Red Sea Dugong

Red Sea Dugong

Red Sea Dugong

A diving magazine cover inspired me to draw this rare Dugong from the Red Sea. I liked the detail of the Dugong's skin texture including it's scars and wrinkles. It was a nice little challenge.

This sketch was started and detailed with my Super Promecha 0.5 mechanical pencil. I used Cretacolor Monolith 8B and HB graphite pencils and a blending stick for shading. Total time 1 hour and 7 minutes.


***Note from Kerry:
Welcome back Josef!
Your drawing is spectacular, thank you for sharing it here and for explaining what materials you have used. It is very good ... as usual!

This drawing of a Great White was done freehand with a graphite pencil and a blending stick.

I found a photo of the shark in a library book.

***Note from Kerry:
Josef, I love the perspective of this drawing and the way you have portrayed the fin splitting the water above -- you have done a great job here.

This is a drawing of the Moray eel. This is from my visual diary.

This one is for Kerry and Marty because they wanted to see more of my work.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Anuar, thank you for showing us your drawing, it is really good. I can see that you take special care to get a likeness, and that you would have spent a lot of time doing the shading. This is very well done, good job! I am sure everyone will be happy to see your drawings.

Once again the scaled down version has made it go blurry =/

***Note from Kerry:
Wow Jordan, there's a tremendous amount of work in this piece. Good on you!

Angel Art

Angelfish

Angelfish

I am an angelfish keeper. I have been keeping and breeding angelfish for over a year.

These delicate, creatures - demure in line and graceful in finnage - have always challenged me to create a realistic line drawing in pencil.

It is a simple rendition of a photographed specimen. It is a ghost comtail angelfish, and I think I really captured the essence of this particular fish which was rather delicate and angular. Angel fish vary, and no angelfish is alike.

Fish

I saw a color picture of this fish in a book. I thought it was good so I decided to draw it with pencil. Here is my interpretation of the picture.

***Note from Kerry:
I think you did a good job, Marc. It looks to me like the fish is a Marlin. It's good to see you try different subjects.

fish 1 2 3

Hello Kerry

I am a primary school teacher and as I work with 7 year old children they like to see clipart on their worksheets.

I tend to get clipart from varied places but mostly I like to create it myself because I know what I need.

Most of my clipart drawings remain in pencil or pencil and black marker. I then scan them into my computer ready for use.

This fish started out in the usual way but when I scanned it I saw a lot of things I didn't like so I thought I'd give the once over in photoshop. This is drawing 2.

Then I decided to give it a full makeover and you see the result in picture 3. Even now I still think it needs more work but nevertheless here it is.

Regards
Nick Bird.

P.S. I hope you don't think the photoshop treatment is cheating because it takes about 2 hours to get to the colour version.

**Note from Kerry:
Hi Nick
No, I don't think the use of Photoshop is cheating. I can see how much work you have put into this process.

The fact is, you started with your own drawing and then you showed us what we can do to finish with the standard of your number 3 drawing. It is wonderful.

I also I appreciate the time you took to show us and to tell us how you did it. Thanks, Nick.

By the way, no artist is ever happy with their finished work! Don't beat yourself up over it, number 3 is just fine and the kids will love it!
