Accio charcoal.

Wingardium Leviosa!
Edit 01.18.11: I lied. I forgot to scan it before I gave it to my friend. So here you just have the ugly camera version. My bad.
A picture of Emma Watson for my friend; this is a picture from my camera so excuse the odd colors (flash does weird things to a picture). I haven't scanned it in yet since the fixative isn't sprayed on yet; I don't want the colors smudging onto the screen. This is done in charcoal; haven't done that in a couple of years, so it took me a while to get the hang of it again. Also very trial and error...I haven't drawn human faces in a while either. Good practice, though! It's not perfect, though...need more practice with faces. Eventually! Anyway, I was too lazy to do the details on her shirt so no flowers (they're not the point anyway). I'll post a better picture of it later once I can scan it. Hope you guys like it!

Childhood memories.

Be the Hobbes to my Calvin.
Edit 01.14.11: And now I present to you the colored version of my drawing. It's cropped, so it doesn't show the entire picture although it's basically the same (just some more grass). I colored Calvin and Hobbes with colored pencils and painted the background with watercolors. I would've done the whole thing in colored pencil if I weren't impatient and if I didn't know that I would probably screw the background up somehow with colored pencils. I think this turned out rather nicely and I hope he enjoys this picture. My mom originally thought I drew this to put up in our house or something so she suggested getting a frame for it and I had to let her down. This goes to someone else, mother dear! I'll probably draw her a Totoro or a Snoopy to compensate.
Another drawing for a friend--not done yet, I'm going to color it with colored pencils. I may use watercolor for the background...not sure yet. I'm sure you've all seen thi…

My life for Aiur.

My wife for hire?
Edit 01.01.11: Uploaded the watercolor version of my drawing. I realized as I was painting it that my proportions were still off but whatever. Creative license, yeah? Since I am basing this drawing off another drawing...y'know...I can take some artistic liberties.  I don't want to do a background because I can't think of a good background. It's harder than you think! Anyway, that's what I'm going to end up giving my friend so...yeah, hope he likes it.
It's been a while, hasn't it? I've been slacking off on drawing because of finals and then after that it was pure laziness...but no more! It's a new year and that means new habits, and I am really going to try extra hard to get some drawings up on this thing. I have already planned a couple in my mind...
So, uh, this beautiful creature is a zealot from StarCraft. My friend requested a drawing of it for Christmas, and I've only started to get around to it now (bad friend!). I'…
