Did the 7 x10 "Red Hot Poker" plant in 2 hrs. with Tombow Pens and wc for hilites - drew "Becca" in 2 hrs. as I did a graph first on 9x12wc paper (thought I would try this method as it might be easier on my eyes but to my chagrin it took so much time to rule out the graph - I don't think I will use again, I'll rely on good old freehand LOL) then it took 3 more hrs. to paint. Have been trying to upload since last night - finally success!

Super job on both of these. I like how you punched up the color in the floral and got the feeling of the person.

Kate - these are both very nice! I can't believe you took so much time on the grid. I've never tried that method and probably won't now that I hear how much time it takes. You really captured her position, which is one of the most interesting things about the photo. Also, great job simplifying the sort of elaborate interior shot.

And the poker plant is gorgeous. You really caught the color and the way those flower spikes just strain up toward the sky.

Nice work!

I like them both. Becca is my favorite. I do not like the time of the grid either but when I do take the time to do one, I usually have a much better outcome.

Love both pieces, Kate! There is actually an easy way to make grids (even in a different size) without measuring. It starts with intersecting diagonals to locate the center of the paper. Then divide the paper into fourths, and so on. I have used it a lot in the past. I can't locate any online directions to make this clearer.
Perhaps you can.

great job on the drawing, I agree, that the grid takes more time to setup then good old freehand, tho it is a good tool for careful rendering
great job on the shading and the wonderful colors of the plant as well

Two lovlies! I like the original sketch of Becca, too.
I make grids The same way Deano does- quicker and works just as well. It's triangles instead of squares but it works without measuring.
