Firefly ~ The Alpaca

I just completed this drawing of "Firefly", a blue-eyed alpaca belonging to Lunatic Fringe Alpacas. I thought she was just beautiful, especially those eyes! I seriously thought of adding a little blue somehow to this drawing. I'm calling it complete for now, but may still change my mind and add some blue tint. Still debating. This drawing is close to 5" x 7". I will edit this post later when I remember to see what paper I used (hahaha--I have so many samples to try, I have no idea what I'm using??). I liked this paper. I thought it took darks fairly well. The only problem is that repeat layers did seem to bring up fibers of the paper. Soooo, still not the perfect paper for me, but definitely something I would purchase and use again.

Thank you Donna for showing us your alpacas and letting me take a few good pictures.

The original drawing is for sale. Please contact me for price.

Britt Completed

"Britt", the Chihuahua, is finished. Took me a couple days to get this image on here, but better late than never right. I'm going to have to try a different paper for the next mini I do. I don't think this paper is very good for getting the tone differences that I am capable of getting with each pencil.

Britt ~ Chihuahua Drawing WIP 1

I have been seeing some "mini" drawings lately and thought I'd give it a try :)
This drawing is of a Chihuahua named Britt. It is 4" x 6". Britt belongs to my Aunt Ivy of Lamars Doghouse. The picture I am using to draw from was taken by Ivy. I thought Britt would be a perfect subject to draw for a mini drawing, since she is pretty mini herself :)
