Dalu's Stuff and Nonsense

Post by Dalu on Tue Jun 05, 2012 10:29 am

Here I shall post my meagre sketches, pastels, etc. from back at the Creation Lab.  You will also (if you have known me on the Creation Lab) see either old art I couldn't post or new art I still can't post in the CL.  Naturally, if you've never seen my art before, all of this will be new.  Laughing
    I LOVE comments, questions, and especially criticism for my art.  I'd never get any better without any of it (or at least I would never get any worse, I hope).  So, if you've got an idea or suggestion or anything, please don't hesitate to lay it out straight to me.  

Lastly, please be a bit patient with me as I try to figure out all this picture stuff here.  I'm going to try to post new art on a regular basic. ;D

Ta, ta!

--Galley--

Alone with the World
This is one I drew some time ago while experimenting with trees and more realistic people.  The tree was actually in my backyard.  

Charcoal Edit


Original






The Dawn Treader

This I also drew forever ago. Most of you have probably already seen it, but I'm trying to go from oldest to newest. LOL  I drew it from a picture in my Narnia book.  Enjoy!



Helm's Deep

This I sketched from an almost identical (but certainly much better) drawing by one of the Lord of the Rings film illustrators.  I discovered how carefully planned even the most careless pencil-stroke really must be. LOL


Barad-Dur
 The wicked fortress of Sauron, Barad-Dur--no, I'm not about to go into a lecture. Razz  Anyway, another LOTR sketch from an original sketch. I got the originals, btw, from my extending trilogy set, which has sketches backing all the discs in the case.  I drew this...uhh...last year, I believe.  Again, pencil strokes are amazingly important. Love criticism! Wink



Desolate
 I know! I promise, the next one I post NO ONE will have seen before.  I'm just trying to get through my old stuff. Razz  So, here's a sketch of a really neat tree outside my window.  It bursts into dark pink blooms during the spring--a far cry from the eerie scene here.  Comments welcome!




Gene Carson

This was my first every portrait.  I drew it waaaay on back there in 2010, when I was jest a wee lass. Razz  Anyway, that's my brother being silly (naturally).  He's pretending to be a VERY distorted version of an evil air marshal in the hijacking film Flightplan.  The actual picture I got this from is hilarious. Wow, just looking at it now, I can see all sorts of flaws.  But I guess that WAS my first one, not that I'm much better. LOL
Enjoy (if possible)!






The Bookworm

Here was my second portrait, this one of ME being silly.  I suppose that's me when I've just read a terribly frightening thing in a book and can't bear to go on and see what happens next. Razz  More coming after this!





The Last Sentinel of the West
 Yes, I know, rather an embellished title for such a simple sketch, but that was my original title for it.  Perhaps I should have just named it "Courage". At any rate, I know I probably put too much "intensive" sequence in the background, which rather contrasts oddly with the simple actions of the foreground, but when I realised it, it was too late.  The perspective, of course, is all wrong.  Does anyone see anything else that can help me with this one? ;D

"Courage is knowing the doom and defying it nonetheless."




The Pretty Twinkle
 Just couldn't resist posting a sketch of one of my cats.  As some of you know, my brother and I make our animals talk with different voices.  Twinkle is an extremely arrogant little kitty who thinks she is the most gorgeous of all cats, and all humans are imbeciles.  She talks in some sort of deep Russian/British accent to give you an idea of how she sounds. LOL  
I would say this was my first real drawing of a cat.





Faramir of Gondor

 This was my third human portrait.  Now that I look at it, it's definitely not an exact make of Faramir from the Lord the Rings films--grrrrr....Seems I made him too round in the face.  Like J-red said (I think it was J-red?) when I posted a rather husky drawing of his LEGO figure, this is Faramir....after Thanksgiving dinner. Razz




Finsteraarhorn

 
This is the highest point in the Burnese Alps in Switzerland (I think it's Switzerland).  ANYWAY, the real thing is about a million million times better than this wee little sketch.  In fact, the real thing is just plain breath-taking.  I was working with shading to make clouds this time.  If anyone has any ideas on how to make realistic clouds with pencils, please tell me! Very Happy




Crreamund Rrreamund (AKA, Raymond, Creamy, Tea cup Wonder, No-more-Scruples, and the list goes on. Razz)
 Here is one of our favourite roosters, Creamy.  He's a Bantam Old English, which means he's super sweet, tolerant, tiny, and arrogant all in one.  Enjoy! Very Happy

That's really great! I like the way you drew the hair, and the tree, just the pencil strokes that work well with the design. The depth/perception looks nice too. Very Happy

Wow! Really great drawings. I like the charcoal version, and some of the smudging adds a lot of texture. Great work!

First of all, you used the balloon emote I added, YAY! Razz

Second, that's a nice drawing, with a nice setting. The girl, she seems happy in her solitude. Maybe she's spaced out. xD

Joshy:
Thanks, chap! You're my first "commenter"! Very Happy

Kojan:
Thanks! LOL, the smudging was probably by accident. Razz XD

Cotton Candy:
Ha, I couldn't resist using it, it was so cute! LOL, she's supposed to be happy in her solitude...of course, maybe she is a bit spaced. Razz

Mwahahahaa:
Thanks, I'll try to post more today! And I absolutely love your signature! It's all so true! Very Happy

Yes, it is cute! Did I mention how awesome it is to have another girl on this forum? Candy wave <----- also cute! Razz

I'd be happy at the right time, to have some solitude like that. I'd also space out, thinkin' about - yeah. Razz

All the drawings look great. (Though not my favorite of the batch, the one of the Dawn Treader could almost be an illustration in the book.) Just one complaint... Its not Baradur. Its Barad-Dur. Razz

Yeah, call me Rhino, that's my usual name, I'm just in 3vil dictator mode atm.

You know, every time you put a new drawing up, I'm going to have to post here, saying how good it is. Razz The latest one of Barad-Dur is no exception.

Yeah, it did, rather. I was a bit surprised, though, that it didn't take more. I've had eyeballs give me more trouble than that. Naturally, though, since eyeballs are VERY hard to draw if you're trying to get an exact copy. Razz
