The Gaze

Those look and I was hooked.

Almost every one of my sketches is from a photo reference, and you can see this one in the background. It was time to clean off the bookshelves a bit so the 2000 National Geographic magazines got sliced and diced...yeah, I know, I think they are worthy of saving too, but it just ain't happening in my house. I've set my limit at ten year's worth at one time.

This particular photo came from the February issue. If anyone is truly interested, I'll research the photographer's name (this will be a standing offer for future posts as well). Ha...a reason to comment!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your excellent sketch reminded me of why I cannot go into the great ape house at the zoo anymore. It moves me to tears to see them behind bars, gazing out into peoples' eyes. Just ain't right!
