Sketchbook - Cartoon Lion

Well, here's a before & after shot I drew of a Lion. Animals can be fun to draw. I figured I'd color it in Photoshop. I think it looks better now.

Sketchbook - Figure Studies

I don't think learning the names of everything is necessary, but.. it may come in handy someday so it's good to learn.

It's always nice to go back and do figure studies. It reminds you of what's underneath the skin.. when you're in the zone of simplifying your drawings all the time. I just think it's great to do both.

Cute Doggy

I'll be posting my sketchbook drawings more often. I was inspired in drawing a dog because I was watching the "Dog Wisperer" on television. Good show if you wanna learn how to train your dog. I don't have one just yet. But I will eventually.

I drew it in my sketchbook then scanned it in and colored in in Photoshop. I used the generic Brush tool for the color & shadows, then I used the gradient tool for the lighting.

Ella McCoy

Here's the birthday drawing of little girl, "Ella" from the family I spoke about below. She's only 3 yrs. old now. I basically took the same drawing of her and just photoshoped a new background so maybe she could use it for her bedroom or something. Little girls Love pink!!

The McCoy Family

This is Jeff McCoy, His wife Sandy & daughter Ella. This guy was a former christian & police officer who was killed 2 weeks ago. Right before he passed away.. he had seen some of my recent work & asked me if I could draw up his daughter for her birthday. I told him yes.. and somewhere inbetween all of that.. he passed away before I could get the drawing over to him.

I was thankfully able to find a close friend of his so he could get this drawing over to his family. It's really sad. His last request for a gift to his daughter was my drawing! I was honored to draw him & his family eihther way.

His life showed his dedicated passion for God & out of anything else in his life he wasn't afraid of showing what he believed. He went out of his way to get the truth of the gospel out to people... and in reality THAT'S MORE courageous than being a police officer. He amazingly was able to do both.. be a policeman & a witness for Christ. :O)

As for the drawing... The photos I had available of him weren't that great. They were a little blurry. I still don't think the likeness is all that great... but oh well, it's all I could do. I like the drawing of the little girl & the wife the best.
