Hill of Music

Hill of Music

Hill of Music

This is my dedication to music, my gratitude for music.
Some say that music is the greatest gift of all, I couldn't agree more about that.

I still remember how music helped me mend my broken heart, how music lifted my feeling to a hill which I've never seen before..

***Note from Kerry:
This is beautiful, Atita. Well done.

Inspired Drawing

by Dinesh
(India)

Joseph and the Divine Child

Joseph and the Divine Child

St Joseph is one of only three saints, among hundreds of recognized Christian Saints in the past two thousand years, who is depicted holding the divine child... ( the other two being Anthony of Padua and Mother Mary )

What a wonderful privilege for an unknown illiterate humble carpenter from a small village... to be able to see... feel... and experience the divine mystery in such an intimate familiar wonderful way... in the form of a human child...

A little child is something that spontaneously attracts everything to itself simply by its wholeness, wholesomeness, purity, innocence and playful nature and unconditional love n joy...... and its only purpose in life seems to be to just play and love and delight and be creative and live in the moment...

The image of God as a child is so wonderfully symbolic too, in that... one only needs to see the divine child playing in all forms... ever calling, ever beckoning us to love all.... and to somehow see and feel and somehow intuit and recognize the divine presence in all...
so that our joy may be full and complete...

Just as that quiet simple gentle carpenter-artist did 2000 years ago...

The above drawing was inspired by a painting "Joseph The Guardian" by Kendra Burton.

**Note from Kerry:
Lovely story, Dinesh, and a good drawing.

Land rover caricature

Land rover caricature

This is personalized land rover caricature done for a friend of mine's aunt and uncle.

Well i was experimenting one day and came up with this sort of cartoon/caricature style of drawings and have made a website with a whole bunch on it and offer personalized caricatures as well.

Got myself a book on caricatures called How to draw caricatures by Alex Hughes and is brilliant. I use pencil at first to get my lines then after getting the right size i use copic markers and fineliner with white pen and tipex to finish off on special bleed proof paper! The website is www.karink.net

***Note from Kerry:
You do great work, Wynn, I wish you all the best.

World Of Bread

by Rachel Ma
(Singapore)

World Of Bread

World Of Bread

I drew this in my sketchbook when this idea of drawing bread popped into my mind.

I thought that these breads are cute as I believe almost everyone will like to eat bread, especially donuts for girls.

So hopefully this cartoon drawing made the bread looks even more attractive.

Anyway, i simply used one of my favourite mediums, which is ink pen, to draw this and it turns out pretty well.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Rachel, it's great to see your creative mind at work. You are right, they are cute!

Monster hearts

Monster Hearts

Monster Hearts

These characters were created one day when i was doodling, i have a whole collection of them now, doing different things in different settings, i have even had some put on white t-shirts. They look very effective as they are drawn in black ink, on white,
For monster hearts i just used black ink, as i felt this worked well.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Katt, these are cool! Well done!

Superhero-Lynx Attack

Superhero-Lynx Attack Drawing

Superhero-Lynx Attack Drawing

I had a lot of fun creating this picture. I did this cartoon for a superhero drawing challenge on drawspace.com. The superhero is the Lynx. Obviously, this superhero has powers similar to a real lynx.

I got the idea for this sketch from a Korean graphic novel that I picked up cheap at a used good store the other day. The Lynx's head started as an upside-down triangle as did the body. The arms and legs are long, slender ovals. The bad guy's head is, obviously, a huge circle. I drew a drew a huge diamond to represent his right hand.
Once the outline was done, I paid attention to the Lynx's mask, costume and gloves as well as the bad guy's sports coat and tie.
Finally I added in the key elements showing feeling and motion. These included the eyes, mouths and tongues as well as the motion and impact lines. I coloured it with coloured pencils.

**Note from Kerry:

It's very good, Jim.

MX-11 Astro Fighter

by Perry
(Crane, Texas,)

Astro Fighter

Astro Fighter

I wanted to draw a drawing of one of my lego sets, and I did! It was my one of my lego marsmission, the MX-11 Astro Fighter.

I used a ruler to help me, but not that much. Just to make it even. I looked at the real lego set and drew it.

The background I could draw without looking at any thing. I signed my name on it as proof I drew it. The title of the drawing I used a ruler, and I had to look at something except the red box that said lego in it.

I should have colored it, not that I'm bad at coloring or anything, I just don't like to color that much. Although I'm good at shading, I didn't in this drawing.

***Note from Admin:
Hi Perry
Keep up the good work!
Thanks for a great description of how you went about the drawing.

Masquerade Party

by Patty
(Iowa)

Masquerade Party

Masquerade Party

I did this drawing for a friend of mine a couple of years ago. She wanted something different and cheerful. She loves masks and sunshines with faces.

You can't really tell on this small picture but the little round things going all the way around the outside of this drawing; they are a string of beads that I drew in to make a border.

When I finished this on an 8x10 paper I went out and got a poster board paper and redrew it on that for my friend in pencil. After finishing with the pencil I went over it with a fine tip marker so it could be seen better.

It was very interesting coloring that entire piece of poster board with colored pencils. Any way she loved it, but has no room to put it up anywhere at the moment.

***Note from Kerry:
Patty, I like this, there's lots to see and investigate.

Robot

by Adam Jones
(Norwich UK)

Robot

Robot

I saw a toy robot in a model shop and thought it looked very cool so I took a pic with my phone. Later on, I drew it and this is the end result. It took me about 2hrs to finish.

I used two programs to draw it and a pen tablet on my pc (photoshop, Manga Studio Debut 3.0)

In manga studio 3.0, it allows you to have multiple layers and lots of different pen types so you can sketch a drawing on one layer then add a second layer.

Then, draw a more defined line on top of the sketch and save the more defined drawing as a jpeg. Then you can load the jpeg into photoshop where you can colour the drawings in and add shadows and other effects.

**Note from Kerry:
Hi Adam
This is so good! You must be very satisfied with your efforts. Thanks for your detailed explanation on how you did this, too. I'm sure someone will be trying out this experiment! Interesting.
