So this little squirrel popped into someone's photo and is now an internet phenomenon (ok maybe not but its worth a laugh :p) The cow decided to get in on the action (I really wish I had of taken that picture because its such a wonderful place to visit, but I got it off of a stocksite with the intention of painting it)(make your own here)
And an hours worth of work on the horse which doesn't show much. Still putting in the muscles and the basic highlights and shadows. Going to look a little odd until I start to really darken the shadows and start to flesh out the shape. I usually work left to right so it feels odd working right to left on this.
And I think I have figured out a theme for college. Ingrid's suggestion of Tarot really started my mind running for themes. I thought I could do an occult theme, have lots of things I could use for that to draw but then I kept thinking (yes my head hurt ;p).
Thought of using "legends" as a theme. I have lots of stuff to draw for that, its something I am really interested in and the possibilities are endless. From dragons and unicorns, to ancient Egyptian myths to even urban legends. So hopefully that works, if not I need to think of another one. And even if I don't use the portfolio to try to get into Uni I should end up with a few pieces of nice work I could sell or make prints from.
And just a reminder that there is less then a week left for the deadline for the drawing group :D
