I did this sketch last night, trying to do what I did in response to last week's challenge, which was just look at the image on my screen and let my hand draw without stopping to think/analyze/Critique/ERASE. Then went back to make corrections and shading... I've also been trying this from life all week, drawing my dogs, trees, the animals at the zoo, etc. and it's really fun! Anyway this took 40 minutes, mechanical pencil on 5x7 sketch pad. I thought I would give it a more focused effort today, but won't have time, so apologies to Polygon for her crooked ear and Jack Nicholson smile....:)

I think it's wonderful...from the face to the folds in the clothing to those HANDS! Excellent drawing! Glad to hear you're having fun sketching from life. I often do this too through the week. :D

Wow! For a countour-style "blind" approach, that's amazing! The hands and arms are really well done as someone else noted. The likeness is definitely there too, even with the addition of the evil Jack Nicholson smile (I was thinking The Shining, were you? ;) )

Haha..that last description cracks me up. Perhaps this is Jack Nicholson's unknown cousin. Great arms and hands.
