DaVinci WIP day 3

OK, this time I really mean it!  This is the last version of my DaVinci copy.  I darkened the values, although it still isn't quite right.  But ol Yeller and I are parting ways.  It's time for me to move on to something else .... not sure just what yet, but definitely something else.  He was a good model (you know, he Never Moved At All!!), but I'm a tad tired of him.  So, one last look ....

 

  

p.s., don't forget to leave a comment on my "giveaway" post to win the book.  You have until Sat. 3/13!

Impressive sketches. You have what I call "killer" skill. Wish one day I could do the same. And you're so right about him not moving at all. :)

Thank you for sharing.

Very well done Nancy! The similarities are amazing. It's close to impossible to make a 1 to 1 copy but that's not the point here. The drawing is just so nicely drawn.
=) I am glad you like the shoes.

You have certainly captured the look of what DaVinci did. A really good job.

Also, thanks for all the wonderful comments you have left on my site.

You did great! Yep, when you start calling him names its time to move him out!

He looks better, I think, for the deeper shading - it gives the drawing more opower. Well done for your patience Nancy!

And you are very generous offering the book as a giveaway. I haven't entered because I have too many books as it is (4,000 in our house and counting), but I appreciate your warm heart!

This is absolutely perfect! It's incredible to watch your improvements!
Thumbs up! And: Have fun with the next one! :)

Sandra said...

Yeah! You've accomplished so much.

I guess you could be a great big grey square box with shiny buttons and screens, and call yourself HP or Brother. Other than that, I think your rendering(S) are pretty awesome. I like that one comment: "killer skill". Yep, you've got it.

Awesome, Nancy! Glad he was a perfect model for you. He turned out great. Time to move on if he's giving you grief - NEXT!
