Surprise Drawing – For My Friend

I am drawing something for my font, Charlotte. The subject was chosen at random. It’s supposed to be a surprise for her. Can’t let her find out. So for that reason, I also can’t share the photo. I’ll have it done by this weekend hopefully.

Work in Progress – A Dog Named Peaches

This is a dog I am drawing for a member of the DeviantArt community. Her dog’s name is Peaches. I started this on Friday and I’ll keep updated.

Pencil vs Camera

I had to share this awesomeness. So very creative.

Belgian painter Ben Heine has been taking photos and drawing almost since he was 10 years old. This “Pencil Vs Camera” series is nothing but the result of several years of graphic exploration and a logic consequence of his artistic evolution, says Ben. But the real idea came while he was watching television and writing a letter at the same time.

Regarding Etsy and the Car Drawing

No art updates today. I promise I’ll start more eagle progress, though. So with the news: I have joined Etsy, a large community of artists selling their work. (There’s more to it than that but I’ll just let you visit their site. Maybe you’ll stumble upon something you like). Anyway, I’ve signed up there but I haven’t added any selling options. I’ll say when I do.

Recently I uploaded my Dodge Dart. I shouldn’t be too worried, but I dont know what to expect from the judges. Since I’ve uploaded my entry, I’ve been periodically viewing other artists entries. So far I’ve seen about ten I’m worried about. Sometimes judges don’t prefer hyper realism because it’s “like copying” and doesn’t have much meaning for that reason. Those are generally the deep thinking judges. However, art should be eye-catching, and what I really need is a few double-takes from the judges. Even still, there are other good artists out there. To see the entries, go here.

That’s all for today folks,

Dog Drawing – Gallery of Progress

This is a collection of pictures of my progress on the dog. I”ll continue to add until I’m done

Project – Dog Drawing Progress 2

So as an attempt at a timelapse video, I’ve been periodically taking pictures of my progress. I’ll upload the gallery and the video/slideshow when I’m done. I might even do a step-by-step of techniques and stuff. Not really that fancy, but once I get a camera that can handle time-lapse, I’ll really have something to show for. So again, find the picture I’m drawing off of here. I take that back. The actual picture is much smoother than my drawing but then I would have to draw bigger for better looking art

Project – Dog Drawing Progress

Here I go again, beginning yet another piece of art without finishing the last. I will continue my eagle. But I’m drawing this one for a girl I know. This is the progress on the dog that I had posted in my “Project – Subjects” post.

Dodge Dart – Finished

I’ve worked a couple days on this Dodge Dart art. I tried to get it as detailed and realistic as possible and I added a dart to go with the logo for the theme. I’m really hoping I get first place. My first purchase if I win the prize money will be an Intuos from Wacom to expand my digital art.

Dodge Dart – Contest Drawing

Im entering an art contest to win up to $2,000. There are two categories, digital and traditional art, and three winners from each. I am doing traditional art. The art has to be inspired by the Dodge Dart 2013. I  started this yesterday:

 

Project – Eagle (Progress)

This much already! I only started last night at 9:30. Stopped at ten. Worked a little bit in during school (not in class, of course). Ill keep adding progress as I go. Maybe on my next drawing I’ll attempt a time-lapse video.

Project – Subjects

This is a collection of animals I am going to draw. I am using them all as practice.  Of course ill complete all of them to the best of my ability; they are practice to improve my realism. They will all be drawn in graphite for the highest detail and realism possible. I’m starting with the eagle.
