To continue the exercises, I searched free online coloring pages for a line drawing to work from. I had to erase a bit because I tend to get more heavy-handed as I search and get lost, I need to work on keeping it light and sketchy.
Running a bit "behind" but this is my attempt at simplifying the boots before watching Stan's demo of them. I definitely got caught up in the detail of the laces as others did. I'm looking forward to watching the video now to try to better understand what is important versus noise. I'm also seeing the perspective and proportion issues, but, later... they're just boots.
