Dreamcatcher5 -- Yep, it would be pretty hard to draw my horse in real life, too. She's far to inquisitive.
Well, right now I'm taking a little break from drawings for others, but as soon as I start it up again I'll post it on here for ya! I just want to practice different things for a while. I'm actually thinking about some close up studies after this LotR drawing.
jaydee -- Ohhh. I see what you mean now. I thought you thought it was a drawing. Oops. You are right then. I didn't even think about that. I just thought somebody edited some photos together and put foggy stuff around it. It just looked like fun to draw so...
Thanks for bringing it up though. I'll keep that in mind. :)
Btw, I looked in your album and saw your acrylic flower. WOWZA. It's so beautiful! I do want to retry some flowers eventually for sure. Someone on deviantART is critiquing my latest drawings, and she said that the flower is too liney and is mostly one tone. On her advice I am trying to use my good drawing pencils on this drawing instead of just the mechanical pencil so I have a bigger range of tones.
tinyliny -- Yep. Right now I'm trying to focus on details and I thought this one would be good for that. I've never drawn fog or rocks before, either, so this will be good all-around practice. It also should keep me from getting bored anyway! Sometimes when my drawing only has one or two main subjects I get bored with it and lose my motivation. This picture has several subjects so it should keep me busy.
And finally, here is what I have so far! I'm currently working on Aragorn's face and armor. I will draw his hair after that. sc00ec165d.jpg
(On the advice of that same lady I am sort of mapping out the shadows first, and THEN drawing in the details. Thoughts on that?)
