Practice limbs and head – Dragon


I want to sketch a dragon, one that is earthy and solid. I have an idea in my head, I can picture the scene. I just need to practice a lot before I do it. So I’ve practiced doing a few limbs. I find feet (just like the human ones) very hard to get right. …

Woman – graphics tablet wrong canvas size grrr!


I drew this earlier on my graphics tablet.ย  I’m so mad because I have no idea how to choose canvas sizes on some of these programs so this one came out really small and when it’s enlarged (as it is now), it’s no longer clear.ย  I thought I did really well with this one too …
