Standard

shepherd-and-sheep-blog

I had a lot of fun drawing this picture. Charcoal always gives such depth to a drawing and pops it out.

I always love drawing Shepherds and sheep it brings many Bible verses to my mind.

Thanks for looking!

Luk_12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Luk_15:4  What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
Luk_15:6  And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

Joh_10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Joh_10:14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

This was a commission that I just recently finished. I’m happy how it turned out.  Soon I’ll ship it on its way to its owner!  Something to remember though, is that you can’t ship on the weekends! Bummer!

Medias: I used my Faber Castell markers, .005 Micron pen, colored pencils, and pastel pencils. They all layered very well on Strathmore Bristol paper! (Its very thick and hearty) 😉

Horse- With Charcoal and Coffee

Standard

I thought that I would try this technique that I had seen. I first took some coffee and poured it on my paper. I then spread it around and dried it. After it was dry, I drew my horse with charcoal pencils. The background helped me envision where my horse would be placed. This was very fun and so easy! I think everyone should give it a try! 😉

This Lazuli Bunting is a little friend of ours who loves to eat sunflower seeds from our feeder.  His wife, “The Misses” also comes and pecks around at our feeder. She really likes to take her time and is in no hurry to get back to the nest.  We’ve known these beautiful birds since last year, and were delighted that they came back again this year!

Tiger-Pencil Drawing Stage #3

Standard

I’ve now started on the chest of the tiger. I haven’t worked on this picture for a while, “shame on me!” but after a while the fur gets a little tedious and daunting. So, I decided to put it aside for a while, and do something else. It’s the best thing to do, or your job will start getting  sloppy. I hope to post the stages of my next project soon.
