Horse Drawing

Horse Drawing

I also found this picture of the horse in a how to draw animals book.

It was a great challenge for me, I had a lot of fun shading this drawing of the horse.

I use HB and 2B pencils and a little bit of black pastel.

**Note from Kerry:
Hi Sergio, this is so good! You must be proud of yourself. Your signature trademark - pencils with a dash of pastel. The combination really works for you. I'll have to give it a try and see what I can achieve. This is a very nice drawing. Good work.

My Other Horse

My Other Horse Drawing

My Other Horse Drawing

This horse was also from the same how to draw animal’s book.
It was Saturday morning January 26, 1993 like 4:00 AM when I started to work on this drawing.
I had only one HB pencil and normal white paper and coffee with oriole cookies.

To do the shading on the darker tones I pressed harder on my HB pencil. The time went so fast, I finished around 12:00 PM and went back to sleep.

**Note from Kerry:
Hi Sergio, that sounds like a lovely morning! You must have been completely satisfied with your work, it is fantastic.

Hi AAD friends,
I saw this picture in a how to draw animals book. I love the fact that it had a lot of details on the owl feathers.

It was a great challenge when you are learning how to draw.

I tried this three times until I was satisfied.

**Note from Kerry:
Gee Sergio, this is a really nice drawing. I'm impressed with your work. Truly beautiful.

Hi ADD family, I drew this deer from a book, it is called "How to Draw Animals".

I tried my best to draw just like the artist from the book. I used hb + 6b pencils.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Sergio, I am sure the artist would be proud of your version of the deer. I think it is very well done and it gives the viewer a lot of interesting aspects to observe.

Stipple drawing of an Alsation

by Sharon Du Plessis
(Gauteng, South Africa)

Stippling

Stippling

This was another experimental quick drawing, called stippling.
I used a pen & ink technique, without any shading, but precise drawing was the aim here, in a little amount of time, which improves speed and accuracy, to the best of my ability.
Once more, I was impressed by what I can achieve, when needed.
Learner artists should do these exercises to improve their skills, from time to time, in order to be spontaneous and gain confidence, seeing that without confidence, you will not get very far in the art-world.

Note from Kerry:

Sharon, I love stippling, it's one of my favorite techniques. Also, I find the overall effect quite attractive. You've done a great job with your 'quick' drawing.

Zebras

(Shimoga, India)


This is one of my favorite sketches.

Hmmm, drawing different strokes is a bit difficult i guess. It is a great pleasure when you get a beautiful result after putting in a great effort.

Note from Kerry:
Oh wow Sindhu, this is just so lovely! You have excelled and you can be very proud of this piece.

Dog Drawing -Thank You

by Heidi
(Southern Oregon)

Thank You for Help with Dog Drawing

Thank You for Help with Dog Drawing

I've lightened up some areas of the hair and fixed the eyes. What do you think? I now can't decide if I should darken the background or leave it white... Thank you to everyone who gave me advice, it helped a great deal! I'm actually pretty happy with how the drawing has turned out, can't wait to try another (maybe not with white hair though)!

Also, if anyone has suggestions on how to frame this (and other drawings) I would appreciate knowing. I've never attempted to put my drawings in a frame, but since this is a gift I think I should. (by the way, this drawing is about 5in by 7in)


artist
Note from Kerry:
Hello Heidi
I think you have done a terrific job of drawing Scooter - he looks absolutely adorable. You've made him life-like and I feel like I can reach out and pat him.
Here is the link to your original post:
Need help with dog drawing
Re the background, well, that's up to you and what you like. Most artists do a dark background to highlight a light topic but would you be able to do that now without ruining it? It's risky. I think your friend will be delighted with this and very proud of you!
Frames can be expensive if you get it professionally framed at an Art store. Or, you can buy a frame from Walmart or somewhere like that - there are nice ones around - and do it yourself. (Similar to popping a photo in a frame.)
You have every reason to be proud of this piece, it's great work, Heidi.

Whitetail

by Rhonda
(Jacksonville, NC USA)


I drew and scanned this picture of a whitetail.

The scanner does not show the fine shading of the drawing.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Rhonda,
It's true that scanning doesn't do our drawings real justice but I can clearly see that your drawing is so very well done. He looks like he's ready to sprint away now that he has seen us. Great job!

Mighty Elephant

Mighty Elephant

Mighty Elephant

Hi,

I am a 35 year old and happen to discover of late that i could drawwwwww. Still have not got over this reality myself so you can imagine the reaction of all my loved ones.

Well, it all started when i just drew a bird from my little ones drawing book. My family encouraged me and i thought "why not give it a hand"

And as i drew i realised that i could do a good job.

Have made around 8 sketches so far. This elephant is one of them and i thought of sharing it on the net.


***Note from Kerry:
Welcome, artist Rekha! This drawing is really good, no wonder your family are so proud.

A Ferocious Tiger

by Salil
(Pune, India)


I saw many drawings done on tigers throughout the previous issues and was trying to make a drawing of the same.

I have tried to copy this drawing from one of the photos on the internet. I am not particularly happy with the shading of the tiger's nose.

Drawing was done with a pencil and shading was done completely with a black ballpen.

Thanks,
Salil


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Salil,
Gosh, that is so good! I can't see a single thing wrong with the nose, it's a terrific piece of work.
