Saturday’s Sketch:



Keen the Bean (work in progress), Graphite, 5.5 X 8.5, C.nick, 2014



This Saturday I drew Keen seeing as it was his birthday on the 17th. I posted a picture of him that day as well, so here is that. The lines are a little dark but other than that it looks really good.

Friday’s Finished: 



Seamus Heaney, Graphite with White Gel Pen, 5.5 X 8.5, C.nick, 2014



Here’s Seamus Heaney’s portrait finished! It would have been his Birthday last Sunday and I started this last Saturday. I got a white gel pen yesterday so I’ve been running around putting white ink on everything just to see what it looks like, I think it really brought this drawing up a notch. Hope you all like it.

Dog Trainer Dina #12: Tito & Dina attend a Wedding



It’s hard to believe that this is the twelfth Dina. I started last May and did one each month, so I’ve reached my goal of sticking to project for a year. Hopefully there will be many more of these and they’ll get better and better.

Work in Progress Wednesday:

 Seamus Heaney (Work in Progress), Graphite, 5.5 X 8.5, C.nick, 2014

Came a long way today and it’s looking good. Though the way it breaks off at the forehead looks funny.
