#AprilA2Z Art Sketching through the Alphabet “B” + #4M

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Hello, Kitten & Dawgs!  I’m delighted you joined me for the next A2Z alphabet prompt. Hopefully, you saw Saturday’s post of my angel sketches but if not you can always take a look now. Just a reminder in my side menu you’ll see a list of my recent post for your convenience. This month I will not do multiple daily blog entries instead, I’ll bundle these into one post to keep confusion down along with the appropriate hashtag.

Today’s alphabet prompt inspired sketch is boy, as in little boys.  Years ago, I wrote a children’s story about my little brother.  I haven’t done anything with it because it needs pictures but I felt inadequate to draw them but who knows by stepping up to this month’s challenge maybe I will feel confident to take a stab at creating my own illustrations.

Keep in mind the only art experience I have is a couple of years from high school.

This is my first sketch.  I modeled my little boy from a Pinterest image. Originally I had only the little boy but after working with other drawings for a few weeks I went back to this and added more content breathing a little life into the picture.

That’s when I decided to try drawing another little boy sketch using a different image I found that had instructional steps.

 

Feeling inspired I got ambitious and tried drawing a portrait of my little brother, JC, with this old photo.

Can you see a slight similarity? Go ahead be honest! If I stretch my imagination I’d say yes but I’m doing a lot of stretching I tell you.  lol I really admire people who can draw others. It’s an amazing talent!

Obviously, these sketches can stand a bit of improvement but there’s always time to tweak my skills.  The biggest thing is I am finally putting action behind my words, instead of wishing, wishing, wishing my dreams away. 🙂

 

Mondays are all about the mewsic and I can’t let it pass without sharing some tunes with ya and you’re invited to step out on the dance floor with Monday Music Moves Me ladies – Marie, Stacy, Colette, and myself! The music theme is “Freebie pick” this week, so that means anything goes!

Please note…I do not manage the below linky. I am only a co-host. This is XmasDolly’s little baby and meant for mewsic participation only. Non-mewsic entries may be deleted or labeled. Thanks! 😉



I thought it was only fitting to keep with the alpha prompt and my art subject today, so give it up for Boyz II Men!

 

 

Hopefully, what I share with you every day will encourage you to do something that interests you that you’ve long put off because like me you just don’t think you can. My advice is, just do it! Maybe, you’ll be surprised. I know I was! 🙂

What should I sketch next using the letter “B” for inspiration?

I won’t be around Blogosphere much this afternoon. I need to see my doctor about my ear but I’ll be by to see you asap.  Right now, I’m heading off to link up with other fellow AtoZers and you’re invited to come along.  I’ll see you tomorrow for the next installment of Art Sketching through the Alphabet!
