref photo rofl..but not so!

Her face is a bit more stretched and yes that was the expression..but the original photographer will not recognize her at all! I started this a few months ago in the summertime, and later as I was trying out the different pencils, drew the hideous

My nephew gave me a HUGE sketch book last Christmas, 2006 that is. It is a Canson 11x 14 size paged book. I was scared to draw in it...I always start somewhere in the middle anyway, but I was just scared and definately didnt want any of my doodles in it lol..(the clown is a doodle!)

I reserve it mainly for human subjects. (I will let you know how long that lasts) My favorite sketch book which is 8 1/2 x 11 only has 12 clean free pages left. I played with Melissa a bit more today. And I can now say I'm finished. My eraser is leaving marks now -- so yes she is finished lol

thanks for visiting my blog! I know what you mean about Big sketchbooks! I've been really into working small...something a little bit less daunting about that!

Hey, this is a great drawing ... including the clown (even if it's a little scary to me too). How do you like the Canson paper?
