Zentangle and figure drawing

This week I did another zentangle mandala. I cut a snowflake from tissue paper, traced it with a pencil and then connected points with my ink pen. This approach means that if I traced it a second time, I would most likely have a different design. I've used ink and colored pencil.

Figure drawing still draws my interest. One of my big hang ups is making the head to skinny. Oh well, I'll keep trying.

Love the "snowflake."

And that you join me in posting figure drawings. I laughed when I read about your skinny heads. Mine vary from too small to too big!

I really like your zentangles. Before discovering your blog, I never found zentangles that really interested me.

I have a BFA in drawing, used to do figure drawing 6 hours a week and had tons and tons of practice... and had head issues. It never gets easy. Easier, but not easy.

Thanks, Shirley and Jenna. At least I know that I'm not alone in struggling to get the proportions right.

While I have certainly not mastered drawing the figure (hands and feet and heads--aaack!) I found Betty Edward's advice in Drawing on the Right Side of the brain helpful and did get better when I followed it.

Heads & faces are the hardest thing to draw so don't be discouraged.
I've bookmarked you too, I agree with your comment about EDM :(
