Princess’ Pet Dragon

Filed under: CARTOONS,Fantasy — Tags: , , , , , , , — Colby @ 2:50 pm

Another grandkid request. I deflected the calls for a drawing that was basically a repeat of the Dragon Princess Tea Party (August, 2010) but she insisted we have a “Cinderella” princess, a friendly dragon and a castle. The dragon should be blue and have a blue bow. What? Later she added that the dragon should be a rainbow dragon. Again, what? Here is what I came up with. I didn’t have a scanner available and had to take photos of the drawing but you get the idea.

There’s nothing very special about this quick pastel sketch. It was done just for practice and exercise. I used a photo out of a magazine as the basis.

Pastel chalk on paper, 8″ X 12″

Spreading The Stars

This has been included in one of the top bar of samples for awhile. I thought I’d spotlight it just to show what playing around on a computer can do. It’s not really a painting. It’s not really a drawing. It’s entirely a computer manipulated image.

Pirate Treasurer

Filed under: CARTOONS — Tags: , , , , , — Colby @ 1:22 pm

I went Trick-Or-Treating with the grandkids this weekend. During the quiet times I worked on another drawing for them. Grandson wanted another pirate picture. This time he wanted them finding treasure. I decided to surprise him with the kind of treasure.

We made copies of the line drawing before I added the color pencils so that the kids could add their own color. Grandson worked very diligently on his version. He finished three before I got mine done.
