Thought I should update the very bad photo of this drawing with a scanned image.

Copied from a rather washed out watercolour so I added a lot more detail.

No idea how long it took as I just did the odd half hour here and there spread over a couple of months.

A3 Winsor & Newton smooth Bristol board
Range of Derwent soft graphic pencils
Blending stumps and tissue.

:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz: Any one found using my work without my permission will be forced to listen to the Barney song on a continuous loop for a full week. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Great drawing! I just read your permission signature and got a big laugh out of that! When my kids were small, I had to sit and watch it with them. Man I hated that song! Cheers!

Thank you Jim and I hope you heed my warning as I will be merciless in the execution of this threat. I can only offer my condolences for the pain you must have suffered before your kids grew out of the Barney faze and hope you are fully recovered.:iconsecrethandshakeplz2:

Thank you very much for your kind comment.:icongwompplz:

Rather than being jealous why not have a go yourself, I spent my life thinking I couldn't draw and only gave it a go last year, you'd be surprised what you can do if you put your mind to it.:nod:

You're welcome!

I actually have tried to draw before. I've taken art classes and everything. I did pencil stuff and painted as well. It didn't go over very well. I tried, but I just wasn't that good at it. Sometimes I still draw from time to time, but it's never anything truly worth looking at. I guess I'm very self-deprecative, though. Maybe I'll work on it some more and see what happens.

Rockinfroggi Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2011
I think art classes can try covering too much in a short time. Most of the artist I admire on here are all self taught. You should really try to use some of the advice available on here. Start of with the basics like using the grid method to get proportions right and when you have mastered that learn the different techniques for shading and blending.

Obviously this advice is only any good if you have a real wish to learn and improve. And never be afraid to ask some of the artist on here for advice, most are more than happy to help or point you in the right direction with what tutorial to look at.

I'm sure once you start seeing an improvement in your work you'll be hooked like I was and I try now to improve just a little with each new drawing.

I wish you luck in whatever you decide.:iconcreepglompplz:

Yeah that is true. I might try to just learn on my own now for a while. I have a little bit but not much. I'll see what I can learn, though. I really do appreciate the advice. I'll look into it. Thanks.

This is my favourite piece from your gallery [with Please Just go of course ;)], the petals are so subtle and nicely shaded. I could hang sth like this on my walls :aww: Really great!

I must admit I'm quite surprised at how popular this has been. I think this one did mark the change in understanding what I was doing more but still a long way from the level of skill I'd like to one day reach.

Thank you very much for taking the time to comment on this and all the others. :iconcreepglompplz:

I like the way you play with contrast, so bright and very dark
shades, it gives the image much more personality.
