Old digital drawings(more)

Another set of drawings I did on the sketchfu website. I can only see these because I saved then to Facebook before the site closed several years ago now.

I would like to find another site where I  could practice my drawing skills. But there is nothing close to it I can find in drawing apps.

Anyway it’s nice to see my artistic memories.

Based on a tile

FB_IMG_1558221491692

This is a digital drawing based on an old tile. I won’t bore you with the app I used it’s on my tablet and I haven’t been able to use it for a while as it needs fixing.

I drew it in 2016 and I don’t think I’ve shared it here before. It just popped up on my Facebook memories, and why not share it? It will just disappear into the aether again if I don’t.

I did try and create a glossy shine on it, but the chin is too big!

Sketchfu cats 2007 to about 2011?

I may have the date wrong when I stopped doing these. The site closed and I downloaded a lot of my drawings so they didn’t get lost. They are drawings using the simple tools that were on the site. If you have seen my other drawings I posted here, you will know I did some challenges, there are a couple of those here. Plus portraits of my cat Tig who sadly died, but who I still remember with love. Than there are some random cartoons and doodles. I❤️cats!

Petals

Untitled48_001

Just a simple ArtRage oils app drawing…..

I’m mesmerised by colours,

by petals shimmering in the breeze.

Water goes deep in the earth

and  shapes the roots

raises a stem,

Leaves unfurl

and a flower opens

petals pink and bright.

Birds and bees sip the nectar,

pollen mixes and seeds set.

Now the flower fades

But next year

another flower will bloom.

Eyes digitally drawn

Don’t look at me like that. It’s scary, she said. The screen stared back, green glaring eyes and red scaled skin. Only the slow movement of its pupils indicated life. The screen had been blank up until a few minutes ago. A voice had said humans were under control by the Jranson Collective and if all people worked with them they would be spared destruction.

She scanned her phone. The same image was being sent to it. All computer services are in our power, said the staring eyes. Do not attempt to attack us.

What the devil can we do? She thought. Nothing came to mind, but maybe? She picked up the land-line phone, a steady dialling tone greeted her. Now what’s the Doctors number? she thought.

 

Panda drawing

Another sketchfu challenge drawing I did so many years ago. Pandas have been in decline for years. They are limited by the food they eat (bamboo) and their habitat is disappearing like many places where the pressure of agriculture outweighs the needs of animals.

Panda jaws are very strong to chew bamboo which is why they have a fixed characteristic “smile”.

They are iconic animals and the World wide fund for nature uses a stylised panda as its symbol.

There are breeding programmes but nothing can compare to an animal in the wild, not cooped up in a zoo. Unfortunately poaching is a prolem as with other animals like gorillas.

I loved drawing this. Some challenges were a bit irksome but this was fun.
