My first and probably last try

I saw the drawings on here by others and thought they looked really good so I gave it a try. It took me like an hour and a half to draw this picture so I think I am done with that. Some things are better left to the experts, and there are definantly some on here. Anyway still had to post it. The scanner changed it a bit too, not sure how to run all this technology.

The original and then the sketch

I think that's really good! Certainly better than I could do, by far.

Everything about this tells me you are a natural! Try relaxing your hand and letting the graphite flow softer...you have a death-grip on the pencil! Don't worry about getting everything right at the very beginning. Loose soft strokes will get you there!

Well, you couldn't have chosen a harder subject; children! Their facial porportions are not the same as an adult's, and then haveing it holding a horse's ear; man, that's hard. Is this your daughter? Anyway, if you enjoy drawing, and I think you did rather well, dont' give up after one try. That photo has a lot of nice feeling in it and that is always nice when turning it into a drawing, but it's also exceedingly difficult for a first try. Work you way up to humans and children, start with just horse heads.

Well to keep fairness between my girls I had to draw another one, but that is probably the last.

Anyway prussian blue, that is kind of neat that from my picture you can tell how I hold the pencil in my hand. Your correct in what you said.

Here it is:

Yes that is my daughter, and thanks for the advice on just starting with animals I don't know anything about art really except a ceramics class in high school. But in my favor it is an upgrade from my previous stick figures.

This is a great photo! Utilize the dramatic shadowing it has...it will give the subjects form and substance! Much nicer touch with the pencil....and easier on your fingers!
