Psychedelic In Santo Tomas, Mexico

by Melissa
(Tempe, AZ.)

Santo Tomas Foot

Santo Tomas Foot


Well, I first started with the first sketch of the foot. Then, I was a little bored in Mexico with not a lot of drawing options readily available, so I found a cool picture in a magazine and tweaked some things and came up with this. That's the whole story....

**Note from Kerry:
This is good, too, Melissa. Even though you feel you've copied the drawing, you added your own touch. So, it does contain a little bit of you. Don't worry, we all copy. That's what art is, whether it be copied from nature or a book, it doesn't matter. You have to start somewhere.

Keep going, you're good!

Monster In Graphite

Monster In Graphite

Monster In Graphite

This is a graphite drawing one of my favorites, I've done it several times. I used a 300lb, cold press paper and a combo 3-b & 6-b pencils.

Hope you all like it.. I have many more I am self taught artist for 30+years, I prefer acrylics but often find myself with pencil in hand..


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Keith, it's interesting comparing this one with the one you did in acrylic. I think it's always good to stay in touch with pencil.

Be Fast

Be Fast......

Be Fast......

There is nothing to say very special about this drawing....

I searched for something very interesting to draw...when I found this picture of a horse racer, I was amazed....so I tried drawing it...

***Note from Kerry:
Wow Nithya, this would have taken a lot of patience - you must be very proud of this one. It's well done!

I'm curious, is the background just plain paper, or have you used some type of effect?

Burning Heart

I've just started to really get into drawing and wanted to try shading. The result is what I call the Burning Heart.

Hopefully more to come. I used charcoal and tissue paper and just played around with my imagination.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Donnie, this is fabulous! Thanks for telling us which materials you used, that is much appreciated. It's interesting.

A Piece Of My Brain

A Piece Of My Brain

This is another doodle sketch with machines in mind. The memorable Basil Fawlty gave me the idea for the title.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Nick, I'm glad you mentioned you had machines in mind! Otherwise, I'd be quite worried for your brain.

You are very good at doodling. It's fun, isn't it?

Hidden Fruit

by Robin
(Tennessee USA)

Hidden Fruit

Hidden Fruit

I drew this pencil art with just a number 2 lead pencil.

When I am drawing, I think of an idea of something that my children can keep or hand down to their children.

My image of the fruit was," What's the best way to display your art"? By adding a touch of art into your own home.

It's so nice to see someone's art displayed on walls, tables or frames. Art seems to be an invite to a nice conversation piece.

Hope everyone enjoys my art!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Robin, I agree, it's nice to see artwork up on the walls of homes. It's especially nice if it's done by the residing artist. I like your drawing, well done!

Organic Shapes

Organic

Organic

With this drawing, my thought was to create shapes that were vaguely suggestive of human body parts.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Nick, your art is interesting. I like examining it to find what you are expressing.

Few old men playing cards

by Sharon Du Plessis

Cards in the park

Cards in the park

This drawing I love very much! I know I'm not perfect, but I think I've outdone myself with this one, seeing the charcoal makes it look like a real scene.
When I don't feel like detailed drawings, I use charcoal to create the effect I want, even if I do surprise myself sometimes with the outcome- sometimes good, sometimes well, not too bad!


artist
Note from Kerry:

Yes Sharon, I love this one too! You have done a very good job with style and effect, I am full of admiration for your work.
Using Charcoal is terrific for teaching us not to get bogged down in detail. I think it's a wonderful medium to learn the freedom of letting go.

After a long time, I started drawing again recently.

I used to draw when I was a high school boy. Now I am almost 32.

I am putting my sketch here to hear some comments (good or bad) from you guys.

** Note from Kerry:
I'm so glad to hear you've started drawing again, Salam. I think your sketch of Einstein is very good, and I like the touch of humor. Well done!

Who's To Blame?

by Jordan Baines Aged 16
(Portsmouth, England)

Bush...TwinTowers...Binladin

Bush...TwinTowers...Binladin

I'm an Art Student starting college in September and i did this piece for my B-tec level 2 art exam in school this April. I came around to the idea of this through the title we were given; Conceal and Reveal.

Eventually i realised what i wanted to do it about and it was something i feel very strong about which is, 9/11.

I go onto photoshop and created this picture of the twin towers, bush and binladin and merged them together adding effects, styles and what ever came to mind. the effects i added made the picture become distorted sorta and the lines become at an angle as you see in the picture.

It also become black and grey like a comic book style so it made perfect for using graphite pencils. so thats why it looks kinda scruffy but in fact that is how i created it to look like, with the jagged lines and an angle and what not.

It had taken me 12 hours to fully complete:)
Hope you like it, please rate it!!
see ya. thankyouuu.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jordan, I can see that a lot of work has gone into this drawing. I think it is really good, too. Definitely worth the full 5 stars! It is expressive and I like your effects.
