Re: What are you working on last quarter 2019

Thanks, Chammi. I think I need to lighten the front of his muzzle and could use a lighter brown acrylic. What do you think. I also need to work on the colour of the right antler.

I知 watching the opening games of the Rugby World Cup!

Re: What are you working on last quarter 2019

Penny, I took a look at the ref. picture and think where the problem lies, is that the face is too long. Measure the width of the face and see how many times that fits into the length. Always a good measure. The left eye (on my screen) is also a little too bulbous otherewise. the colours and shapes are good. This is not an easy subject. If you are really battling, it might help if you enlarged the image to fit your support and then traced it. I have just done a measurement of your photo. You will see that the length of the face is about one and a half the width of the top of the head. Your length is twice the width. Hope this helps a little.

Re: What are you working on last quarter 2019

Yes, it does help, thank you. I will start again, and trace it and try to get the proportions right. I値l try to leave the paler parts of the face lighter, too. I may try it in pastels this time.

Good luck Penny. I saw your drawing and it looks spot on to me.

Make his antlers a little shorter. No one will know how long they have grown.

Re: What are you working on last quarter 2019

Looking good Penny. I like the various textures in the fur and antlers.

I haven't had time / motivation for much art recently - too much else going on! But I'm participating in Inktober this year for the first time, which I am hoping will get me back into things.

Re: What are you working on last quarter 2019

Thanks, Kay. I thought it might be a little twee, but you think it痴 all right? I was thinking of darkening its coat.

I know what you mean about motivation! I haven稚 really been in the mood for drawing/painting, lately. I hope you enjoy the Inktober and get back into the mood.

I知 away for a 4-day break in Dawlish at present with Indy and Rita and Wilf. We saw black swans that live on the river in Dawlish - one on a nest!
