Viking figurehead

My parents have a beautiful log home in western North Carolina. In the heart of the house is a sweeping cathedral ceilings opening up the great room (living room) to windows that look off the montains and into the valley. It is a beautiful picture any time of the year. (Image taken end of last summer from the front deck.)

When I was home my Dad was looking on Pinterest at some Viking ship figure heads and really liked the one below. Asking me to come up with some drawings for him so he could create one for the great rooms center mast. Those drawings follow below and I am looking forward to see the end result.

Giraffes are some strange looking creatures and most likely why they facanate me. His legs look to be all tangled up and looking to face plant any moment but at the same time in perfect control.

Details: watercolor pencil, brown color pencil and ballpoint pen.

The sketchbook Project

I joined this year's sketchbook project. Where I thought it was an interesting and wonderful concept to submit a sketchbook to a library of other sketchbooks. I experience was less than stellar and you'll see some of that result but they finally were able to get my sketchbook up on the digital library. The link follows below, please check it out I worked really hard on it and it was my first attempt ever to draw superhero's so it's something amusing either way.

Laughing Goat

I don't know why by I laughed the whole time I was working on the drawing. Maybe it's the ears or the pleased look on the little guys face....
