Default Dog Drawing.

Here's a dog drawing i've done this evening! I'm quite pleased with it!
Unfortunately I don't have a scanner so I have to take pics of them with a camera and then put them on the computer. Seems to take something away from the drawing but i'm not sure what!!

I would look very closely at the shape of the eyes..we tend to draw what we know is there and not really see that the shape may be quite different. Try turning a pic over and drawing it upside down sometime.

Drawing is hard hard hard and takes a lifetime of practicing..i have been doing it for 35 years!!!!!! Please don't stop cause i for one enjoy your art tremendously and this is the first time ever i have had friends to share ART with! since i left school. Please please please please d0on't stop..i find your drawings and those of the others fresh adn wonderful..full of excitement and GREAT POTENTIAL!!!! there is no right or wrong to art..only practice and the enjoyment of each development. I have had your cat in my mind all yesterday for it has something that i am afraid i have lost and that is freshness! Please don't stop or i will feel like i have failed my new art friends..and that would be so sad..i would be so sad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it would be a total shame to waste the talent that you have..even if it had nothing to do with me. I just said that about the eyes because that was what was said to ME! when i stared studying at school. That is what we all get said to us..don't stop

I agree with Smkie; don't stop Gustav. Some of us dream of doing drawings like this. It's a talent that shouldn't be wasted.
