~~Full view takes A TON of the blurriness away! ~~
I just started "seriously" drawing... In the past week I've really started seriously doing pencil drawings, and it's been really fun!
I'm still working on my drawing-fur skills, seeing as I've never really done it seriously before, but I think for a first attempt (well, this is actually the fourth of the three drawings I'm going to post now) it came out really well.
I used an AWESOME photo of a lion I found on photobucket for reference... sadly I can't find the picture (if you search "lion" on google I'm sure you'll find it somewhere. )
EDIT: I replaced it with a cleaned up version (I got rid of all the horrible pencil smudges and stuff on the sides)
Apresento-lhes Guaraná, o Lobo-guará! Nunca fui muito boa para fazer desenhos de animais antropomórficos. Tinha inventado esse personagem há alguns anos, mas nunca gostava de como o desenhava. Só agora q consegui faze-lo com uma aparência menos humana possível e q gostei
Treinando paths e paciência. Fundo foi foto montagem
---- Here is Guaraná, the maned-wolf! I'm not very into anthro characters. I invented this one some years ago but only now I was able to draw it in a way I like it.
I'm practising the paths (something I discovered recently) and patience.... The background was a photo-manipulation
Diptych, each panel is 12"x18" black paper Colored pencil ~20 hours of work
No prints. I had a very difficult time getting it to scan this well, and I debated not posting it at all because of the quality. Each panel required 4 scans, and you can see a ghosting on the edges of the paper because it couldn't lay flat.
This piece was inspired a couple months back, when I was at Half Moon Bay watching the moon over the ocean on a very cold fall night. I've been turning it over and over in my head, and this is what I finally came up with.
I am absolutely ecstatic with how the original turned out. I wish all of you could see it. This digital image really doesn't do it justice.
i just kinda had fun with it. i didn't want to draw the kittyfeets so we'll pretend there are some conveniently placed rocks there. remember drawing stick figures when you were little, and not knowing how to do the feet, so they were always standing in a field of tall grass? .. yeah. *gryn*
