Goal 2 -- Draw 10 Pictures

I drew a picture!!


(I wonder why I can still draw okay but can't write cursive very well at all.)

wow! you are seriously talented. How long did it take you to draw that?

Melissa said...

Not long...I was just working off a couple of photographs, and I had to make it fatter and with longer hair.

the Bag Lady said...

Why on earth would you have to make it fatter? Unless, of course, that's not you in the photo in one of your earlier posts.... or not you in the drawing.....
Sheesh, now I've confused myself.

Either way, it's a terrific drawing, and I'm terribly jealous because I can't even draw stick people that look like stick people! Sigh.

Melissa said...

I'm just a little fatter and older than the photos I was working from. I'm really old as dirt, but I don't have any wrinkles to speak of, except a crepey neck, but it's hard to draw crepey, so the picture looks pretty young.

wow - drawing a pic like that, which is approx 15 times better than anything i can draw....and with your poor hand? That's amazing!!

Melissa said...

Thanks weightinggame! For the compliment and for visiting. And like I said, I think it's strange that I can draw and not write. Actually I can PRINT okay, but not write cursive very well. I think it has something to do with not being about to maintain a sustained line. The drawing is done with fairly short messy strokes, which I can certainly do!

See you later!

You write very well.

Most of us get lost with cursive because we learn it when we really want to be running around on the playground.
