Baboon drawing

hannah_lewis_baboon

Along with the lion drawing, I’m drawing an african baboon. So far everything going well, but the detail of the hair is going to take me a long time to do.

I would love it if you would leave a comment and let me know what you think about this drawing, and if you have any tips that you can give me.

Stage 3 drawing the lion’s fur

I’m now at the stage where I am drawing the lion’s fur. I’m taking my time and trying not to rush it because I want it to turn out really good. After that all I need to do is the eyes and the snout. Again I would love to have feedback (positive or negative) so I know what you think.

Stage 2 of Lion drawing

The next stage to my lion drawing. So far this photograph has taken me much longer than I expected, but it’s my first animal drawing, so I want to do it properly.

Feel free to comment on this drawing, as I would love to know what you think. 😀

Derwent Pencil Wrap

Since I’ve began drawing, I’ve grown a bit tired of carrying around tins of pencils whenever I draw outside of my home. I thought about getting a pencil case, but if I’m out and about I wanted something that would give me easy access to the pencils instead of me continuously digging to find the right pencil.

I found this pencil wrap online when I was searching for charcoal pencils and at £4.99 I thought that I could give it a go. It arrived today and in great time too because I’m going on a long train ride, so I can spend most of my time drawing.

Beginning of my lion drawing

hannah_lewis_lion_drawing

The beginning of my pencil drawing of a lion. This will be my second colouring pencil drawing that I have ever spent time doing. I’m not sure what to think about it so far because it looks like a dog to me, but it’s early stages.

Although I mainly specialise in photography I wanted to try and regain my skills in drawing and painting, so from now on I will be blogging about all different  art work that I produce.

MDF wood measurements

I’m so excited I’m going to my university tomorrow to cut out the wood for my room box. I’m not excited about cutting out the wood its more about knowing that I’m going somewhere with this project. I’m not hanging around doing nothing which I felt I did all last term… but thats behind me and I’m now going to try my best to produce as much work as I can.

Below is the individual wood sizes for each of the five pieces;

Side x2: 22cm x 35cm

Front x2: 30cm x 22cm

Base x 1: 35cm x 30cm

The overall wood measurement has changed to 80cm x 75 cm since I repositioned how the pieces would lie out on the sheet of MDF. (Is this clear? I hope it makes sense)

MDF size to use for the room boxes

The overall MDF size that I will buy is;

Width: 80cm

Length: 90cm

Thickness: 1-1.5cm (if thats possible)

This size is reasonable and has enough room to include the tenon joint.
