    My animal art

    I thought I would post a couple of my drawings on here just for fun. I have been drawing a really long time but these two I am actually going to mat and frame as part of my christmas present for my parents and my aunt. They are both done in colored pencil, which I don't use as often as I prefer graphite pencil. I want to start using color though so I can capture the vibrant color of parrots. Anyways, the first is my parents dog Lucy. She is a beagle/jack russell terrier mix. The second is my aunts dog Nina, and she is a black lab mix. I am working on a third for my other aunt and it is her Australian Shepherd Emma. Emma is a blue merle, so anyone who knows what merle coloring is like, this is going to be a difficult one. Well here they are:

    Re: My animal art

    Thanks, taking digital pictures seems to make the colors off, but that is pretty much kow they are. I have other pics but they are in my sketch book so taking pics of those were harder. Anyways, here are some of them:

    This is from a photo but I changed a lot on it:



    Here is a paint horse. The pic I got from an art instruction book:



    and here is one of Marilyn Monroe mind you I don't draw people very well, but my friend wanted me to try this.




    I have more but haven't taken pics of them, I do have a few of birds and parrots though

    Re: My animal art

    I love the bird, and the horse! Is that a green cheek?

    Yeah, digital cameras don't always capture your stuff in the best light - mine certainly doesn't. XD

    And drawing people - yuck. I suck at it. XD You seem better than me at it.

    Those are all so beautiful!

    I prefer to draw in graphite too, I suck with colour, my results are just never as good.
