Happy Sunday Sketches all!






I tried something new this week - I have to admit I am so enamored of all the big-eyed girl art out there. For all of you who specialize in this type of picture, I just love them all.



So this is my attempt at a couple of Big-Eyed Girls - I am a little disappointed, because they just really doesn't do too much for me...maybe this is just not my genre. I'm kinda surprised because as I said I just love all of this type of art that I see on so many blogs...




Well I proved I can imitate all of you great wonderful artists out there to some extent. Hopefully if you think it looks a little like your work, you will be flattered and not annoyed:-)


You can find more fabulous Sunday Sketches at Sophia's place http://bluechairdiary.blogspot.com/






Off to visit all of the other wonderful sketches!

Sunny Sunday Smiles to you all!

Oh they're lovely. I especially like the last one with the wild ginger hair. Green eyes - she must be irish!

Nicola said...

These are great I think you nailed the big eyed girl for sure!!! I like that you have maintained your own style but have done your version, that's what I hope my girls look like, if that makes sense ;0) Great pieces for this weeks Sunday sketches!

Lenora said...

I love them and I think they have your signature, your own style! The first has such a young quality to her - the second, well i always love red hair and green eyes, shes a little older, has something to say..

Sophia said...

I thought they're quite cute and still quite your style and the eyes are wonderfully animated

Debbie said...

These are both fabulous! Really love the red heads hair!

I think these are really wonderful! It is something I think you should continue with, at least periodically. They would be perfect in a child's book.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Big eyes or no, I think your girls have charms of their own! I'm sure you're on the verge of finding your magic along the way... (^_^)

My first thought when I opened this, before I read a word was, "Look at those eyes!"
