Here is Mom, Eve, Trinity and myself’s interpretation of “A Bowl of Macaroni and Cheese”
The second drawing in a collage series I’ve started. Feathered Foliage was the first, the second is a bundle of nautical clutter featuring lobsters and fish.
Talk about procrastinating on a post @_@ ! Here are four weeks worth of drawings from the weekly family drawing challenge I started. They’re all prompts from the 300 Drawing Prompts Book. Next week will be Mac and Cheese, so if this cracks your crabs, come back to see the cheese.
Week 1: Armadillos
Week 2: The Kraken
Week 3: Banjo
Week 4: Woolly Mammoth
I’ve been playing around with drawing some drippy, melty animal food combos, and this is what I’ve come up with so far. An Ocelatte, and a S’more Tiger because it sounded c00l in my head. I sketched these out in pen and used Corel Painter to color.
It’s fun to draw and think of how heavy each object you sketch is and create a false sense of gravity and weight. It’s very soothing and meditative! Hooray for large melting cats! >_>
I started this drawing about 2 months ago…!! Pulled it out last night and finished that last boring patch of fur that was left to draw. 😛
This is a portrait of our cat Squid. She’s named Squid because I suggested it as a joke name, and Sam wouldn’t stop calling her that.
It magically clicked one day, and here we are stuck with good ol’ Squid cat.
I drew the portrait on Strathmore Artagain paper with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. Polychromos are great for vibrancy — the Prismacolors hit the highlights and dark areas well.
You can see more pet portraits here 🙂
Here is a red panda I drew, the reference photo was taken by my boyfriend Sam. It’s 8×10 inches, drawn on Strathmore Artagain paper. The black version of the paper is super fun, I had no idea I would enjoy it as much as I do. I thought the colors would come out weak on it. But no, it’s all good.
If this drawing really floats your boat, you can buy it here.
Also, we attended a swanky Christmas party at The Waters in Oshkosh, it was lovely. The food was too good, and we partied like it was 1999.
