Nice job freehanding.  O0 I see your barn became a little elongated..... mine kind of ended up a bit squishy!  ;D

Well done, you're doing famously.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

 :flowers: Keep up the good work, MEZ!  I loved learning how to draw from Nolan and Dennis!  It was like MAGIC to me when I saw that just graphite pencil and paper could create something!  And I never drew anything ever before PB!

Hi All!


I found the resizing exercise fun although I've discovered I need a new ruler, you live and learn!

Any comments welcome as always  :)

Love your little squirrel.  I think he did a back flip after you posted him and he landed on his feet.

Yours has a nice natural flow to it.  So smooth.

Here is my extra practice pic. I don't feel I know what to do with the feet so I left them...  ;D

Mez,

Good job.

Like the sexy little swag you gave the beak. 

Whenever I get stumped by feet, I hide them in grass.

Another great drawing!   :clap:  it is hard to see the feet for the shadows.  I did a google search for duck brown from behind and found this showing two ducks standing.  It may help you to see the feet in the reference better.

looks great Mez, well done :clap: :clap: :clap:

Just straighten the top of the beak, yours is too curved O0

For the feet - a good trick is to add blades of grass in that area. You then not only don't have to draw the feet, the grass anchors the bird as well O0
