i have tired to draw realistic pictures before, but they never came out good. these are my first attempts to drawing a realistic dog by using pencils with different hard/softness and an kneaded eraser.

before. i didn't get the first sketch right, so the nose is not as high as it should have been


after...




onto the next pittie! :) this one i took more progress pictures of






i am a lot happier with this one. the eyes still throw me off a bit, but that is how they were in the picture :eek:

What wonderful art! I do draw a lot but I can't seem to do anything very realistically :giggle:
Those are great, look like he's going to just leap off the page!
i am very picky about which pictures i try to do. they have to have a lot of obvious shading and they have to be a short haired animal- thus pitties are the easiest for me (and i love them!!). i am thinking about trying a horse next... :)

this was the original of the second one. the light and dark spots are a bit off, but oh well :p i am thinking of trying new techniques with the next one

*this is not my picture, it belongs to the rightful owner**

for comparison....

Great talent. I am in awe. More please!
i was starting to draw a new one, but the sketch was off, so i am either going to try again or use a new picture

I love your sketches Shelly! You're very talented :)

I used to love to draw many years ago. I was fairly good back then, but certainly not anymore lol. I haven't had the time or mental energy lately to do anything creative, but it's on the bucket list to pick up once again someday.
