29 Faces in February, Face 29 Big Eye Gothic Angel Fairy Sketch Art...



Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  I have a vintage hat with a webbing like the one she is wearing.  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.

She is face 29 for 29 faces in February.  The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of February.  To learn more about the challenge, please click here.  I found this challenge very inspiring, there's something about doing at least one sketch a day that's very satisfying.  The quality of my sketches from day to day varies, but I think the daily practice is very good.  I'm considering continuing to sketch daily in March, although they won't be all faces...


This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.

maybe it's the effect you want, but something calls to me for more

These are just rough sketches Martin, I do them to practice and increase my skills. Some of them I turn into paintings, some are just sketches. Tomorrow I'll post a finished painting that started as a rough sketch...

Oh I love her hat with webbing! Daily sketching is a great idea if you can! I find I can only do it for the co-op challenges, it sort of gives me a reason to sketch.
