April Quick Draw Challenge!

Here's the quick draw challenge for April - a hodgepodge of some hopefully fun sketches. Do what you will with them or post your own SW & W themed doodlings and drawings!

The young Quincy Magoo lookin' fellow is my son exploring a Montana ghost town last summer.

Wonderful images here, Larry. Thanks for hosting this month's "Quick Draw" for us. I love the horses, and the photo of your son is just great!

Re: April Quick Draw Challenge!

You're right on top of things, as usual, Sandra. These are great. I love how you put so many things into that first sketch. There's a lot to look at. I also love the horse, and your big horn sheep is looking very stately. Great work!

Re: April Quick Draw Challenge!

I love the combination of images in your first drawing Susan, it's a great illustration, with lively humor. I also like the next two with the goat and the horse. I am looking forward to doing something with these images soon. I like this site so much mainly because the people here are so friendly. I am trying to find the campfire you all sit around and jaw, but so far I am lost. Aleada

Re: April Quick Draw Challenge!

I love your drawing of the mule deer doe Cindy! The eyes and nose are both quite good, as well as the shadowing in just the right places. Well done!

Thanks for participating - please draw and share more if you have a chance.

Re: April Quick Draw Challenge!

Thanks Larry. I've had such a good time since I found this website. I try to participate in a few of the forums as I find time. The weekly/monthly challenges keep me pretty busy. I have a very hard time keeping my drawings/paintings sketchy and loose...but I'm working on it

Cindy, what a great drawing of the deer! Stippling is a lot of fun, isn't it? You did such a nice job on this. Great proportions. Well done!

Re: April Quick Draw Challenge!

Cindy, you did such a nice job with the horse! You really captured the stance and the emotion the horse has. Beautiful work!
