Starting the dog course. Much more fun than the rose.

Ya, the nose needs a lot of work.

Barry,

The dog looks happy.  Not sure about the eyes.  Doc's left eye seems misshapen.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Gosh, I missed commenting on a stack of dogs but they are all very well done.


Barry, you will LOVE this course and I agree with Mea about the eyes and the nose needs tweaking but otherwise a fantastic start to my all time favourite course. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

great start Barry :heeha: :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

What you want to do is take some baking / parchment paper, draw your original outlines onto it, then lay it over the drawing. That way you will see where the drawing has strayed from your original lines and will be able to fine tune from there O0

Hey guys!  This is my first crack at drawing with all of those different pencils!  I have been dabbling in watercolor for a while, but my inability to draw holds me back a lot.  This course has been so much fun so far!  I feel like I have learned a ton already and am excited to see what Week 2 brings!

 :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:   LadyJustice, first of all, a very warm  :welcome:  to our PB family.  I am absolutely blown away by your drawing of the dog which wasn't the easiest one to start with.  You really did an awesome job and can be very proud of your drawing.  You will most certainly enjoy the course and while having fun, you will learn a stack too as you have already found out. I am looking so forward to viewing more of your work.

Hi HappyChappy/Patricia!

Thank you so much for the kind words!  This is a whole new world for me, and I am very excited!  Growing up, my sister was always the "artistic one", so I never really did anything with it, but as it turns out, if you follow the instructors lessons here, you can actually create something that is recognizable as a dog!  I see so many mistakes in it, but I'm also really proud of it! haha 

It's really nice of you to post so many encouraging words on these boards.  Thank you very much for taking your time to do that! :thankyou:

LadyJustice it is my pleasure to give credit where it is due and your dog was really very well done. Amazing how we don't think that we have any art in us until we scratch a little and then find it. I only started a few years ago and I am so sorry now that I left it so late in life but then I never had the time when I was younger and raising a family. Now with grandchildren, I still don't have much free time.  Anyway, you are doing absolutely great and as I said in an earlier post, I am so looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Lady Justice,

Looks like you are off to a good start.

YES, learning to draw is absolutely key to success.  The Let's Draw course on Paintbasket literally turned me up-side-down.  I can draw now!!!!

Here is my take on this project. I have a dog that looks very much like this and perhaps he will be next on the dog list. Once finished I looked it over and was disappointed that it did not look exactly like the model dog - then I realized I drew this and it looks like a dog! That is something I could not have done 5 or 6 months ago!

Thanks everyone for the past comments, as always there were extreamly helpful.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: A great drawing Barry ... aren't you proud of yourself for drawing so well after just 5 or 6 months?  You should be as you have come a long way. Lovely to see.
