Wonder Woman: A Struggle

The most difficult balance I’ve every tried to reach is within these drawings. It’s a struggle.

I’m trying to balance a very sketchy, free form, loose and energetic drawing with accuracy of the face to capture a likeness.

Over most of my art all my life I’ve just made things better by adding more and more detail but when I’m trying to describe with less and constantly remove and get to the root of the image I find it super super hard.

I’ll keep working on these…. I fear it may take a while.

What went well?

I spent 3 hours on this drawing focusing hard to come up with the true me.

What didn’t go so well?

I dislike the drawing. It’s messy and doesn’t look like wonder woman from the latest movies.

What did I learn and/or how can I do better?

I’m not sure what I can do now, I’m working hard to figure that out each time I’m at the easel.

My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it.
