Marty's Picture

by Martin Hamilton
(Fairmount, Indiana-U.S.A.)


Hello everyone:

I was sitting watching TV and I decided to draw a portrait of me in my entires so here it is, now please don't laugh you'll get at my age one day. You may also know I'm not watching TV. I can't do that and draw now can I?

Anyway my wife says I can't do two things at once.

And besides that, it is fun to draw by candle light, wouldn't you say so?

I used just a # 2 art pencil. This drawing is free handed from one of Andrew Loomis's artbooks.

I added the room, just to give it more depth and room for a story.

I think I can write a story from it. And I'll do it by candle light, boy I hope my candle doesn't burn out before I get the story done. Please someone send me bigger candles. Ha! Ha!

I love to have fun drawing.

I do all my drawings and paintings free handed.

Please let me know how you like the drawing of me! Ha! Ha!

I would really like to know if anyone really enjoys this drawing.

Thank You and God Bless

Marty!


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Marty!
I think your drawing is fantastic! It exudes fun and mischief. I must say, I don't think he looks anything like you, I think you might be funning us!

Hello everyone.

Here's a drawing I did just using a # 2 pencil.

I do have art pencils, however I keep some paper and a pencil on the coffee table in front of the tv. Well when the thought enters my great creative mind (I have to brag a little on me, as I'm the only one I have - lol) -- Back to my story, I just start drawing lines and well, this is what came from it.

I just had to use this story again. I would love for you to look at all my drawings and print them out for your children to look at and to color if they want. You could also use my drawings as a coloring book for your children. You could have them color them then save all the coloring pages for fond memories. Just an idea for all that are interested.

Or just ask Kerry to give you my email address, then email me as I have a lot of drawings to be used for a coloring book for kids. Heck you may want to color them also.

I do hope you enjoy it, you can also print it out and let your kiddies color it.

Thanks....Marty!



***Note from Kerry:
Hi Marty,
You continue to amaze me with your generosity and your caring for others, thank you very much. You really are a beautiful soul.

I love your drawing, I just love every graphite drawing because they hold their own special appeal to me. Some people love color, I like it but I'm definitely a black and white kid. (Ok, I admit I'm only a kid in my mind so I think I'm allowed to say that!)

Fruit Baskets

by Marty
(U.S.A.)


Hello Everyone:

I redid the Fruit Basket. I worked a little on the shadows, I added the table line and I also added a smaller Fruit Basket turned over on the table.

I just erased some of the bottom part and added the rest. I used a #2 pencil and two different charcoal pencils.

Does this look better then the other one?

Please let me know.


Kindly

Marty!


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Marty, it looks great, it's wonderful to see you take advice in the spirit it was meant. I think this drawing will be complete if you add a main line going out from the bottom of the big basket (on the right side) and add a few extra lines with that one, to portray shadow from the basket falling onto the table.

Aside from that minor detail, your drawing is terrific, the thought and details that you provided really make it a fantastic piece of artwork. Good job Marty!

Halloween

Halloween

Halloween

Hello Everyone;

I sketched this drawing with only a regular pencil. I hope everyone enjoys it.

I only started drawing when I was sixty-four years young. I am now sixty-eight. It was after I had come out of a coma that I was in from a six way bypass. I am on meds and oxygen 24/7. The doctors told my wife to call the family in that I wouldn't live through the night, however the good Lord had other plans. That was in Feb. of 2004. I'm still here and I'm still drawing.

Please enjoy and please leave me a comment-good or bad.

Thanks
Marty!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Marty, you must have such an interesting sketchbook. All of your drawings are so diverse and I have enjoyed each and every one of them. I love the trees and birds in the background of this one, they really set the mood.

My Angel

by Marty
(Fairmount, In. United States)

My Angel

My Angel

Hello Everyone;

Here is a drawing of " My Angel ".

After my heart operation in Feb. of 2005 I was home for about a couple weeks and I got sick and had to be back in the hospital this has went on for about four years. This is the first year that I wasn't in the hospital for anything.

Anyway after my operation and I was in the hospital again I remembered that while I was in a three week coma that I was visited by an Angel.

This is what I remembered the Angel looked like. I put the wordings on the drawing, as that is what I was inspired to do.

Now I didn't start drawing until March of 2005 I was 64 years old and spent my 64th birthday in the hospital.

So this is one of the many drawings that I have done since 2005. I just used a #2 pencil on this drawing. I hope the artist that sees this drawing will study it in detail as it really means a lot to me. Please enjoy.

If you desire to hear of my visions I saw while I was in the three week coma them ASK Kerry for my email and have her tell me it is for the coma visions.

God bless
Marty!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Marty, that's such an intriguing drawing - there is so much to study and it is so very well done. It's more interesting because you drew it from a vision. Good job! ... I hope you are well and happy. Thank you for your contribution to this site.

Espresso Cafe

Espresso Cafe

Espresso Cafe

Hello Everyone;

I saw some ink drawings here on Kerry's great website that she provides for us. Well I didn't have any artist ink so I did the next best thing, I think, I used a ball-point pen with blue ink. My wife got me some at our local Wal-Mart.

Anyway I wanted to see if I could do something in ink.

I call this " Espresso Cafe " " somewhere in the world "

This is outside in the open fresh air. The awning is above just in case it rains. What do you think of the ink method? I also hope you notice the bird flying by, now you know you can come here, relax and eat outside.

I like drew the outlines of everything in ink and then I like used small circles on every outline and here is how it turned out.

The next drawing I use in ink, I will try to use just small dots and we'll see how it turns out. But for now please everyone let me know what you think. This is my first ever using a ball-point pen to draw anything, plus I haven't been drawing that long.

So please everyone leave me some comments, be it good or bad because this is how I will learn more is by you pointing out my mistakes and then telling me what I need to do for improvement.

Thank You All
With Warm Regards
Marty!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Marty, one of the best ways to learn drawing is to use an ink pen - it makes you more careful because you really can't make mistakes!

I think your drawing is tops! I love to see you experimenting with this craft.

Just Doodling

by Marty
(U.S.A.)


Hello Everyone:

Guess what ya all? I just used a mechanical pencil on these drawings and it is the first time I have used it. I normally use a # 2 pencil. So I thought I would try the mechanical pencil to see how it works for me.

So please tell me what ya all think.

No story behind these drawings I just sat down and was looking at some different pictures and I just started drawing and this is what I ended up with I hope you all like it.

Kindly

Marty!


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Marty,
I just love your page of doodling drawings! It's fantastic to wander over the page and marvel at your terrific sketches. Thanks for sharing this, I really appreciate it. I hope you liked the mechanical pencil - it's my all-time favorite.

The Seeker

by Marty
(Fairmount, Indiana-U.S.A)


Hello, here is a drawing I just finished. I wanted to draw something and I didn't know what to draw so I just started with an eye and the rest is what came into being.
After I finished the title just came to mind and thus "The Seeker ".
See if you can find the bird and another face in the drawing.
I only used the mechanical pencil.
Please let me know if you like it or not. I also used a little white in the eyes so the eyes would follow you as you move around the room. Please let me know if it works for you.

Kindly

Marty!

Note from Kerry:
Hi Marty
It is completely wonderful to see you have picked up your favorite pencil and continued to create beautiful works of art. I've enjoyed studying your drawing and I think I have found your hidden symbols...
Is the face at the bottom of the head band? Is the bird formed by the foliage at the top of the right-side tree?

Fruit Basket

by Marty
(United States)


Hello Everyone:

I did this drawing using a # 2 pencil two different types of art charcoal pencil's and a blue ink pen.

I was watching TV and looking through some pictures and I saw this one so I freehanded it, I hope you all like it. I am also working on my shading, I used the tips of my fingers to smudge some of the shading and the darker charcoal pencil holding it sideways to put the shadow effect's in the fruit.

I am just trying to get it better. I am working on the advice from Kerry and Michael. Thank You both because I think my drawings are looking a little better by working on my shading and shadows.

Kindly

Marty!


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Marty, I think you've done a great job of your freehand basket of fruit. Your drawings are going ahead in leaps and bounds.

The only thing missing in your drawing is a table line -- you put that just up a bit from the bottom, to give the perception that the basket is sitting on something and not floating.

You can add a bit of shading on the "table" by visualizing which direction the light is coming from and then applying the shade on the opposite side. Looking at your drawing, I'd say the light is coming from the left so I'd put some shading on the bottom right side of the basket.

Of course, that's only my thoughts and I'm by no means an expert so I won't be offended if you choose to ignore...

Clouds At The Lighthouse

Hello Everyone:

I used the mechanical pencil. I wanted to draw a lighthouse and I thought a day with clouds would look good. Tell me what you all think about it. Should I have used the clouds or just left them out?

They are low lying clouds. Have you ever seen clouds so close to the ground?

I have, have you? I sure hope so!

I hope you all enjoy the drawing. I done it just for you!

Kindly

Cloneon

by Marty
(Fairmount, Indiana--U.S.A.)


Hello Everyone:

Here is a drawing that I done. I call it a Cloneon, because I think this is a government clone that went bad and they turned it loose or maybe this one escaped.

This is a creature that I really did encounter when I was driving my big rig over-the-road. I had just finished getting loaded and signed all my paperwork. It was about 11 PM and I was just outside of Puduach, Ky.

I was a little bit out in the country at a food warehouse. Well I had two 4-way stop signs to go through before I got to the main road to get back to the Interstate.

Well I got through the first stop sign ok and I came to the second stop sign and I looked both ways, nothing was coming so I started to go on, I had my headlights on bright because I was in the country and no other traffic was around so that is the reason for the bright lights. So I started going through the second stop sign when this creature started crossing the road in front of me. I just like stopped. Now this creature was walking on it's two hind legs, it was about 3-4 foot high. At first I thought it was a kangaroo as it had brown tan like hide from the a little above the waist down.

It had no hair. As it got onto the right side of the road it just turned around and looked at me. Now I didn't have any of my interior lights on inside but for some reason I knew it was looking at me and we made eye contact. It was like it knew what I was looking at and thinking. I knew this for some reason. I had thought about getting out of the truck and approach it however I had no weapon, plus I really was like a little bit scared. I got on the CB and ask if anyone could hear me and a lady asked me what I wanted that she had a copy on me. I asked her if anyone had saw any type of creatures around here and she said that about a month before she heard that the government had turned some monkeys loose as an experiment.

This creature had hands and feet but only had three fingers on each hand and three toes on each foot. It looked about what I have drawn here. Believe it because it's true.

Now I thought that was strange so I didn't say any more so I left as the creature had turned and just walked on it's hind feet into the field and disappeared.

Now I haven't told anyone until now. This took place back in October of 1992.

This is a true story. My wife told me at the time not to tell anyone because if it was a clone gone bad they the government might send some guys in black to come looking for me if I started telling everyone.

I believe enough time has passed, do you think so also?

Kindly

Marty!


***Note from Kerry:
Marty, your story telling is second to none, you had me enthralled from start to finish.

I love your drawing too, it impresses me when artists draw from their imagination.

ps. I hope enough time has passed, I don't want you to be dragged away -- I'd miss you!!

Hello Everyone;

Here is a drawing of a lighthouse that I was inspired to draw.

I used just a regular pencil. Most of the drawings I do just come to me in my mind.

I know there are a lot of talented people in the world and I don't claim to be an artist, I just draw what I am inspired to draw or what comes into my mind. I also like to draw for children. I only started drawing in 2005 when I was 64 years young I am now 68 and still going strong.

Feel free to copy and print them out for the kids to color.
