I  just started posting stuff on Craftster. Thank goodness for an *art* forum.  I thought I would show off some of the drawings and sketches that I have done.

Just to let you know, I can't draw many things from the top of my head. I look at pictures and basically copy them, and usually draw them much bigger than the original picture.  Roll Eyes

copied from a picture in a magazine using charcoal - *charcoal = messy*  Tongue

a sketch of a friend from a photo done with pencil

frog done in colored pencil, copied from a photo found on the internet

more frogs in colored pencil! I love froggies ...

didn't think I would draw more frogs, did you? Done in pencil.

this one is not complete, but its a sketch on my niece on my dad's lap. In pencil.

a sketch of my grandmother taken from an old photo done in charcoal pencil.

sketch of a pin-up girl, but didn't quite copy it exactly. I was fed up trying to draw in her face, so instead I threw her hair over it! Artistic License rules!

I have many more sketches/drawings and even paintings that I have done. But I thought the million pictures I posted in this thread will be enough for now Wink   Cheesy

I love these geogrrl99! the frogs are excellent and your coloured pencil work is excellent but you have really got a nice style. The anatomy on the pin up is really good and i like the mood in the first one. Copying from photographs is a really good way to statrt drawing i think, as you get to know how shadows describe features and how bodies fit together on weird poses. often if you draw from your head you get tied up the technical stuff and get frustrated.

I say keep going and keep trying new stuff. i'd love to see more of your art!

Love your work....It's good. I know what you mean with the copying thing...I can think up millions of things, but they always look better in my head....But when I copy from something....better results....Keep drawing!

Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments!  Grin

I like the colors of the first frog. Did you use "normal" colored pencils?

I love the first one, and the pin up girl! Your style is realistic, but it's somehow more intresting then the actual object. err.. bad explanation, but i love all of them!

Wow you're great at drawing!  Smiley I think they are all good, but I love the froggie ones the best.


[[I post a bunch more on there]]

I use PRISMACOLOR colored pencils! They are the best! They are soft enough to blend with other colors and the colors are really vibrant! I have a whole mess of different brands (of colored pencils) but I find Prismacolor brand to be my favorite.
