Learning to draw

My sister, The Mighty Sally, is a fantastic artist. She does these amazing illustrations for a weekly art contest called Illustration Friday.

Here’s an example. She did this one for the topic “farm”:

Inspired by her illustrations, I’ve decided to take up pencil drawing.

I’m learning from Lee Hammond’s, Big Book of Drawing, which I’ve found very helpful so far.

Here are some of my first attempts at drawing various facial features.

Yeah, I know the nose on the top left looks cartoonish. It’s supposed to. It was just an exercise to learn how the shapes fit together.
More to come. Stay tuned.
