Artistically Challenged

I bravely had a shot at Frank's tag His challenge was to draw yourself as in your profile pic in 12 lines. HA! I'm a detail person - 12 lines does not crack it for me. Besides when it's so wiggly, every line feels like a practise run. So I decided that I would be a rebel like Shiny (By the way, do yourselves a favour - check out her blog - this lady can write, she is smart and funny) Frank tells us he worked with a mouse: he needs to try the little pad/index finger combo! Seriously My pic looks as though it had been drawn by an alcoholic in DT's. But with lots of use of the eraser (not allowed to say 'rubber' any more!) and LOTS more lines than 12, I finally came up with this: It looks so SAD being so tiny I didn't plan it that way and dunno how to make it bigger How I hate being a cyber-ig! Now before you laugh at my effort (and you're allowed to, I did), go give it try - You'll find instructions on Frank's blog Its actually a lot of fun Just heard I am eating out tonight OH HAPPY DAY, HAPPY DAY! Tra-la-la-la-la No cooking for me :-DDDD

Good show Allie!

I checked this from my phone, so yr 'small' rendition is a little spec right now, which had me reaching for my non existant reading specs. Hehe.

Thanx 4 playing along. And remember there's a master piece in Paris called the Mona Lisa that's also quite small. I think yours is better though. ;-)

That is so good. Seriously. YOu and Frank can go sit in the corner and snicker when I post mine!!!

I cant draw with a pencil and TRACING PAPER so this is such a WRONG tag....

Hate to show my ignorance is wider spread than cyber
Anyhoo, ,that he might take issue with your comparison

But thanks for being nice anyway :-)

Am hoping to spur some of the others into action

Seriously Mel - it is SO frustrating!
The little pen will NOT do what you want it to - but its quite zone-ish if you get into it - so give it a bash when you have a spare hour

*grin*

I like it - I suck so bad at drawing - I really have a desire to do it, but always end up frustrated by how crappy it looks.

Kirsty said...

wow! that is talent! I'm gonna have a bash at it now... because in my desperation, I managed to get 2 tags!

That is so good!

Its totally strengthening my resolve to ignore FJ's tag... I can hardly even write on my pictures, let alone do a self-portrait...
