I'm not bad - I'm just drawn that way Posted by Hello

I thought it would be oh-so boring to simply take a photo of my big preggy self and post it to the blog. A drawing is so much more subtle (and, comfortingly, a lot less accurate). It took me six attempts to produce the version on the right - one in which my body parts aren't completely out of proportion. That's what happens when you stop drawing for more than a year, I guess.

So anyway, this is more or less what I look like at nearly 29 weeks. Actually, I'm a little bigger than I look in the drawing because I couldn't quite get the rotundity right.

Aren't you clever? I'd love to see more of your drawings.

Violet, brill picture, but sorry, you are just not that tall!!!!

frally: ah, I'm really out of practice. If you want to see my old stuff, click on the link at the right that says "Some of my artwork".

mtnw: yeah it is. Also, my eyes have become asymetrical and my nose has changed shape (the bit about the hair is true though).

kazzer: oh yes I am!

shit! if that's what you really look like, you've gotten ginormous since I last saw you! which was only a few weeks ago, wasn't it? no, maybe 4? also your neck has elongated. possibly.

Nice pic! Looks JUST like you (i.e. dressed in black with attitude!).

Editter: Well, I never said it was photo-perfect...but I am a lot bigger than when you last saw me which was probably about three months ago

Desiree: it just goes to show that the mere slip of the hand can put a sneer on your face which can't be rubbed off...

Very cool. I wish I was a better artist. I'd settle for being able to draw some folds and shading though.

Thanks - though I used to draw much better that this. Folds, and drapery in general, is quite to draw - especially if it's patterned.
