I’ve been experimenting with creating animal drawings, the idea is that i can make some cute eye catching designs for valentines cards ready for the next Arts Fayre at the store, its also been fun and good practice drawing animals from memory šŸ™‚

i’ve been doing them rough in pencil and then using a fine liner to make them look more stylized, my style of illustration has been developing over the course of the first and second year and i appear to have found my style of work in kitsch line drawings, at first i only drew people but i now have discovered i find drawing animals more enjoyable, you can create alot of expression in the face of an animal whereas in a human i find it quite hard to keep everything looking proportionate when displaying more complex emotions.


below are my drawings šŸ™‚


i chose to draw them in positions that gave a bit more character and life to the animals than just head on šŸ™‚ i liked drawing these 2 cats and this exercise is also helping me learn about anatomy, which i am interested in learning for the sake of trying out animation.

the deer above is by far my favorite drawing so far from this exercise, i am definitely going to continue developing this one and experiment with colour and perhaps make it a mono print or a screen print šŸ™‚1457549_10153719575220151_596229301_n 1526325_10153719575745151_882501034_n

the ones with presents are designs for a hallmark competition i’m working on also šŸ™‚
