I found an old b/w sketch and coloured it up. I can't seem to draw anything new right now. I don't usually post anything this "messy" as in outlines and mottley looks here and there but here goes  lol  Thinking of you all.  Rob/yn

Nothing messy about this Robyn. I actually got a shock when I saw it as your young lass looks just like one of my sisters when she was younger. The eyes certainly have it and Gail has eyes exactly like that.  I did try sketching a face but ended up scrapping it.  You have the gift for it. Love this girl.

Hi Rob,

I really like your sketch style on this one.   Looks a little less perfect and therefore shows a little more of girls character.   Definitely not messy - looks really good and more spontaneous.
   In reply to your query - I am keeping very well indeed and really enjoying all the things I do and am involved in - I am very fortunate.   I hope you are very nearly fully recovered?   Keep smiling,

Cheers Isla

Well that is amazing Vivienne!  Probably if we put the 2 pics together there would be a vast difference overall, and it  is similarities in features that make people look alike in many cases, without them being exact, although I agree that a very close likeness of many exist. We as a family have found several photos on the net that could be mistaken for some of us, and I saw a brown version of a lady of european descent and they were doubles apart from the colour of their skin. Thanks so much for loving her.   [smile] Robyn

Bob, thanks a lot, sorry about the delay in answering. I used to do outlines all the time, then I changed as I told you in a post on your Vendor a little while ago. Now i use a wide brush to fill in a block of colour, shaping as I go. Then I use the wet finger blender to finish any shaping to the outline of the face. I use the "multiply blend" brush to put in shading where the eyes are to go and markings to the shape of cheeks etc. I add various colours to the skin and use the same blender to smooth out. This all on one layer. Sometimes I continue with the Multiply Blend to do the complete eyes on the same layer as the skin, and sometimes I go up a few layers and draw the eyes with various brushes. i tried to do a video once and it turned out good, but the more I played the video back the more it got doubles and other faults. I haven't tried too hard to do another. That was years ago and maybe I'll try again later.  [smile] Rob

Thanks very much Don. I'm glad you liked it. I'm sorry to be so tardy about acknowleging you. I've had a problem with the ol' back and it's not been allowing me to sit up too long, and then i forget to come back to it. Am I getting old?  haha  Below is a repeat of an explanation about my art, said to Bob...  [smile] Rob

Hi Isla and thanks so much for thinking so.  I'm very sorry for the late reply but there are things holding me up.  I enjoyed finding the old sketch and colouring her up. Had to do a few adjustments as well. 

That's good that all is good in your corner. I am just starting to feel not too bad, but it fluctuates a lot.  it depends also on whether there has been a jarring of areas, not good to have that happen.  I do keep smiling and laughter too as very good medicine.  [smile] Rob
