I might say this in every post that I label ‘drawings’, but I’m not really an artist. I enjoy drawing, but I definitely know that I have a looooooooong way to go if I want to perfect the art, but it’s not really where I want to focus my attention – so it is what it is.
My great-grandmother was a beautiful artist and painted many wonderful paintings. My parents have had one in their home for as long as I can remember. I think somewhere I have a picture of it, but do I know where currently? No.
My daughter is showing great strength in her artistic abilities, so perhaps that artistic gene in our family skips a couple generations? Who knows…
Anyway, I wanted to update our family blog with the superheroes my kids really enjoy. I wanted to make each of them their favorite and I wasn’t finding anything out there in the digital world, so I went about creating my own.
I used other pictures as a starting point, but freehanded my own images with pencil, went over them with black marker and colored them in. I then scanned them in the computer and did some editing in my photo editing software.
