Alesoun's Anything Artwork;Can you see what it is yet?
The skull I tried to post didn't show up on here; and it's always annoyed me. So I'm posting this just so that some image shows opposite my sketchbook. Hope it works:
Trying to start a sketchbook. I've been looking at the anatomy study on here, and thought I'd try a skull. I'm so rusty that after two attempts where EVERYTHING was skew-whiff, I wimped out and used a grid. I've left the grid in so that it's obvious I "cheated"

Okay! *glowers* I knew this would happen! I used Manage Attachments.... but I can't see my pic....what did I do wrong? PCs hate me!
You should check out this thread if you have not already:
If I go Advanced, I just get an "Error on page" when I try to add an attachment. I swear this PC is laughing at me!
Okaaay! Let's see if this okl cartoon works!
Here's hoping the skull works this time.....
Alas Poor Yorrick!
It's taken me longer to post this than it did to do it!
Here's hoping this time!
D the Dawg!
Done with my daughter's coloured pencils this evening........
More dogs, and some things from the mouse family
PC problems today (or maybe I'm my PC's problem)......
Anway, tried more stuff with shading on the dog
Then drew a skull (think it's a rat) that has been lying about for years.
Nice sketchbook. My favorites are the dogs and the skull studies. Need more life drawing and anatomy studies in here tho. Keep at it.
Thanks, Envisor. I haven't drawn or painted for a very long time; but now that I've started again it's like rediscovering some part of me that's been missing. I'll try to sketch something every day,- and I may post some pics of that rat's skull tomorrow, and maybe see if I can build some sort of creature on it.....
Well, I was too busy to sketch yesterday, and woke up with a migraine this morning which meant I couldn't see anything but zig-zags for a while.
I did these this afternoon, though; all (except the dragon-thingy) from photos in a magazine. They were all going to be pencil drawings, but I just couldn't resist the colour of the baby birds' beaks, so they're pencil and coloured pencil..
All I've had time for today....
....and so far, I don't think I'm improving. I really need to do some hand studies......
Tried to do studies of my own hand today, but the phone kept ringing and the doorbell, too; so I kept having to move.
Anyway, I remembered that it was Beltane, when the "Old Hag" of Winter gives way to the "Bride" of Summer,- it's a fertility thing,- and so I started playing around with this. Not sure if it's working, though.....
Thanks for the support in my sketchbook.
I like the German Shepherd studies and the lastest BELTANE did you use reference or is it from the head. I think once you can consolidate your time you will really be about to dedicate your full energy into your art.
From what I see here the rust is peeling off rather steady so unless your were one of the greats when you stopped your work is back on the path.
hope that we both improve greatly this year. keep at it.
Transition from Art Critic to Artiste - Diligence
, that's all I need.
