Wow, what a wonderful set of images. Thanks for hosting.
 
Beautiful images and a great selection! Thanks for hosting Patricia!
 
These are terrific references!

If only I hadn't made a solemn vow to torture myself and do a successful landscape before the turn of the year- --

Maybe if I moderate the metric "successful" and go with "barely passing grade"...

Really great stuff- I'm intrigued.
 
Christel - These are both fantastic ! Their expressions are wonderful.
I think the first animal is a guinea pig.
Cheers,
Patricia
 
Anne - Beautiful drawings, their expressions are lovely.
The ink work is really well done.
Cheers,
Patricia

Anne- great pen and wash! Well done on that size.
Joe - love your digi drawings!
Thanks for the nice comments on mine.
 
Wow, Christel, great work on these two. The wolf is especially good.
Anne, love your precise pen work. The added colour is perfect.
Joe, love the movement and spontaneity in your digital sketches.

I did mine very quickly just so I could participate with something. It looks like it has it's tongue hanging but it is it's chin. It makes it look kind of comical. graphite water soluble pencil and added charcoal lines done in my Canson sketchbook, 7X9".

Joe - Very nice drawings - You always capture the action very well.

Sanlynn - I love your koala - I have to laugh about his chin - it does look
like he's sticking out his tongue at us - definitely gives him a lovable, cheeky look ! :)

Cheers,
Patricia
