Bad hair day
So I am diggin' this new approach. I thought this image of my youngest son would be interesting rendered in this style. He's been growing his hair out - we all wanted to when we were 13 - and it payed off. He got up one morning and came in to our bedroom with a head of hair that seemed to be exploding from his scalp. It was great. I'm known for my own bedhead, but this was a record breaker.
So here is C in this new style of drawing...painting...sketching
And here's the original pen & ink drawing that started it. Which brings me to another point. My other son asked me why do we say pen and ink when we just use a pen to do the drawing? "Good question", I said, "now go to bed."
Anyway, here's the "pen" drawing I started with for this post.
