Lovely owl. That soft charcoal with the pencil gives great texture.

Your technique of brushing the charcoal is great for the owl's feathers and at the same time it gives him a solid feel. If that doesn't make any sense, I will just blame it on exhaustion from shoveling snow:mad: . He seems to be saying, "Who are you looking at?" Pun intended. It's the snow again.

Keep at it Chuck. You are doing a great job.

I have to say I do love this medium for animals, it provides such a lovely softness but still appears 'detailed' from the suggestion of more than is there. Very nice effect for fur, feathers etc!

Dougwas
11-20-2010, 11:43 AM
So are you saying you need some color in your life, Chuck? I've gone the opposite way, from pastels to graphite. This is another wonderful drawing. I agree that this technique is great for animal drawings.

Doug

RainySea

Another great animal drawing. . . I like him almost as much as the wolf, but I think that wolf is still my fav. :)

Another lovely piece. I know what you mean about color, after working in graphite for a while, I feel that way also. I did a week or so of only graphite last month but couldn't keep it up :)

I look foward to seeing your color work, Chuck!

Both the owl and bobcat are excellent, Chuck! I've been fortunate to see bobcats in the wild several times while doing some bird survey work inside a closed municipal watershed area near my house.

Dougwas: I haven't had much experience in the other mediums, it'll be a lil break from black and white... I do have another 80 page sketchbook ready for more graphite and charcoal... :)

seejay: I'm on page 51 and I've probably ripped out 5 pages of this 80 page sketchbook... I guessing 24 left.

JTMB: Your lucky to see bobcats... we have them around where I live, I know a few people who have seem them, but I've not seen one yet.. :(

I just learned monkeys are fun to draw:)

Holy moley... why don't you like it?!? I'd be delighted with it! The speed and somewhat loose style works for giving a lot of energy and momentum. I wouldn't want to be whomever he is giving the hard eye to in that temper on a bet!!! The little chimp is adorable - very well done on the eyes and 'brow' area, with plenty mischief promised.

Chuck, this is great - I'd just darken the inside of his mouth a little and call it done! You don't always need a lot of fine detail to create a nice piece of art - and working from the small thumbnails without details forces you to loosen up and be more imaginative sometimes. I like the way your sketchbook is progressing ;)

Rainy it was from a picture, in this journal it's been ref images. though mostly rough like. I did watch the 1st movie last night....:)

Guess I should add apes too...
Lately I haven't much time to think of what to draw, it's that time of year where everything is busy...... My mind has been on other things while drawing, it really makes it tough to focus.

Nice job on the landscape! Another image from one of the events that I would like to do. It is definitely very typical Prince Edward Island. We went to the island on a motorcycle trip across Canada years ago - got on the island via the amazing Confederation Bridge and off on a ferry. One of the guys on our trip (now retired) was a ferry boat captain for our state ferry system, so we got to be in the wheelhouse during the ferry crossing.

Great portrait, Chuck!

We are lucky in Seattle to be one of only three cities in the US to host the Picasso exhibit while the museum in France is being renovated. My wife and I are members of the Seattle Art Museum, and so got to go to opening night at the exhibit. It was spectacular - covering the whole gamut of his work, including sketches and pre-Cubism pieces (plus sculptures). He was quite the character, with quite the ego. And a big, powerful guy - there were a couple pictures of him in his studio in the exhibit.

Love the eyes, Chuck! (And the other sketches as well, including the happy squirrel.) I have to say that the eyes triggered a Gary Larson 'Far Side' comic in my mind immediately. The first panel showed a lab tech looking through a microscope at a slide of sperm. The second panel was from the sperms' point of view, looking up the microscope optics at the humongous eye looking down at them. The sperm were all panicked, shouting, "The EYE! The EYE!!"

Congrats on the finish. "The End" of the cow made me smile. So how do you like having a regular sketchbook now?

Thanks for the comments, it does feel good to finish my 1st sketchbook. I think I'm going to stash it away for a couple of years or maybe hang it on the wall lol.

My next sketchbook is going to be a cream 120 page canson 90lb 9x12... I have so many cheap color pencils waiting to be used, may try them out in it.

I wonder if it is because of the phrase "Heinz 57" that is used to describe a persons heritage. And you use both on stake... just a thought. love the drawings!:clap:

Bluefly that does make sense.... I must be a Heinz 57, I'm part Irish German Indian..... :D though I would never refer people as steak sauce lol... just my mixed breed of dogs:)

Love the eyes and great drawings and cartoons.

Terrific self protrait and great how it stands out with the shading.. The model never stays still when I use that one.
