Thank you so much for your comments, tinyliny. You are so right! I learned a lot from that post. You and jaydee are godsends. :)

I just do freehand. Once I figure out where the subject will be on the paper, I just kinda go from there.

I was actually thinking about the "as a whole" thing, though I didn't really have words for it. I just hope I don't pay TOO much attention to detail so that it looks like there isn't movement or passion in the drawing. If it does end up looking like that I can always re-do it.

You know, I should do that... about making it "mine." I never thought about it before. I do have a little something of a surprise in store for this one, though! Two characters that aren't in the ref photo are going to be drawn in. It should look pretty good, I hope, and it shouldn't make the drawing look too crowded.

An arabian horse drawing I did today for a card:

It took me three and a half hours.

I've been quietly stalking your drawing for a while now, think I commented earlier, and all I can say is...wow. Just wow. You should become an artist. Really.

That's a lovely drawing of the Arabian, really captured the spirit and elegance
If you want to try something intricate and different - have a go at insects, some incredible ones out there especially when magnified - like alien beings!!

That's an idea, jaydee. I should try that sometime...

I've gotten a bit of progress on the Lord of the Rings drawing, but I'm not happy with Aragorn's face. I mean, it looks pretty much like the ref, but... I don't know. His eye is missing the fire that is in them in the ref. ARGE! I'll work on it some more tomorrow, hopefully, and then post it on here. I do have an orientation with Sonic tomorrow though, so it may or may not get done.

Since I have the job I will likely be slower with drawings, just so y'all know. :)

Here is a sketch of our great dane. I did it in about two hours, maybe a little bit less. It's meant to look sketchy. I drew it for my mom for Mother's Day the other day, but didn't want to upload it onto the computer in case she saw it before she was meant to. My Mom finds EVERYthing, and not on purpose, either!
