These are stunning! Love the accents of white you gave them-very soft and beautiful birds!!

Gorgeous soft birds. Is that the matboard's influence, or is that the pencil work?

Your birds are really beautiful TJ. Beautiful soft colours, and the silver paper was a great choice for the background.

(I see you chose the same five I did. I remembered from somewhere that I was supposed to have an odd number. :D )

These are beautiful PEncils4me. I look forward to seeing them finished.

TJ, you are a drawing machine! You just keep crankin' out this great pieces one after another. Love the placememt of the highlites.

Waxwings in da hood!

They're like "Yo, whatcha lookin' at? Never seen a bird wearin' pink?!"

Very soft and cuddly looking, though. You always produce great drawings at these events. *sniff* :D

these little birdies got attitude! love the look on the faces (?) of the ones on the far right.

Super rendering - as always!

I was thinking these guys look so fluffed up and cold - you wouldn't dare cross 'em.

Have a great day! :)

These are so cute - just like soft balls of cotton. Your technique on these is perfect. This one's definitely a keeper - frame it when you're done. (You can store it on one of my walls :D )

finished these little buggers as much as i care to...


pulled out an old paintbrush and did some blending here - (stiff dry brush ) darkened my initial colors and put in a background.

This is supposed to be a postcard... but I'm gunna have to mail it soon or I have a feeling it will dissapear!!

thanks again everyone for the comments.... I must say these are cute but have the grumpiest little faces....

BT- LOL this matboard has a suede texture to it - kind of fuzzy so yes it lends alot of the softness... you have to use a bit of different techniques on it though.. but fun to do!

shervie!! oh my gosh girl!! You do make me laugh!! You made my whole family laugh with that one! They now know your officially nuts! LOL new title.."birds in da hood" LOL!

mal - malarkey colors? looks like it to me!! LOL

MKathleen - Oh my it took him about 6 hrs to bribe them to go in that trailer! Final Score: Cowboy=1 Cows=25 LOL!!( I'm such a bad neighbor! LOL)
