Old Glory - EDM #88


I thought this was going to be so easy. It was not easy even though it's only a sketch. My eyes kept getting crossed with all the stripes and I knew I couldn't take artistic license -- there had to be the correct number of stripes so I had to get it right. Just goes to show that sometimes the object we think is going to be difficult is not so difficult. Yet the one we think of as "easy" is not so easy. I like my "breezy" version below better. Which one do you like?

I've always had a difficult time drawing the American flag. It's hard to draw what you see, versus what you know is there. I think the thing to remember is that all those stripes and stars might not always be visible. However, you did a great job here!
