This is my first pencil drawing in a while – aside from some gestures I did in February, I don’t think I’ve done a purely pencil drawing since last February.
I technically started this drawing a bit earlier in June, but most of it was done last week while I was visiting family in Galveston, Texas. Donkeys are pretty great and I’m reading a book right now that has a couple of donkey characters in it, so a donkey drawing seemed appropriate at this time.
Well, well, well! Look who’s back! Yes, it is I. My goal to update every week fell by the wayside, but in my defense, I’m now a full-time student in addition to working full-time+, so it was hard to stick to that goal during the spring semester. However, I should have some time this summer and hope to update the blog a bit more over the next few months. In fact, I should have a series of posts coming out over the next 5-6 days to showcase some stuff that I have recently been working on while on vacation.
I’m attempting to make myself feel better about this one by pointing out that it’s a work in progress (WIP). I wanted to do something different from the ink animals I’ve been doing for a while now, so I broke out the Nupastels & decided to try a landscape, another thing I don’t think I ever try.
For week #2 of 2017, I finally finished a drawing I’d started about a month ago – I’m pretty sure it’s a black lab puppy. I’d already had the outline done & just wanted to add some details & shading.
Hello! I believe this has been my longest gap in posting, so it feels great to get another drawing up after all this time. I have been doing some drawing on and off, but mostly as gifts and I just haven’t had a chance to scan and upload the drawings after I’ve done them (and they are now out of my hands anyway).
I’m back after a waaaaaay too long absence! I’ve missed this blog & all of you lovely people out there. My life has been absorbed by music lately, which I think I’ve mentioned before. This is a good thing, but I’m not crazy about the lack of time I’ve spent on drawing this past year.
