News – Unfinished Projects

 

I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. You can see just how bad I am about finishing my art from my latest posts:

Eagle Drawing

First, there’s my eagle. It may appear finished or “purposely unfinished” but looks can be deceiving. The head is the most intricate part I have to detail. (And that’s the case with most human/animal subjects). That’s a good thing. Now  can go back and continue to smooth out and fill in. I didn’t get past what I currently have, because I only had printouts of two sections of the birds head. When I didn’t have time to print, my interest ran low and I moved to the dog.

Dog Drawing

As for the dog, you can still say it looks “artistically unfinished”. But again, the rest of the photo is background. I want background. the art just doesn’t look quite as realistic if you don’t incorporate the out-of -focus parts of the image. It adds depth of field making it look more photorealistic.

A Dog Named Peaches

The dog named Peaches is coming along a little more. there’s quite a bit of detailing to do on the white neck fur and the fur on the side of the mouth. The rest is a lot of subtly detailed black fur. I’ll post extra progress tomorrow.

Cat Drawing

The more recent cat drawing has a deadline, Sunday. That’s a little more incentive to finish. I’ve still got two in-focus legs and an out-of-focus body. I can’t wait to see Charlotte’s reaction. I’ll upload any additions tomorrow.

I drew a little something tonight. I don’t know if I was trying to incorporate meaning into it or not. I just saw one of those “Objects in mirror are closer than they appear” labels and drew a symbolic sketch based off of it. Stay tuned to see it tomorrow. I just didn’t have time to scan the picture tonight. That’s all for today folks!

Next Drawing

I plan to draw this beautiful dove. It was part of a photo series in this post. I will do my absolute best to complete this piece of work. No more unfinished business.

Bird Drawing

I drew this in under 45 minutes with Micron art pens. I  used a photograph from a National Geographic article of a bird perched sideways on vertical branches.  This is very small, just about 1.75 inches x 1.75 inches.

Surprise Drawing – Cat Progress

So I’ve informed my friend Charlotte not to look a my blog or else she’d ruin the surprise. (Of not knowing what I’m drawing her). I hope she doesn’t hate cats. That would pose as a dilemma. Because here’s my progress on the drawing:

And here’s the full picture I’m drawing:

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.

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 – 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.

Dove

So I’ve meant to draw in white charcoal. Finally got around to it. This is a drawing of a dove. i wanted to see how easy white charcoal is. Actually I would think it would be easier because on black paper, you can just use black charcoal to “erase”. if you draw something in white, it’s much easier to cover with black. On white paper, erasing just doesn’t  always do what you want.
