Finally able to post this drawing of my nephew, Landon.  He had been playing in a mud puddle, and this is the result: shorts that are falling off.  Below is the drawing with the reference photo:

I realized I made a slight mistake and didn't scan a drawing I did for a Christmas present.  I thought for sure I had taken a photo of the completed image, but realized the only photo I had taken of it completed was with my cell phone.  So I'm sorry to report, that I probably will not be posting that one.

Since my last post, I have completed a couple Christmas presents, which I will post next year.

I have just finished this portrait of Mikael. I didn't take many pics as I was working on her, but here are the two I did take.

Began shading elements of the face...

Close-up of above face detail...
Hair on one side, slightly more work on parts of face,
still not happy with background so played with that

Hope you enjoy!  More progress to come soon.

Prince WIP5

I finished the tiger! I'm going to think for a bit on whether or not to continue on with a background or just leave it black. The tiger took me approximately 18 hours to complete.

Eagle Completed

Bald Eagle
17" x 22"

I have finally finished the eagle! I hope you all enjoy it. Thanks to my friend, Mike, I've decided to name this one "Respite", which means: a delay or cessation for a time, esp. of anything distressing or trying; an interval of relief. ( Unabridged
