    I'm willing and eager to draw any pictures of your pet to help me get a lot more practice in art. [​IMG] If you're interested in this, just post a picture of your pet and I'll return it as a drawing. [​IMG] I'm not really the best artist out there, but I suppose that's the point of this thread. [​IMG] I'll be drawing in graphite with a tortillion and kneaded eraser for now. :3 Please don't be offended if I don't get to your right away - I'm fairly busy, but I should hopefully be able to really catch up on weekends! [​IMG] So, anyway, to the examples!

    [​IMG] < Most recent - finished today! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Wow, that turned out really grainy. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Pretty old school. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] And that's why I'm sticking to graphite. [​IMG]


    I realize that they're all horses... And not very good at that. [​IMG] I'm looking to get practice with any type of animal you can think of! :3 Thank you so much for any help.

    They are very good, especially if you are a beginner. I sculpt, (look at the post on birding https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=613632 ) and usually I sketch the animals and poses first. there is an excellent book that I can recommend, Animal Anatomy for Artists: The Elements of From By Eliot Goldfinger. It is a fantastic book for learning how to draw animals.

    Hey EH3, could you draw my chicken? [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sorry about the quality, she just wouldn't hold still! [​IMG] Also, if you need me to zoom in on the chicken, just tell me and I will. [​IMG]

    I have many I can post, lol I will look thru what I have uploaded and then you can pick which ones you want to draw [​IMG] You don't have to draw any or all of them if you don't want to. I would be happy to just have one of my pics done.

    You have many choices, LOL. 5 of them I think [​IMG]

    THANK YOU!!!!!!
    I was trying to edit and some of my pics are now gone [​IMG] Having such a hard time with the new set up [​IMG]I hope I didn't mess you up [​IMG]
