Random sketch from an Instagram photo

Random Instagram sketch 2

This evening I found myself all wound up after a stressful day (and week) at work and an eerie walk around my deserted neighborhood.  I think being cooped up in the house is finally starting to get to me.  In search of something, anything, to get my mind off of everything that is going on, I dug out my sketchbook and decided to distract myself with a little drawing.  I scrolled through Instagram for inspiration (as one does), and found this photo by @orchidsheart, which I saw shared by @helens__closet.  About an hour later, I came up with this little sketch.  I almost never attempt to sketch people, so this was a bit of a challenge for me.  Although I am tempted to spend many more hours on it to “perfect” the shading (as if I am capable of such perfection, ha!), I’m calling it done and going to bed.

Many thanks to Ophelia for the inspiration and a welcome distraction on this unsettling night.
