.5 to go...Hallelujah....

at least till someone else thinks of a must do for me:>


I have to say i have really been amazed how changing one small line all of a sudden turns a face that was just a face into the person you were trying to draw...its almost magical...


I did cheat alittle trying to get these finished...they are drawn from pictures i took during honors day on Thursday...the two little boys are such wiggle worms and the girl...well i just wanted to get her done!! And i t was MUCH easier drawing them from the pictures...
SOO last nite at 12 pm it seemed like a good idea to wipe this sketch out and redraw it compleletly...with a pony tail instead of pig tails...and the new one looks just like her..almost photographic it looks so much like her......she has the most beautiful skin and it loses something in the black and white sketch...she won the highest average in kindergarten for accelerated reader this day!! YEAH'


OKAY i was looking throw these pictures...thinking he may look angelic BUTTTT hes not...he used to cry all the time but has come miles down the road..and only occasionally indulges in it now...and hes learning so much better...guess what cured him?? STICKERS...he will do anything to earn stickers and keep them on his behavior card...amazing the power of 1 cents worth of sticky paper!!

And this boy is going to break hearts when hes grown up...hands down the handsomest boy in kindergarten but oh sooo naughty....couldnt tell it in this picture...could you???

These are awesome portraits! Great expressions and they look so relaxed. Not stiff at all.
