Knees and failed caricatures! :P

Knees give me a really hard time, they're all bumpy and complicated. I'm not really happy with how I did the actual shading, so more practice is in store...


Graphite pencil & Prismacolor warm grey markers on paper, 8.5x11 in.

I also tried caricatures for the first time in my life and WOW is it ever hard! Also probably doesn't help that I tried it on myself first (and it doesn't look like me, really...), assuming it's easier to pick out defining features of a stranger, someone you haven't known for 20-some odd years. Also, I had no idea what to do with the body! I think I'll practice on politicians first or something...

Your knees are, as far as I'm concerned, 'the bee's knees'. Do you know that expression? It's an oldie, but then again...so am I. Anyway, it's a compliment.

And your caricatures rock!!

@ Lettie: Thanks! Must practice more! D:

@ Patricia: Sorry I was so confused by what you were saying to me about "bee's knees" this morning, I swear it was because I of my lack of sleep! But thanks! Class will be a lot less entertaining without you (and that awesome model we had today). :(
