Whoa wow I have been away for a very longtime! I've just finished my freshman year of college where I had no time for fun!!! So this summer I shall be active!!!!
Hi Leonaenae, what lovely pictures! I am not a "pastel" drawer, but admire you for attempting this medium....it always looks very hard to me! The horse is good, although it would be nice to see the whole picture to get a better idea of the content! The whale has beautiful colours, very vibrant.
I hope you enjoy yourself here at Arttrade, it will be great to see some more of your work, love Helz x
Thank you so much. You should give them a try, they are really fun to work with if you have the more whats the word im looking for oily/watery like type that go on like paint. I now have a a photo of the horse picture!! shall post it at the end of this post!!!
Hi Leona and welcome to Arttrade Forums
Think your work is interesting, I like the second drawing more because of the live colours.
Photos aren't of very good quality (a bit blurred), maybe you should try to post them in smaller size.
Are you attending any art courses?
Hope you'll enjoy yourself here.
Thanks for the comment! When I get back over to my Grandmothers (i gave her the whale as a gift) I will take a photo of it closer up this time! And with a better camera.
No, Im not in any art courses. Havent Had an art class since 6th grade and I am now a freshman in college. With all those wopping 5 courses which are allowed per semester without paying extra heading toward my major/minor/and general studies. im hoping that maybe I can fit one in this coming semester if my schedule will allow it.
Welcome to the forums!
Ps: I attached your images for better quality. Hope you don't mind.
Oh of course!!! Whatever helps the eyes see it better lol! And thank you comments like that are so encouraging and make me want to do better.
