I am sure ya'll other artists would agree.
I love it!

I found a drawing I did while I was visiting friends a few weeks ago. I was pretty drunk at the time and saw a mechanical pencil sitting on the counter, then proceeded to grab a sheet of printer paper. Although very rough in composition, I do like how in my inebriated state I did not hold back on creating extreme contrasts, something I tend to be timid to accomplish sober...lol.

Also, here is tonight's progress on the colored pencil drawing. All finished with the head shot and getting started on the jumping shot.

Equus,

I love your "drunk" sketch@! SEriously. It is so strong!!!! Would be neat to scan it and digitally manip it .

As an aside, I used to get stoned and draw all the time back in the Uni days. I always thought I was creating a masterpiece, but when I saw it sober, it was a jumbled POS.

I am working on a rather tedious shi tzu painting and needed to put my paint brushes down for the night. Here's a doodle I did of a friend of mine riding one of her favorite horses. I love to do pen sketches to unwind when the pressure of commissions gets to me.
