I Drew Half

by Kimberly Valenzuela
(Grand Terrace, Calif.)

My first attempt....

My first attempt....

This one is supposed to be the girl from the show called sex in the city...I can't think of her name...but it was my first one I ever did like this.

I don't think it really looks like her but like I say, it was my first so I kept on doing them til I got better.

**Note from Kerry:
Hi Kimberly, I think it is fantastic. At first glance, you wouldn't even know that one half of this is drawn. Good job!

This is Keegan, my granddaughter when she was about 9 months old. She fell asleep on my lap and I just couldn't resist taking her picture. I love drawing from photographs and this one is always my favorite!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Janis, this drawing is so good, I am sure it will be passed down through generations of your family. Don't forget to attach details about him on to the back and be careful not to damage your work.

In memory of my father

by Tina Armstrong
(Lugoff ,SC, US)


My father passed away in 2006 I did not know my father very well but the little time I did get to spend with him I will always cherish.
He was a very loving father and will miss him deeply. After he passed away my uncle had given me a picture of my father in his military uniform. I sat down one night and drew this portrait of my father from his picture.


artist
Note from Kerry:
Hello Tina
You have created a wonderful drawing and I am certain your father would have been very proud of you!
It looks great, the detail is fantastic - you're a very good artist.

A COAL MINER

A COAL MINER

This is a tribute to my Father.

This is not a sketch of him. This was a photograph in some old magazine, but it made me think of him as he was a coal miner for many years.



***Note from Kerry:
Hi Dennis, my uncle was a coal miner and your sketch also reminded me of him. I like it very much.

Blackbeard The Pirate

by Dennis W Smith
(Birmingham,Alabama )

Edward Teach

Edward Teach

Blackbeard the pirate (real name "Edward Teach") was a pirate who raided off the coast of Colonial America in the early 1700's.

The governor of Virginia grew tired of it and sent a group of seamen after him. Blackbeard was killed and his head chopped off. One legend has it that his head was taken back to England to be buried and another says his head is buried somewhere on the coast of North Carolina.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Dennis, I saw the comedy movie of Blackbeard's Ghost and thoroughly enjoyed it. He wasn't all mean in the movie and quite likeable.

Your drawing is great, I love the colored teeth!

Fair Blows The Wind

Fair Blows The Wind

I did this drawing as a salute to the great western writer Louis L'amour.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Dennis, this is an awesome drawing.

It would be great if you could write more than one line please Dennis, just to keep within submission guidelines.

If you are having trouble thinking about things to write, you can tell us how long you have been drawing, what inspired you to start drawing, how did you learn to draw, what is your favorite medium, do you ever sell your work .... and so on. These are things we would love to know.

The Deceased Man

by Marty
(U.S.A.)

The Man Who Didn't Know That He Was Dead!

The Man Who Didn't Know That He Was Dead!

Hello Everyone:

I did this drawing with a # 2 pencil, a HB # 2 art pencil and ink pen and a charcoal art pencil for the shading. I thought I would shade around the drawing heavy to bring out is white hair better. Does it look ok? I hope you like it.

This is the picture of a man named John " Tipton " Mox. (I forgot to put his last name on the drawing.)

Anyway Old John Mox died and didn't know he was dead. Why he and I were walking down the street on the sidewalk of course and we were talking. I was trying my best to get him to go to the church where they were going to have his services. It starts at 2 PM and it was already noon time. He was also asking me why no one was talking to him and everytime that someone saw him, he would greet them but they would get all white in the face and would run off leaving him there talking to himself.

Now I have the full story if you would want to read it. Just email me here at: ezbayfx2 @yahoo.com. (Just remove the space to bring the email line together. Oh, in your subject line put " John Mox the dead man ")

Just let me know how you like the drawing and the story. And if you would like more.

Kindly

Marty!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Marty, your drawings are coming along nicely, I can see so much improvement. It's great that you put variety into your work and that you like experimenting with different effects. The dark background does look good. Overall, I think you've done a great job!

The Fly Boy

by Betty "Boo"
(Ronan, Montana)


This is a portait of a man among men! The photo used was from March 20, 1942 at an airfield that trained pilots.

On this day my friend Don received his first set of wings. It was also his 20th birthday. Don is still with us and enjoying his long earned retirement.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Betty,
It looks like you have done a fantastic job with the portrait of Don - good work! Is it to be a gift to him? That was a very special day in his life and so good of you to re-create it this way.

Mystery Woman

by Karen Welter
(Joshua, Texas)


Good Evening,

First of I would like to thank Kerry and also Marty for encouraging everyone to keep on drawing! And also Kerry I took your advice and started dating all of my drawings. This one here I saw on the web and it was challenging for me.

But I used a #2 pencil and a home made shader. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed drawing this one.

Thank you Kerry,
Karen


***Note from Kerry:
Karen, your drawing is lovely. I love simplistic drawings just like this one, they have tremendous appeal. All credit rightly goes to you Karen, for your persistence and practice.
