Blue Tongue Lizard ... Update #3.

The size of this CP drawing is 33 x 26 cm on Drafting film.


Almost there. It's been a lot of fun doing this one. It was fun after doing the Lizard..I just worked the rest as it came to me. That's the best part of creating art.

Blue Tongue Lizard. Update #2

The size of this CP drawing is 33 x 26 cm on Drafting film.



Here is an update on the Lizard. I have decided to just make the background up as I go along. Didn't think that grass and bricks was a good way to go.LOL.
Still have a lot to do on this yet. The leaves and twigs take such a long time.

Blue Tongue Lizard





I have at last got around to trying out the drafting film. It's a great support to work on. Wish I had tried it sooner.
The Blue Tongue Lizard was roaming in our garden last week. Isn't he just the cutest. I never realized just how blue their tongue is.
I have a lot more work to do on this. I am replacing the old plant pop with a tree trunk. and have a nice face on photo of the lizard and maybe I will add the face on coming down the tree... I will have to see as it may look overcrowded. I will decide when I have done more on this.

The Boys (Commission)



Here is the finished drawing 23 x 30 cm Prismacolor Pencils on Arches paper.


This one has been a tough challenge for me and a feeling of being out of my depth.
I think it's time to stick with the animals, houses and floral art.
Human portraiture is not the easiest I know.
Makes the likes of Armin Mersmann's works look out of this world.
It all comes down to ........... Practice Practice Practice.
