Hooray! My computer is fixed.
After rebooting my computer what had to have been 20+ times, and making several trips to the repair store, I was finally able to get it working again.
When I wasn't messing around with my desktop last week,
I was working on "Doug". :)
When it comes to artsy stuff, working in pencil will always be my first love.
Drawing always fascinated me as a kid. I loved that I only needed 3 tools to make something magical appear in my drawing pad - a pencil, eraser, and a sheet of paper.
It still thrills me. And I still really only use the same, basic objects when I'm drawing in pencil today.
While working on this pet portrait, I thought I'd share with you one of my go-to, "grown up" drawing materials.
My favorite tool is an eraser pencil.
All you have to do is sharpen it like a pencil:
Fill in a layer with your regular pencil:
And then erase out:
I always, always use it when drawing eyes.

Doug is almost there.
I might take some time to finish him tomorrow, after some Turkey & pumpkin pie. :)
Do you have any plans for the holiday?
