Diana's Companion

This is my interpretation for the challenge at Different Strokes From Different Folks...

... to do a drawing based on a photo taken of a statue of a companion of the goddess Diana.

I decided to just go ahead and do it because of Inspire Me Thurdays challenge for this week which was PUSH. I considered lots of other options and then decided to draw this to push myself.

I did mine with a mechanical pencil on sketch paper. In real life it looks much better but... Oh well. I'm actually quite happy with this drawing because I DON'T draw people. I am not good at it. They never come out quuite right. Or at least that's what I've always believed. This drawing has opened my eyes and now I believe that if I work at it I CAN draw people.

I'm thinking that copies of it would be excellent for use in collage and mixed media pieces.

Hi Lori,
We share a name and same spelling! Your drawing is very beautiful and yes it is important to "push" sometimes in order to learn what our potential is. Brilliant piece!

Don't ever believe there is something you cannot draw. You have natural abilities that your mind cannot stop unless it tells it too.
You did a fabulous job here, VERY NICE .
