Horny Toad

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

As a kid growing up in central Texas we called them horny toads. Other folks call them horned toads, horned frogs or horned lizards or maybe something else. Despite their rough appearance they were very docile and fun to play with. They’re hard to find nowadays. I am told it’s because their main source of food, the red ant, has been driven out by civilization.

I drew this while practicing on my iPad.

Butterfly

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

I was stuck in the house and needed to do something for my sanity so I came up with a quick drawing using watercolor pencils. The idea was to draw most of the girl in grayscale and meld into color toward the butterfly. I was drawing the girl when I suddenly realized I had picked up the “Olive Green” pencil instead of the “Gunmetal Gray.” It ruined the whole concept of going from no color to color. Oh well, it is what it is. Live and learn, right?

An old charcoal exercise pulled out of the file from days long ago.

Two Deer By Tree

I just noticed this on my wall and realized I’d never posted it. So here it is. It was done for exercise only, just playing around. I was inspired by a photograph I saw somewhere and converted it to charcoal.

Dueling Rams

I don’t know what these rams are arguing about but it might be because Mary had a little lamb.
