Weekly Drawing Thread August 28-September 4

Welcome to the Weekly Drawing Thread for August 28 -September 4.

Each week a new thread with a reference and suggestions for that reference will be posted for anyone to draw and post their results throughout the week. You may follow the weekly suggestion which will be a loose guideline to try or draw and experiment on your own and post your results. Some people look on it as a challenge, but that's the great thing about these 'challenges' - they aren't against any other artists...the challenges is to you....to do YOUR best against yourself! So it doesn't matter what other people do, as long as you do your best!! Better still - do it consistently, so that no matter what is thrown at you, you attempt it...that's the challenge!

When posting you should consider adding information such as medium, support, dimensions, whether complete or not, so it will be easier for others to comment on your work.

The goal of this thread is open-ended. This means you decide what it is you want out of a weekly challenge. Do you want to just sketch or do you want to become more proficient at drawing, or do you wish to break into other drawing mediums or just play around? It is entirely up to you as the artist. You know your own strengths and weaknesses and you can find them in each reference we are faced with. Practice is where it's at, just think of this thread as your personal motivator.

Any level of drawing is encouraged to join in!

Different mediums are fine as long as we post preliminary drawings, sketches, and "under-drawing" of the painting, so the discussion on the thread stays relevant...and be sure to post the final painting for comparison of your drawing. Drawing can be crucial to the final product of a painting and we would like to see how!

We accept submissions for reference photos! Feel free to PM reference photos or links to one of the moderators or guides of images out of the image library that you would like to see here or upload your own photos...but be sure to keep in mind photo quality and size and choice of reference. We put all submissions in order of their arrival in our PM In-boxes. If you have anymore questions regarding this, feel free to PM one of us. Thanks!

You can alter these images in any way if you wish. I just want to see what you can do with either one or all of these. If you want to paint, please show the preparatory drawing along with the painting image.


This week... let`s go to Emerald City!!!

Join me at the yellow brick road!!!


Along with us ther will be:

Dorothy:



The cowardly lion:




The tin man




More...

I'll consider it. One of my least favourite movies of all time though.

How I spent my day
Likeness is very difficult for me, Does it look like her at all? I lose the ability to tell after a while, i think the eyes may be too far apart. Happy to hear all C&C. I did really enjoy this---I'm a big Judy Garland fan.

Wow, Luicre... this is fantastic! What a feast! Thank you!

A very expressive lion, nguyen01!
Barbara, you caught a fair likeness, and the expression is spot on

Okay, so here's mine - I couldn't stop myself and did these in a rush this evening 10" x 11, Conte stump and conte pierre noire (Derwent wash for background).

Hi, first time to post a drawing here... I did this with a couple of pens, and a brush-pen for the hair because I got tired of all the cross hatching
