"Bandanna Mosley"

Here's a drawing of my friends' dog. I was bored at work today and drew it in about an hour and 1/2 or so...I screwed up on the bandanna pattern. And I spelled Bandanna wrong on the picture but it's since been changed :P

another cool website

So a friend of mine, posted on my myspace page this really neat website that I had never heard about but it's really cool... there's a lot of really talented people that post up art work on this site, very interesting drawings and concepts. I was very impressed. So take a look, stroll around the site, there's lots to see and be amazed by :)

My apologies for the bad quality of this post, I had to take a picture of this with my digital camera due to the size of the drawing (11" x 14") the one on the bottom. The photo on the top was only a tiny wallet size. So hopefully it's an accurate rendition. The father of the baby seemed to like it. Let me know what you think.

"Little Diva"

And here it is, the last one in the series of the little girl named "Natalie". I haven't shown the parents yet, I did this one more for my portfolio than anything and because I thought this picture was cute. Here's the photo I got it from:

Reaction time

So George, the guy I drew the picture of his mom for, loved that picture (I think I already posted that, but I could be wrong). The proud parents of "NattieBug", and "NoodleBug", love those two pictures and the mom adores the drawing of her and the baby called "Rhonda's Love", I still haven't heard word on the dad and the baby drawing called "Jon's Love"...perhaps because I've discovered that the cheeks are off on both the baby and the dad, I'll make the adjustments, resend to the parents and re-post, and post reactions if I get any. The picture of "Alec and May" went over well, they said it was "tight", so that's good :P I have two new baby pictures to post up and soon to be a third and fourth, although the fourth one I'm having doubts about because the commission is for an 11" x 14" drawing...I haven't done a drawing that size in quite some time and so far just the texture of the paper is throwing me off (I've been doing all the others on 8 1/2" x 11" letter size copy paper, really smooth texture, as opposed to "normal" drawing paper which is more porus and has an odd texture about it- we'll see), hopefully all goes well, I'll post it up whether it looks good or not, you know me, I like posting up the good, the bad, and the cross-eyed :P
I guess I could start posting up the original photo to go with the drawing so I could get more feed-back than from just the people I'm drawing for, huh? Duh! :D

Alec and May

Here's another drawing...I'll hopefully remember to post the reaction- these people don't know that I can draw, I just asked if I could draw their picture from this photograph-they looked at me funny and said sure. So we'll see how it goes :P

"Jon's Love"

This is one of the last drawings in a series of this adorable little girl named Natalie. This is her with her dad Jon.

I just have to say that I don't think this drawing is very good. But I don't think I could re-draw it to look any better. See, Jon and I have known each other since we were three, and I've tried to draw this guy like 3 different times now...and the drawing never looks like him. I have a theory on this though. I don't think I can draw people I know. Especially if I've known them for long periods of time- mainly because I can still remember how they look when they were younger- not that it's how they look in the photo that I'm drawing from, but apparently I have some mental tick or something and it blocks me from being able to draw the picture right. I think parts of this drawing look like him, but I don't think it completely looks like him. I think the little girl looks right. But I could be wrong, I'm waiting on feed-back from Jon and his wife right now to see what they think of the drawing to see if they want me to re-draw it. I just can't figure out what's wrong with me when it comes to drawing people I know.
Anyway, Happy Easter everyone.
