Illustration Friday: flawed

Illustration Friday.

Theme: Flawed. This is actually my second sketch today...wasn't liking the first one. These were originally going to be plant creatures, one with a missing petal, but they ended up armless-bird/cat/Dr. Suessian creatures of an unknown and slightly confused sort. One has a slight problem...

I've been wanting to do an illustration friday for a while and keep forgetting. I remembered today! yay! Hopefully more to come.

Daily Sketch 17: Hands? ...nope, paws

Original Image.

Analysis: The theme was paws today...I just chose an image that had a bit MORE than paws in it. I like the motion/movement to the sketch and the original image. I had fun with the sketch, and working with interesting shapes (sometimes, i feel like i'm drawing the same face again and again with portraits). I didn't like how the cub's face came out, and i think i messed up with the eyes. I love how the mother's face turned out, even with a crooked nose. We'll also ignore that my vertical line denoting the edge of the picture is anything but vertical.

Daily Sketch 16: Hands on table

Original Image.

Analysis: Hands still suck. I actually don't think I did horrible, except for the fingers (not thumb) of the back hand. They are too small. Because the hands are so complex to draw, shading is minimal. I hope as i get better I learn to shade more in 15 minutes.
