Some pencil sketches

Here are some pencil sketches I did from magazine pictures a while back.  I'm happy with them but feel like a bit of a cheat because I used a grid to get the proportions right.

Does anyone know if I can put pictures side by side?  And if so how?


  1. You would think, but I can't recall a blog with pictures side by side.
    Anyway, your art work is very nice. With practice, you can give up the grid.

  2. Great artwork! I have seen paid artists online that still grid out and erase. I dont think you can do side by side either. I did read your other post but sometimes I dont really know what to say and what I think after I read it is mmmmmmm.... I do know though I am considering going to a psychologist, i have never been and I think it might be helpful? I would like to get rid of anxiety attacks and one day get off antidepressants. Hope you have a great day. Hugs, Kim

  3. First of all, I have to say I am incredibly jealous of people with artistic talent and that your drawings are wonderful.

    As to answer your on how to put pictures side by side--well I believe that you would have to go to the design tab in blogger, then adjust widths, making your actual posts wider than they currently are. After that, you can upload the pictures to the blog post. Click on the first one and a small popup should appear at the bottom where you can decide what size the picture should be. Click on small. Then click on Right for the first picture. On the second picture, click on small again and then click on center. If they don't appear to be side by side mess around with the backspace button until they show up. If you backspace too far one picture might disappear, but all you have to do is hit the little undo button in the left hand corner of the post. Hope it helps =)
