Joan, Selfies, by Elaine (jaguarish)

I thought Joan's selfie would be easier with such strong shadows to guide me... awk!  Sorry Joan I'm afraid you got Bambi eyes somehow... I might have to try again!  However I don't have it in me to do more than one a day.  I even tried to be loose with this one but once again became rapt with all the details.  It's been so interesting doing these!


  1. Elaine, I think you did a good job! Sketching each other is fun.

  2. awesome job, and wow, love the teeth. I can't do teeth!!

  3. Good job, Elaine, it is fun to sketch each other. I like your use of watercolors.

  4. You did an amazing job on the lights and shadows! I think you are being way too hard on yourself!

  5. Thanks guys -- after doing these few, I understand that old saying "the eyes are the windows of the soul" -- feels like it is essential to get the eyes right!
