Doodle 026 - Painting, Fox and Dragon

Alright, I managed to finish the bear I started on Friday. It was quite a task, in between my messed up hand and the fact that I hadn't painted anything in so long... well, it isn't the best of paintings by any means, but I am proud of myself for not giving up on it and finishing it.

I added some textures at the end to create the background and a bit of depth on the bear itself.

A Beary Haunted Butler (digital painting) - Photoshop. I think it took me 5 hours or more, I lost track of time on this one.
I was pretty exhausted after I was done with the bear, so I decided to just do a couple of super quick sketches. You can tell I am tired by my sloppy line work, I was determined to get out at least 1 doodle though.

Happy Fox - Graphite and mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 5 mins.

Smelling the wild flowers - Graphite and mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 15 mins.
We have a hurricane heading our way, I will keep updating as long as we have power, but if it hits us head on we might be without internet, etc for a bit, so if I don't post on Monday or Tuesday, don't panic.

Love the look on the fox's face! "I'm extremely happy and you can't take that from me!"

Nomi said...

I love the fox too!

He looks like he jumped into that position and can barely contain his wiggle.

The bear looks quite grave. (Pun intended.)

The fox has the exact same expression my black cat gets when he basks in the sun!

Also, I can't help imagining the bear butler has his disapproving look because someone used the wrong fork or poured the wrong beverage into the wrong glass.

I love your "sloppy" little fox, what a cutie. Also, we are at the edge of the cone of the hurricane...Good luck.

I adore red foxes! Great drawing! Stay Safe!

Love the dragon--your sloppy is better than most people's neat, hehe.

Saudade said...

@Victoria: Aw! Yes, he looks just like that.

@Nomi: LOL yes, very grave indeed.

@Mrsblocko: My cats also get that look when I scratch their chins. I am sure the bear knows a thing or two about fancy table manners.

@So-Sew-Me: Thanks! Looks like the hurricane is ignoring us now. We got lucky!

@Jan: Thanks! I will :)

@Andrea: Thank you!

I love bears, and I love Victorian; this is so cool! I want to take him to the Dickens' Christmas Fair I go to every year.

I'm another over from Epbot, and love all your drawings. They remind me of a high-school friend of mine who's now an animator. (search SoleilSmile on DeviantArt)

Thank you for so many beautiful pictures!

Ah... I do love your dragons! Maybe I just love dragons in general... but that's besides the point! :)
