As I told you before, you have a remarkable ability to draw what you see, just exactly as it is. I think that you should consider seriously some formal training in art.

Thank you all so much-- y'all here on HF are what started me up on drawing steadily again. Looking at everyone else's work inspired me! Your comments challenge me to try harder, too.

Lately I have actually have been thinking about taking some kind of art class sometime, but it'll have to wait until college, or maybe after I get a job ;)

Here's more progress. I had quite a bit of time to work on it today. I'm still working on the hands and the dress. I do have to say that I'm really pleased with how this one is turning out. I think it might end up being my personal best!

I drew this one a little differently. I usually start out with rough outlines and shading and "fix" it as I draw, but with this one I tried to get everything right the first time. I also am drawing left/top to right/bottom. I like doing it that way better now, actually.

Thats funny as we were never allowed beads like that as children as my mother was convinced we'd choke ourselves, strangle ourselves or push them up our noses - thinking back she was probably right!!!

Great progress - so much detail going into your recent work

Here it is all finished! I have to say I'm really happy with it :)

I have a very hard one next. It's of two yorkies, and I don't have that good of a picture to work from. I feel problems coming up... I may need some advice on fur and things. It's been two years or so since I have drawn any kind of dog. I'm doing it for my grandma's friend.

Your welcome. :)

I'm sure you'll do just fine with drawing that.

Great work on your drawings, as alwasy! Can't wait to see your yorkies! Wish I was as talented as you, I'm quite jealous :) You're the reason I keep working at it. Like I always say, if I ever draw something I even remotely like, I'll put it up for you. My problem is that I start something and get fed up halfway through! :)
Happy drawing!
