Talking

Aww! Thank you so much guys! :)

Here is a Calalily I just finished. It's the first real flower I have ever done, and it's not perfect, so critiques are very welcome. I promise it looks a bit better in person though-- it was slightly too big to fit in the scanner so I had to keep the lid partly open.

Please view the full image.

I used a white charcoal pencil I found to make the flower whiter. I like it!

It's drawn on Strathmore Sketch paper. I got it and Strathmore Drawing paper for my 16th birthday a little while ago. This is the first time I've used it!

I finally am drawing something for me :) I'm excited! I chose to draw this:

Return of the King Poster-794994-1.jpg

This is the line drawing. I have finished the sword and most of Aragorn's hand since this, but want to draw more before I upload it again.

WOW...
That looks really hard to draw.
But judging by your talent, it will surely come out breathtaking and beautiful.
About the flower, that is actually my Dad's favourite flower! I'll show him your drawing for sure!

Please don't hate me for saying this - I am a huge fan and really admire your talents
BUT
I would much prefer that you worked from real life - take photographs etc to use as resource materials than see you imitate someone elses work
I'm sure you'll make a great job of it but honestly you are much much better than that

Thanks you all!

jaydee~ Your advice matters to me! However... it actually is a photo, not a drawing. I turned it black and white to post on here so that I can compare. I can post the colored version if you like.

I should try to draw from real life, without any photo at all ("still life"). It would be good practice for me. What a really want is to draw from my own imagination at times. You get a picture in your head and just want to transfer it to paper. Haven't gotten there, yet!

Hmm...I'm absolutely rubbish at drawing from a real life model, although I once did a pretty good pencil drawing of my dog as he was lying on the couch gracefully
It's pretty hard to draw Luca from real-life, because he'll just come over to eat your paper and snuffle all over it
