When I was in grade school, I confess sketching along the borders of my math pages instead of working the problems, and any spare time in school was spent drawing whatever was on my mind. (Which was NEVER the lesson. *cough* I really was a straight 'A' student, somehow)
It's really quite amusing to go through my old drawings every now and then, laughing at the strange looking figures on paper.
I'm not quite ready to share my super old ones, (probably never will be. Some are literally eight years old) but I would like to share how my art has improved in just two years.
These are taken with a phone's camera, and cameras seem to make my drawings look a little weird, so please excuse the terrible photos.
These are from my sketchbook, which I got two years ago.
Her head is a little large, isn't it?

You'll find that my favorite subject is the Old West. *chuckles*
This is from the Louis L'Amour book 'Shalako'

Echo Sackett from 'Ride the River' by (any guesses?) Louis L'Amour
Now we are getting closer to this year
I really like this one *smiles*
'Kilkenny' by Louis L'Amour
And now we are to the present time.
I have started sketching my characters
from my books, and this is one couple
This one looks much better in real life.... Oh, well
Some more characters
And another couple from my imagination. Lol
This is my latest. I'm pretty excited how it turned out! *wide grins*
This is Jim Rogers, son of the movie cowboy Will Rogers
What do you think?
Have I improved?
Which drawing is your favorite?
