I’m not generally a sketcher…I like to sit down with a clean, crisp sheet of paper, reference image close by, and dedicate my time to a slow, concentrated effort at drawing. I’ll have a single drawing on my table for one or two months at a time before I can be content with the completed drawing.
However, recently, I was inspired to relax a bit, grab a pen and a sketch pad, and just have fun for a change. It’s not as if I don’t like drawing detailed work – I live for that! I just had a lot of fun with quick work for a change.
Here is what I ended up with. This first one took me about an hour and a half total. It’s just a plain ball point pen, with some Faber-Castell marker in the background for the touch of color. It is 7×10 inches in size. Sorry about the poor quality of the image. I just laid this on my scanner rather than taking a photo.
This one is also 7×10, ball point pen. I used a reference where these two animals were actually butting heads, but I ended up drawing them on separate pages. This one below took about two hours. It was a nice, quick practice and quite relaxing. Again, sorry about the poor image.
Thanks for looking!
