    I drew a picture of Leonardo Dicaprio.

    Re: A Drawing In Progress

    Those are great sketches. Instantly recognizable. One of the things I value highly in a sketch is economy of strokes. With so few strokes, you have captured their likenesses.

    I painted that a long time ago. It was from a photograph in a little desk calendar I had.

    Based on the gull-wings, I would say gulls.

    I started drawing again recently after not drawing for ten years or more. This was my first drawing. People thought it was Martin Lawrence, but it's not.

    A few of mine... Haven't really done a lot recently:


    In terms of things drawn from life or from a picture:

    This is Vivi from Final Fantasy IX
    Vivi_from_FFIX-1.jpg

    This is a teddy bear that was sitting on a shelf in my parents house:
    Teddy_bear-1.jpg

    Gohan from Dragon Ball Z
    Gohan-1.jpg

    And a dreamcatcher that I drew off of a picture on the computer
    Dreamcatcher.jpg


    And these are what I normally draw.. I usually start with drawing a line on a piece of paper and just "winging it" from there, without an actual picture set in my head for what I want to draw.

    Just a random creature I came up with.. Eventually I'll add it to something else

    Another random creature
    Thing_3.jpg

    Another one
    strange2.jpg

    Another one lol
    thingy2.jpg

    Maybe something different??... Nope, it's definitely another one!
    smirk2.jpg

    Yup yup.. you guessed it, another one
    Thing_2.jpg

    Disproportioned face
    Face.jpg

    Here's a different one... A surreal scene that I drew
    SurrealScene2.jpg



    Here's a few tattoo's that I've drawn, either for me, for someone else, or just for fun:


    A tattoo that I drew for someone

    A tattoo I drew for myself that I plan on getting at some point

    A tattoo that I drew that I don't plan on getting haha

    Based on what there is so far, I vote for the cat.

    Here's one of mine of a friend:

    I haven't done too many lately, and this was maybe five or so years ago, taken with a low end camera

    Thanks, that's a really nice way of looking at it.. What I was doing for a while was drawing a celebrity, sending it to my friend's email to see if he can guess who it is. He rarely got it right. His wife, though, was right on the ball, guessing it correctly every time.
    That cat is very good.

    Thanks. I used to really enjoy painting cats - except black ones. Those are very, very hard to paint in watercolor.

    The look on that cat's face is precious!

    Curious: did she pose outside nekked?

    we were swimming

    I like the interplay of angles and fields to define areas


    I wish I had taken more photos or even some photos of some that are gone now.--oh, well, that's a reason to do more. I'll dig out some more, and if I can transfer some 35mm slides
