Sunday Sketches -- Thomas Times Three (D)

Today's post has been a few months in the making.  This year I've been reading through a favorite author's entire published works, starting with his literary debut and moving onward chronologically, and the often tragic and always glorious tales of Thomas Hardy have therefore definitely made their way into my sketchbook on the occasional Sunday.  And so, with entries ranging from February through April (but always on Sunday!), I present a trio of character collages from Hardy's first three novels.

Desperate Indeed!, or, One Cytherea Too Many
The Many Loves of Fancy Day, or, Oh, COME On, Fancy
What's a Girl To Do?, or, Poor Elfride and Her Big Blue Eyes

Sunday Sketches (J)

It's been a long time since I did some Sunday Sketches.  Lately I have been feeling low on the inspiration scale, and recently this was what I could come up with--exercising little Pencil People (there was no pen at hand...I tried to resist using an eraser).  Hurrah for fitness and for arts!
The archer man is one of my favorites, as is that ribbon dancer, whose pose is probably totally impossible in real life.  Side note: many of these were inspired by the thought of "What other games are there on Wii Sports...?"
