Sketch practice #91

Daily Art 01-02-18 still life sketch in graphite number 91 - single brogue shoe

My goal today was to make long, soft pencil lines instead of short, choppy ones. I'd say I made progress in this direction, but it definitely needs more work.

I am happy with the fact that I didn't get obsessive about any of the details! Typically I would have wanted to round out the knot tied in the laces but I allowed them to be more angular and loose.

One thing that would have improved the toe area: draw a line down the actual center of the top, from the split to the tip of the toe, as if it were a face and I was locating the centerline and features along it. I can see that it's wonky the way it's drawn right now.
