My new animal art..new for May with my PG Tips
I've had another go at drawing the lambs..this one above was from March 2010...you can see that I've improved my drawing skill...though it still has charm the one above..
My tips in drawing animals is to try and have a conection between them...the animal touching together helps this..like my two rabbits touching noses..or the horse and pony and the three pigs rubbing together..touch shows a bond..whether friendship..parent love..or relationship..
If I drew two animals seperate it leaves a space..a gap..its not so warm..
Another a thing I've learnt creating these animals is the importance of drawing fur...I had originally drawn the two rabbits with one with just an orange shape with no detail..it had short fur in the photo so I drew it like that..But when I showed it to people they said they all liked the rabbit on the left and not the right..they said they felt they could stroke the left one...so I've changed the right one with lots of fur detail..so it shows how drawing fur can change a picture...
its interesting that people want to stroke a picture..another connection thats good in a animal picture..
Soon I'll put these up at my website so you can buy a3 and A4 mounted prints and cards of my new animals..
