Re: A Fist Full of Pencil Shavings

Yay. If you use the phrase "skellies", they don't seem half as morbid. I remember the full sized resin skellie in my old biology classroom. He was called Claud, but I always thought of him as more of a Rufus myself.

Love it!

I have to say that I have really enjoyed following this thead.

Munin Raven, I love your style. Your sketches are incredible and very imaginative. The backgrounds and composition are always so interesting to me. You seem to incorporate so many elements! I am always looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Re: A Fist Full of Pencil Shavings

mlovette: Much appreciated. I do like combining different elements together. Sometimes it's a little hit and miss, but I always have fun.

Joan: Cheers. Maybe the skellies will win over a few hearts over time, haha.

I tried taking a less trodden path with this and used a little ink. It didn't work out in the end, but I came away with a few different ideas so I'm happy.

Re: A Fist Full of Pencil Shavings

Some quick sketches done on todays walk. The horses didn't seem to care too much about me, and their grass nibbling kept them mostly in the same stances...

Re: A Fist Full of Pencil Shavings

Hooray for cooperative subjects!

I find that most dogs do not like being studied for a sketch... even if they are sleeping they seem to know they are being watched.

Re: A Fist Full of Pencil Shavings

Funny how horses do stay put pretty much. They are too busy eating...cows too. I think dogs and cats are too easily distracted. lol

Re: A Fist Full of Pencil Shavings

Haha... loving the horsey thoughts as a subject matter. Strange that I haven't been that close to horses for a protracted amount of time before. It was so nice, and they seemed fine with me. I sooooo wanted to pat and stroke one, but didn't feel like intruding on them any more.

And of course we have the cat and dog comparative. Just so you know, I potentially could sketch my two cats, but one always seems half awake and will quickly scoot if you look at him for too long. Then you have his sister, who just goes into these ultra deep, loud snoring, dream-twitching, mega snoozes that I could easily sketch... but for the simple fact she looks so very unladylike. haha!



I would love to be able to sleep like that!


Animals aside, I dug out the old manikin that I bought on a whim because I always thought they look cool on a booshelf. I've never used the thing for any artistic endevaor until today, and now I'm becoming rather fond of it.

Re: A Fist Full of Pencil Shavings

gorgeous cat! and cool sketches


I've had one of those mannekins for years - not sure where it lurks just now - and drawing it for a study is all I ever used it for too

The sketches of the manikin are great...so well shaded.

Re: A Fist Full of Pencil Shavings

Long time no scribbling. One of the downsides to having too many interests, I guess. Anyway, here's a couple of sketches collecting items for the Scavenger Hunt forum activity...





And some scratchy sketching done while watching/pausing a Japanese TV comedy drama called Switch Girl. The faces the actress pulls are delightfully exaggerated.



More soon... hopefully.
