Show off your drawings!!!

Though there's no members at the moment I figured I'd go ahead and start a topic. In this one, just post pics or scans of some of your drawings. Here's three of mine:

Cool, you like pastels? (I've never tried them)
yeah these particular pastels are great because they are not oily like oil pastels. these feel like charcoal.

Drawing has never been one of my stronger skills, but I have been practicing. Here is a dragon head and a lizard, done in chalk pastel.


You've got great skills in chalk pastel!

You should keep drawing and soon you'll be a pro!

Great job!

Thanks! :-)

I started sketching these mid-year of 2010 and the latest were done just last month. Medium I used were varying. I sometimes use 6B, but most of the time 8B for shading and then HB for outlining. I draw on Canson or sketchbook if I see something interesting on the streets. I usually draw birds, but recently I'm drawn to sketching cats.

Anyway, I hope you'll like them! :D

That is amazing you you did these!

Very impressive! (Well, I'm only ten, but I take classes!)

I hope I can be as great of an artist as you someday!


Real nice

Wonderful :)

Am a new comer....here is my favorite krishna... friends sorry for the quality...

beshur6 years ago
This kind of pictures I now learn to draw. Sorry for the quality  ;)

This technique is called 'Petrikivskiy rozpis' and comes from Dniepropetrovks region of Ukraine.

Beautiful :)

LoneWolf (author)  beshur6 years ago
Wow, that's good!!!!!!!
beshur LoneWolf6 years ago
thank you ))

I learn to draw about half a year, and this particular technique for about two months.
LoneWolf (author)  beshur6 years ago
Your welcome :)

That's great, only two months and you've already done that!!!!
I didn't really start buying drawing materials and books and stuff until about 2 years ago.
beshur LoneWolf6 years ago
I have a good teacher - she is actually a master in this kind of art :)
Ludmila Dvoriakivska
LoneWolf (author)  beshur6 years ago

I think my favorite artist would be Nolon Stacey. My drawing style is a lot like his.

That's great!!! You have a horse?
Goodhart Amyz4 years ago
Judge? I judge it as very well done and you have promising talent !
Amyz Goodhart4 years ago
Thank you thats so sweet!
Goodhart Amyz4 years ago
I honestly meant it too. I think they are better then the sketches I had to do for my Pyrographs.

i have been using a wacom tablet to draw digitally for about a month now and heres a few ive done/ am working on. i do a lot of posters for bands in and around the bay area and have added the wacom as one more tool in my arsenal.
LoneWolf (author)  james12145 years ago
Cool, you should do one of the ible's robot.
Hisart LoneWolf5 years ago
I love my Wacom!

Here is my Ibles' robot.

Meglymoo87 Hisart2 months ago


LoneWolf (author)  Hisart5 years ago
Wow, awesome job!!! I have one of the Bamboo pads... are they similar?
Hisart LoneWolf5 years ago
Wacom makes the Bamboo tablet which is usually 3" x 5". I have the Wacom Intuos 3 which has a 9" x 12" drawing area so it is like drawing on a regular drawing pad. I want a Cintiq which is a cross between the tablet and a flat screen so you draw on the image, just like a drawing pad!
LoneWolf (author)  Hisart5 years ago
That would be cool.
The first two are fantastic, and I like the second two as well.
Amyz james12144 years ago
awesome pics their really cool looking!
Goodhart6 years ago
I wish I had pictures of the sketches I did, before I transferred them to wood via pyrography.....most of them, done on a waxy tracing paper like drawing media,  with a soft pencil,  I could then flip it over  and transfer the outline of what I wanted on the wood, to the wood,  and then burn from there.
Do you have any of the wood pictures?
I still have a few at home,  I would have to "take" pictures of them though.  I believe I sold the Santa one, and maybe even the ship.  I know I have sold a few wolves....it was one of my favorite things to do, besides  horses. :-)
LoneWolf (author)  Goodhart6 years ago
That's awesome, I love wolves :D
I am sorry, but I can't seem to find ANY of my wolf pyro's (I liked the one howling at the moon, with a native American bust in the moon, one.  Was REALLY hard to do).

Here are a few others though:

LoneWolf (author)  Goodhart6 years ago
WOW!!!!!! I love that beagle one at the bottom!!! :D
Sorry about the picture quality, my wife took those, and I don't know where any of them are anymore to retake.

The one on the rectangular piece is actually done from a native American doll as the subject.
LoneWolf (author)  Goodhart6 years ago
That's alright, I can still make out what they are :)

That's cool, did you actually have a Native American doll that you worked off of or did you find a picture of one?
I had a picture of one from a Doll museum.
LoneWolf (author)  Goodhart6 years ago
Neat. I work off of pictures occasionaly. But I never use a grid, for some reason I always mess up when I use them.
It seems odd, but if I do a picture from a picture, I "need" it to look the same, but if I draw some"thing" freehand, I can do that (but not so good from a 2-d picture)
Hisart LoneWolf5 years ago
The key to using a grid is to keep it small enough that you don't have enough room to get easily confused and yes a 1pixel x 1pixel is too small. LOL

Usually the photo reference gets a 1/4" x 1/4" square and the drawing gets a 1" x 1" square. That means a 2" photo reference gets enlarged to an 8" drawing.
LoneWolf (author)  Hisart5 years ago
Oh wow, in that case I was probably messing up because my grid squares were to big!!! Depending on the size of the picture I often did it 1x1" squares.
Hisart LoneWolf5 years ago
If you are working from an 8" x 10" that's only eighty squares and if the figure is complete (not just a bust) then the face is most likely only one or two squares. That is a lot of info to tackle.

If you take it down to 1/4" squares then the face will take up 16 to 36 squares! That is much easier to deal with and makes the layout much less of a pain.

You can use a permanent marker on an acetate sheet (clear plastic) to lay out the squares and lay it over the photo. That way you can reuse it and also not damage the original reference photo.
LoneWolf (author)  Hisart5 years ago
That makes sense, I'll definitly have to try doing that! I have a Micheals stor near us that probably has those pre made.
Hisart LoneWolf5 years ago
I looked, and Michae'ls doesn't have pre-made grid sheets, but it does have Dura-Lar sheets which is an acetate alternative. I've never used the stuff but it looks like it should work. You're still going to have to put the lines on it, but that's not a big deal. LOL
LoneWolf (author)  Hisart5 years ago
Well at least I know where to get them, I would have ended up having to draw the grid lines on the peice of paper anyway so I guess it really isn't a big deal. Thanks for looking!
Hisart LoneWolf5 years ago
It will save you time and resources in the long run, so take your time and be accurate.

Anything to help! ;-D
The ship is the most detailed of this bunch, but that hard wood bowl with the little bird in it, was difficult too.
LoneWolf (author)  Goodhart6 years ago
Yeah, I like the sailboat. I used to be good at drawing sailboats, but never that good.......and you were using a woodburner!!!!
These are all very good. I especially like the second one in the first row. The wood is very striking.
Thank you. The one you mention was hard to do. It was a darker wood for starters, and also (not recommended) lacquered, as it was originally a candy dish, though formerly unadorned. I had to lightly sand off most of the lacquer (so as not to poison myself with fumes) before burning the area. I did one awhile back on Walnut too, a small piece (VERY hard to burn hard woods), that I didn't really like.....I haven't seen it for awhile. The ship (#1) and the toilet tissue holder (bunny) were two of the more detailed ones I did.
Wow! Those are really cool... :D
Thank you !
Love these. Awesome
Thank you. I do wish I could a picture of some of my wolves or the picture of the santa claus making his list (those were my best days, when I had REALLY good eyesight), the tiny little names on the list, which is only about 3 inches across, some of them are actually ledgible. That piece sold back aways, so I can't even retake any pictures of it.
very nice drawing....
If you mean that sketch of the wolf, that was done by Lonewolf, the author of this thread, not me :-)
LoneWolf (author)  Goodhart6 years ago
That's too bad. You drew them before you burned them?!!! Wow, you must have been good at drawing too!!!
I can sketch fairly well.

Amazing you all are so talented!!
I found these little cards(2.5"x3.5") and had them for about a year before I decided to make these.

Nice :)

bapt GabbieZee3 years ago
great job on the card
I love the style
Nice! Here's some of my work, I specialize in pen & ink and have been trying to get into naturalist illustration.

A picture I did of my mom from a photo when she was younger. I didn't scan it, so the picture isn't wonderful.

Nice :)

Great work !
Very Nice! Have you used hugin before? It definitely tutorial dependant, but a good way to scan larger pix at home piecewise.
you got a good eye

Heres a few drawings of mine, I always draw free hand, no reference pictures. Just trying to get some exposure. these are either graphite charcoal or colored pencils, or all three.

I'm 33 always liked drawing and am self thought. I hasent drawn in a few year and even then it was often, I use to draw a lot in my teens and early 20s then slowed down. But I'm starting to make time to draw again at 33, but I decided to challenge my self and start to copie more detailed and shaded drawings.

I still need to learn a lot but I'm happy with my progress.

What do you all think of my drawings and were do you think I could touch up in my skills?

I know my down falls. In these picture. Be good to see if I'm right. X



Beautiful. These are very detailed and expressive. Much better than anything I can do, so I can't say where you can "touch up". I would say just keep up the good work.

Its not the best sketch I have ever done but here is an old buddy of mine. I like to sketch like this an have a feeling that sometime in the future I might create a few ibles doing how to arts,, like the sneaky techniques to end up with photo realistic using tools like pantographs an camera lucida or the grid method,, not everyone wants to learn how to do measured drawings with there thumb.. To be fair I have wanted to create a youtube channel looking at sneaky art tips for a while so I have around 12 instructables in my head ready to make on this subject.

I am 12 and i drew this with pen (;



EmileCole3 years ago
"THE TEMPLE", about 20x24 inches. It's a free hand pen and ink drawing I did loosely based on a Roman style temple ruin in Turkey I once saw a picture of. It took about four to five hundred hours to do with a Rapidograph drafting pen that draws a line about the width of a human hair. Just stippling (dots), no pencil sketch, no ruler (not a straight line in the whole thing, in fact, no "lines" at all), just one tiny dot after another. Not the best shot, it's a lot like trying to photograph a giant dollar bill....

Great job!

I don't think that is possible. I mean, I don't have four to five hundred hours to stippling with a pen that draws the width of a human hair. THAT'S INSANE! Fantastic job!

Nice work :)
Nice work!
VERY nice
