I would post it, but the side doesn't allow backlinked images. Bandwidth theft and all. :P A realistic wolf done in Prismas. The background is rather grainy as it was done last year before I discovered blending pencils.

A golden pheasant in watercolor and ink. Another oldie but goodie. Done from a photograph I took.

An example of my illustration/cartooning. Prismas and ink on colored cardstock. The lioness is my personal avatar (Leona) and the duckling is Clyde. My little adopted baby who had a short happy life with me. I still miss him. *sniff*

Comments much appreciated!

Oh, thank you for posting them! Much appreciated. I've been drawing since I was old enough to pick up a pencil, so... about 15 of my 20 years http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif Picked up painting in middle school (tempera and terribly low quality watercolor cakes), and took as much art as I could in HS. And I'm currently in my third year of an art major in college.

I've always been doing art. I draw constantly, mostly the cartooning right now. It's what I do for fun and personal expression. Thank you for calling my girl charming. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif I worked on her character design for roughly a year until I got it to where she is now, not too disney (I hope)and a nice realistic type toony.

Thanks for the welcome!

Leona,

My favourite of the three is the golden pheasant done with watercolours and ink. Keep posting! :EEK:
