Horse is Complete!

I visited Lawrence two weeks ago with my sister to deliver my drawing to Becky. She seemed to love it Ā and she showed it off to a few friends :). I think I did a great job on it, but again, I did something slightly off. This time the nose was a little skinnier than in the photo. Sometimes I wish I could save draft versions on my pencil art and start from save points on new copies. Then I could see what looks best or what I should go with. That’s called Adobe Illustrator, though and it’s just not quite the same. Ah, well I’ll make do.

Dog Drawing is Complete

Best one yet! I finished this last weekend. This has been my most realistic by far. Specifically because of the background element.Ā WithoutĀ the surroundings, the subject looks merely like a portrait. For example, the horse looked incredible when it was finished, but it was definitely just a portrait. With the background, it would have better achieved photorealism. The Lighting in theĀ backgroundĀ is what adds that element of photorealism. I always seem to getĀ something wrong. In this drawing, it was the nose. Just a bit to long.
