Morality, like art, means drawing a line someplace

The other day I whipped out a pack ATC sized Bristol board a friend had given to me and decided to do a little shading practice for a larger scale project I'm working on. Its been awhile since I've worked on art, so I'm trying to get my art muscles all nice and loosened up. Just wanted to get some tonal values down to see how I want to progress with her on a larger scale. I was pretty pleased with how she came out despite being out of practice.

This is my first time making such mini art, its so much fun!

ATCs are an Obsession.

She is so wistful . . .
I think that you will find these to be TOTALLY ADDICTIVE. There is something so great about having a small area to practice new techniques on, and then trading them for other great subject matter. It just adds more fun to the whole experience of being an artist.
