‘Jack and Jessie’ Springador drawing – 35 progression photos

Hi, welcome to my personal blog UnicornPostbox, please see below progression photographs of my latest amateur art A2 size drawing of two Springadors, Jack and Jessie…

I used my A3 size light pad to trace the outline of Jack and Jessie, Derwent sketching pencils to shade, coloured pencils for the block background, and a black Pilot FriXion pen to make each image ‘pop’…

Hope you enjoy 🙂 🙂

I drew Jack and Jessie as a gift for Paula, mine and mum’s great friend of many years…

I explained I am not a professional artist and only draw amateur as a hobby, but she was absolutely over the moon with her surprise present, and says she will cherish the drawing forever of her two lovely dogs…

So that makes me very happy indeed! 🙂 🙂

Thank you so much for taking the time to read/ view this latest UnicornPostbox blog post. Your ongoing support means so much…

Please keep a look out for some new Travel/Theatre blog posts coming very soon!  🙂 🙂

 

All the best, much love, Lauren xx

‘Spencer and Debbie – Friends Forever’ drawing – 60 progression photos

Hi all! Thanks for visiting my UnicornPostbox blog. My latest post is 60 progression photos of an amateur art drawing; ‘Spencer and Debbie – Friends Forever’ – drawn as a late birthday present for my mum Debbie’s best friend Joan, of Joan’s (very naughty, lol) bullmastiff Spencer and my lovely mum. Hope you enjoy!

Firstly, I used my A3 light pad to trace the outline of my reference photos. I then used Derwent soft sketching and coloured pencils to draw my amateur art, and a pilot friXion rollerball pen to define the images. I’m very much a fan of contrasting grey shades with block colour, it’s becoming my signature style 😛

It is not my favourite drawing I must admit. It’s certainly not a masterpiece by any means; I do not claim to be a professional artist. There are elements I am definitely not ecstatic with, such as the red chair being so abstract, and the random dark blue background was, in hindsight, maybe a mistake, in my opinion (Looked like the chair was floating in water so I tried to save it by incorporating some paw prints, ha!) Also, I wish my portraits were photorealistic, but I’m just not that good, ha! At least I’ve achieved some likeness 🙂

However, Joan was so over the moon with her gift, because of the sentimental value (with mum being so poorly), and the fact that I have dedicated hours upon hours of my time to create her a personalised present she can cherish forever… So that makes me very happy indeed 🙂 🙂

Here are some pics of the finished product!

‘Charlie the Chocolate Lab’ drawing – 45 progression photos

Good evening followers! Sorry it’s been a while! My latest UnicornPostbox blog post is progression photographs of an A2 size original amateur art drawing of Charlie the Chocolate Labrador, my sister Beth’s dog, I drew as a late 21st birthday present! Hope you enjoy! 🙂 🙂

I started off by tracing the outline of Charlie using my new A3 size light pad. I sketched Charlie with Derwent soft sketching pencils, and used different coloured pencils for the colour block background. I thought it would be a nice touch to incorporate some paw prints and bones in keeping with the dog theme. I also defined each shape, outlining with Berol handwriting pens, to make each individual image ‘pop’. Like my last drawing ‘Psychedelic Elephant’ (see previous blog post) I’m becoming fond of contrasting grey shades against bright bold colours, developing my own artistic style I guess, hehe 🙂 🙂

Charlie is getting really old bless her, she’s 13 nearly 14 years old! Our Beth has always wanted a drawing of Charlie she can cherish forever; she was so over the moon, happy and grateful when I presented her with the gift today, hehe!

Thank you so much for reading / viewing! 🙂 🙂

Hope you all have a fantastic bank holiday weekend, enjoy the sunshine!

Please keep a look out for more blog posts coming soon, including an upcycling project and a travel blog (me and mum are off to see ‘Grease – the musical’ soon in Leicester, ohhhh can’t wait!)

Much love, Lauren xx
