>My first creature attempt


I decided I had gotten into this class to be able to illustrate a children’s story book based on my dog and my son Pete’s dog so, this being the last class of the session, I better darn well take a stab at canines. Here’s Smokey. I realize her eyes look evil and scary and hollow and I’ll have to do something about that, but I am sort of pleased with the overall shape and stance and all that. What do you think?

And on the other picture — remember, I work in pairs at least, since it takes them time to dry — I still had another seascape in me, as illustrated here. It is from a scene on one of the travel brochures from the Panhandle region of Florida. I murked up the water something bad, but did an OK job on the seashells, sandollars and bird prints, I think.
