but then upon second thought - well here's the drawing i did first -
the mini hershey bar wrapper
not quite as successful and that got me thinking about that place - the zone - that groove - you know - Danny G. talks about it in Everyday matters - others have spoken about it. I know we talked about it years ago when i was in school. That place you get to when you're drawing (or creating - whatever medium you're working in) where everything else goes away and its just you and what you're doing.
Well i definitely didn't get to that zone with the candy bar wrapper. I don't know why. I do know that i was too consciously working on those letters that spell Hershey's and i could not, for the life of me, draw them.
Totally different story with the Sweet n'Low. I was definitely feeling that zone and i'm pleased with the results. Now i just need to figure out how to spend more time drawing so i'm in that zone more often. Too many distractions the last week. I have barely blogged or barely visited anyone else's. I need to catch up on what everyone else is doing!
oh. for the record, I used my HB pencil in my sketchbook for both drawings as well as a prismacolor pencil for the candy one.
