Blind Contour Friday 14

I'm late in my Blind Contour post. My drawing was done last Friday, but my computer conked out on me shortly after and i couldn't scan my picture till today. So i'm posting two BCDs this week....

Anyway, this is me doing a blind contour of me doing a blind contour.... haha!



I shifted around several times on my bed while holding onto my sketch pad, till i chanced upon my reflection on the full-length mirror beside my dresser. Thought i'd be an interesting subject that day because I had on a colorful beaded necklace with a matching beaded bracelet and a bright turquoise tank top. I thought I looked like E.T. in drag in this drawing though -- the shape of my head and the giant eyes skewed towards the lower part of my face was a clear reminder of the famous alien. Then again, it may actually be an accurate self portrait of how i feel on a daily basis.

No, not ET. I can see how you might get that out of looking at the image but I see a great BC drawing. It's interesting how we tend to judge our own work by these weird self imposed standards. You did a fine job here. The color adds a lot too. Excellent

This is a great bc. You even have the body parts in the right place. I'm amazed at how complicated everyone's drawings are getting. And thank you for your comment on Pharoh!

This is lovely and the colors and hair done so well. It is not easy to draw oneself when doing a blind contour. Now this week you are suppose to be making the most outrageous face?

It's hard to believe that this is a BC- everything is in the right place and with the right proportions! Very nice!
