    This is my first serious sketch. If I ever become a professional, this will be my first piece. I drew this out of pure boredom because I wanted to see if I was any good at sketching. He he, well, I guess I am.:D

    The dark areas are shadows. Believe me when I say some people thought it was hair and I am not kidding.:p This is Gillian Anderson, (Scully from the X-Files), and she is standing in front of some sort of exercise machine. The light is hitting her from the side causing the shadows (Some people didn't realize that either).:rolleyes: This was done with a single, ordinary pencil and a pop-on eraser. It took me about 6 hours to draw. Obviously, I drew it while looking at my computer screen, as I would not have access to her in real life.:D

    Keep sketching! Your values (lights/darks) are amazing for a first time. Most people are afraid of really dark darks when they first start out, and that really makes your whole piece pop....great work!

    Great sketch. I wish I could draw like that. I guess I will have to stick to writing.

    Keep up the good work, I can see an improvement from your first sketch. Figures take time and practice.
